Set in a wonderful location, we enjoyed our tour. It’s self guided which meant we could spend how long we wanted inside looking around! We loved hearing about the history of the caves and the staff were really helpful and friendly!

We were first in on the day and were met at the door by the incredibly friendly owner Vicky who had inherited the site from her relatives who discovered the infamous Blue John veins in the first place! We did some stone polishing and then headed off using the new self guided audio cavern tours, which had clearly been lovingly recorded with a lot of care, and worked very well in the cavern (as long as you remembered to connect to the wifi to download the recordings beforehand!). The cavern itself has so many different features unlike the other caves in the Castleton region, with different displays and minerals in each section to see, like stalactites hanging from the walls to the 'seven little dwarfs' in the main area! Everything had been carefully sectioned off as per Covid restrictions and there were lots of hand gel areas after steep staircases which required you to hold onto the handrails next to them which was very thoughtful. When you leave you are also greeted to a wonderful view of the Mam Tor area-if you are to only visit one of the caverns in the area, I wholeheartedly recommend this one!

Having got an arthritic knee, I was concerned about whether I would be able to walk the cavern - not a problem; as the staff at the entrance told me "If you can walk up from the car park to the entrance you've already done the steep bit!". The tour itself was self-guided using an app on my mobile phone and it worked very well. Tours were organised in seperate 10 minute bubbles, so were very Covid safe.

Visited today, we were greeted by friendly staff. The tour itself was excellent. So easy to download the app and it automatically took you around the Cavern which was beautiful and very interesting. We were well spaced out from other groups, the guild lines were very easy to follow and there was hand sanitiser everywhere, we felt very safe. The whole place was very dog friendly, it was great to take the dog with us into the Cavern. Would really recommend, especially for dogs and their humans.
