A wet, foggy day drove us underground and we weren't disappointed in any way. The magical underground caverns and walkways were a spectacle to behold, all brought to life by the humorous, approachable and informative guide. A couple of hours very well spent!

This was a great experience visiting the longest cave in England on a rainy and cold afternoon during February half term. The underground waterfalls were spectacular and much of the mile long walk is spent walking on a grid over the rush of the underground stream. In fact on our return, leaving the cave, the water had risen over the... More

Took the nieces who live in the south of England for a half term treat £27.50ish for a family ticket (2+2) is not unreasonable for what you are about to experience.This is a 1 mile walk (there & back) through the caves, taking in waterfalls, streams and breathtaking beauty underground. The guides are very knowledgeable and happy to answer any... More

We visited the cave with our three daughters (4-11), and all loved it. Our guide (Tom) was very knowledgeable, and explained the history of the cave to us. A unique experience, and suitable even for our 4 year old.

This is a great experience for anyone wanting to experience a bit more than just walking into a cave. You have to climb steps, have a few tight squeezes and some low areas requiring you to walk a 60 odd meters bending down. The scenery is amazing and very, very interesting. We went with our two children age 10 and... More

We visited White Scar Cave on a cold and blustery Sunday in February. We were staying in Hawes and found the caves easily. We were unsure what to expect as this was our first visit and we had three children with us aged 7, 9 and 12. We were soon reassured by our tour guide Tom who can only be... More

A great way to spend an afternoon, the cave is fascinating with stalactites and stalagmites in weird and wonderful shapes, a waterfall and naturally fluorescent walls. the guide was excellent and everyone was very friendly. Our 3 year old loved it!

This is a cave full of water - there are two underground waterfalls and for much of the time you are walking on a mesh/scaffold walkway over running water. Very low headroom in places but our guide was absolutely excellent - very knowledgeable, friendly and happy to chat throughout the tour.

I first visited White Scar as a child and have been captivated with it since. I was fortunate enough to visit again, and it was brilliant. Our tour guide, Peter was extremely informative and knowledgeable. The beauty of the caves makes it well worth the visit.

Really good café system with a grid walkway for much of it. Must wear warm clothes, flat shoes and the hard hat provided. There are requirements to walk through very low passageways and to squeeze through tight gaps. Not for the unfit/inflexible/rotund. Cost about£9/person for 75 minutes guided tour. Toilets and cafe on site.
