Museums at Night Event

Special Evening Candle-lit tour  20th May 2017  7.00pm

We are putting on a special evening for this National Museums inititative. We take you on a visit through the caverns by candlelight, to see the caverns as they were experienced by the miners over many hundreds of years. But before you go underground, you have to make your own clay stick candleholder from the materials we provide so you can experience the trip as the miners did. The candleholder making and underground visit will take around 1.5-2 hours. 


Adult £12.00 Children £7.00    TICKETS

Please wear warm clothing and flat soled footwear, with a good grip.

Exciting and adventurous - 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 you can manage, give us a ring and we may still be able to arrange a trip for another time, through school holidays. You can book for individuals or small groups on the website, or for larger groups of six or more we can arrange a trip for a time to suit you; call the Caves to 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 an hour long, caving activity, an easier trip, suitable for most able bodied persons. The next caving activities are shown on the link below, or if you have a group of six or more please ring to book, 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.
