A good 80 minutes worth of guided walking in the caves, some areas requiring walking like an ape to avoid banging heads. Interesting to both children and adults. Tip - arrive early as you group is likely to be smaller.

You have to take a guided tour and it's well worth it. Our guide, Tracie, was so friendly and knowledgeable that it made the trip into 1/2 a mile of caves so interesting and exciting.

We visited the caves as a family to break up a long and rainy journey on the M6 - very glad we did! Funnily enough, it was a good activity for the wet weather as it was more dry inside the caves. The tour guide...More

Have wanted to visit the caves for years. I got the opportunity this time and wasn't disappointed. Interesting and informative hike through the watery and rocky caverns! Keep your hard hat on!!the roof is very low in some spots.
