If it had not been for trip advisor I would not have known about Scott's Grotto.

It's signposted from outside the college on the road between Amwell and Hertford.

The Grotto is only open on Saturday and bank Holiday Monday afternoons so parking is not a problem as you can park on the streets in the surrounding area however I would imagine during the week you would struggle to find a parking space.

There are stewards in the grotto and summer house who are available to answer any questions.

I would definitley recommend you bring a torch although the stewards do have torches if you don't have one.

The grotto is separated into different rooms and all are decorated with sea shells, pieces of flint and other rocks.

It's a very magical place and would recommend it to anyone who loves something a little different!

Great little place. Buried 60 ft into a hillside this place is lovely to see. It’s Avery beautiful place and the volunteers are very enthusiastic and helpful. Well worth a visit! *****

Visited with 7 year old daughter on bank holiday Monday . Fascinating little place which I never knew existed despite living only a few miles away . Tucked away between houses , you can't even see it from the road , but well worth the visit if you get chance . Only takes about 15 minutes to get round the caves , but you can go round several times , and visit the summer house up above .
Highly recommended if you are in Ware on a Saturday afternoon or bank holiday .

Live at Hoe Lane for 8 years but never been there until a niece came to visit us from Republc of Ireland. So we took her there. Yes, do bring touch and wear casual with comfy shoes. Only available on Summer time. Happy to pay £1 per person. Good for children or teenager but not recommend people on wheel chair. We had a great time.
