I visited The National Showcaves during a recent visit to Wales. The first thing that strikes you is the huge dinosaur at the entrance, and once inside you quickly realise they are everywhere. Why this attraction doesn't promote this more is beyond me, as most children go through a love affair with dinosaurs phase. The caves themselves are very impressive, Dan-y-Rogof cave is nicely lit to emphasise the various rock formations and stalactites and stalagmites and audio commentary shares with you the experience of the young boys who discovered the caves. On leaving there to head for the Bone Cave, you pass an Iron Age Village, which would be better if you could peak into the huts. The Bone Cave is dark and tiny, and not worth the trek to get to it. However The Cathedral Cave is a sight to behold with dramatic lighting, cascading waterfalls and a classical soundtrack to enhance the experience, definitely worth the entrance fee on its own. The museum on the way out is a bit of an after thought and there is a restaurant which has friendly service and good food when you're in need of refreshment. All in all an enjoyable day out.
