This cave adventure is perfect for kids (ours ranged from 8-12). It is very low intensity with lots of cool things to see during the 80 minute tour. Our guide was very good and knowledgable and both the kids and adults enjoyed it. If you are looking for intense caving this is not the right experience for you.

Me, my partner and some of my partners family stayed in a cottage in the lakes for a week back in July/August and came here towards the end of our holiday. It was a really interesting visit and amazing to go through the caves with the tour guide who had lots of information. There some low parts were you have... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at White Scar Caves on New Years day on the off chance it would be open and it was. The site is very well kept. We began the tour with Nick. He was very knowledgeable and, as we toured the cave system, he explained the history and geology of the cave. He was... More

We visited White Scar Caves on the 31st December. Our tour guide Chris made our walk through the caves very enjoyable! He provided us with all the information about the caves and also played good guessing games with what some of the rock formations looked like. the cavern at the end of the walk is an amazing thing to see!

As a group of 6 ladies (50+) we were a tad disappointed when we arrived at White Scar caves to find that the Geological tour wasn't on because Santa was in residence. However, the whole cafe and entrance was decorated for Christmas and really very festive. Also everyone we spoke to was truly friendly and happy and interesting to talk... More

Visited with my wife on 29th December. Took the 2pm tour which involved 10 of us in the group. We had a tour guide who made the visit very interesting as well as educational. Avoiding the low ceilings during the tour was fun :) Thumbs up for the experience. Totally recommend it! This tour has been going on for over... More

We have had a great day at white scar caves the staff are amazingly friendly and extremely knowledgable. The caves themselves are amazing and magical in themselves but when you go into the caves and see the lights and Santa is at the end it made the experience of visiting the man in red so much more. The only issue... More

Excellent experience. The cave itself is stunning and worth seeing anyway. Christmas decorations and the Grotto with Santa and gifts for kids are a great idea. Highly recommended.

Very good activity. We visited on a Sunday morning, a few people joined us on our tour, about another 18. Good underfoot, but need strong shoes, and there are a few areas where you need to bend double to get passed, and an area called The Squeeze where you can get by sidewards. Our tour guide was great, and it... More
