Thank you. It is good to know that you enjoyed your tour of the cave. To our knowledge, nobody has got stuck in the squeeze, although quite a few think in advance that they might.

Everything about our visit to the cave was excellent. The 'cheeky chappie' tour guide (didn't get his name, Cockney bloke I think (sorry if not!)) was as brilliant and informed as he was entertaining. He made an already fascinating insight into an underground realm even...More

Thank you. Good to know that you enjoyed seeing Father Christmas in the cave. The Sword of Damocles was damaged many years ago, and had to be repaired. it is now protected by a metal grille.

We came today, it was so lovely. The caves are amazing anyway, but to have the caverns all Christmasy was lovely, also the gifts the children were able to chose were of a great quality.
