Lots of events and happenings at the caves!!

We run many and varied events throughout the year, including watching films underground, caving, theatical events, and even parties, all alongside our opening for the visitors to the amazing cave complex. Check back here to see what is coming soon.


Our  Christmas event is now closed and being packed away!

We re-open February Half Term holiday, 10th February.

Visit us then, to see how these historic caverns were created, then mined for ochre and iron ore, over thousands of years. Walk in the footsteps of iron miners, to experience the atmospheric workings and spectacular displays.


Book an exciting and adventurous caving activity - Try Caving!

 

Come caving at the caves   

Explore beneath the Earth's surface, have fun and enjoy challenges at the same time, as you discover this unique natural cave and mine system. If you don't see a date available that you can manage, give us a ring and we may still be able to arrange a trip for another time. You can book for individuals, or small groups on the website, or groups of six or more, call the Caves to enquire, or book.

Specialist and educational visits by schools are particularly welcome from 7yrs+ - we are licensed by the AALA for caving activities and hold the LOtC Adventure Mark.

There are two levels of caving activity: Deep Level - for more adventurous visitors ... and Semi-Deep Level - combining a tour of the show cave with a shorter caving activity, both trips are suitable for most able bodied persons and can be suited to complete novices through to experienced cavers. The next caving activities are shown on the link below, or if you have a group of six or more please ring to book, any time throughout the year. Maximum 15 persons for each group, but up to three groups can be taken at a time. Both activities are great fun, but will involve getting dirty.
