Really enjoyed looking around the caves and seeing something different, I would go back and see it again, although didn’t do the cliff top walk because of the weather, also take appropriate footwear

Last visited the caves 50 years ago, long enough to forget what I'd seen! The caves themselves are still worth a visit despite the rows of tatty gift/souvenir shops and tea rooms topped off with the ubiquitous Costa Coffee.

Everyone has answered your question. We are here now, it's very quiet. I would suggest you park immediately opposite the entrance, in Costa. Let your other half out, then you park up. Just a thought.
