A very reasonable £27.50 per family was the start of our adventure 'underground' The tour takes you 1km through some very narrow and low tunnels. Definitely not for the elderly or infirm. Would recommend this more for families with kids 7 and over as young children may be frightened. Am excellent guide led us through a maze of tunnels. Pointing... More

It is truly amazing how a young guy could discover this wonderful cave in 1923. Many more brave cave climbers enabled us to gain access to such a natural beauty. The walk is not difficult but you have to bend yourself a bit if you are too tall. Don't try to come during rainy days as the flood level inside... More

We visited Yorkshire on a rainy week so the cave we were not able to take a tour. They weren't sure if they would get opened so they let us in for free (not to far into the cave) to see how heavy the water was! We could tell why they weren't able to let anyone to far in, as... More

Brilliant!! must have a look if you... More

We all had waterproof jackets on plus a hard hat (supplied!). Excellent guide on the tour of the caves. A great tour with informative descriptions of the rock formations/ stalagmites etc. Great visit.

We visited the caves with our family and weren't sure exactly what to expect...we had a very friendly welcome from the gentlemen in the ticket office and we're assigned our hard hats and more importantly our guide, Darren. Darren led us into the cave and pointed out the sights and regaled us with his humour and insight. All of us... More

We spent £27.50 for a family ticket. High hopes that my 8 year old son may get some facination and awe from the experience. No so. My 3 year old son did make it to the end and back but was too young to gain any meaningful experience from it. Not the cave peoples fault. But even my wife and... More

Thank you for your visit. The cave is a natural space and there are two low sections, one of which typically takes about two minutes to get through and the other about half a minute. Obviously tall people such as yourself have to bend low to negotiate these passages. However, we find that most people are OK with them as... More

The views inside the cave were spectacular however there was 2 low tunnels so if your over 6 foot tall I'd recommend giving it a miss.
