Deep Level Caving: AN EXCITING ADVENTURE BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE NOT ABLE TO OFFER CAVING ACTIVITIES AT THE MOMENT

Our show caverns only scratch the surface of the hidden world under the Forest. We would love to show you the extensive world beyond the public caverns, but this will have to wait a while until current restrictions have been lifted. We will post new dates for adventure caving when they are available once more.

PLAN YOUR SCHOOL TRIP OR GROUP OUTING WITH US

Adventure is always fun with company. If you have a larger group or class excursion we can tailor a tour, or accommodate your group according to your needs.

POSTPONED - NEW DATE TBC

The unique thrill of being underground brings an added dimension to any event. From parties, to theatre, concerts or our not so secret Christmas Fantasy spectacular.

SAVOUR THE DEPTHS OF FLAVOUR AT THE LAMPROOM CAFÉ

The Lamproom Café sits above ground as the only marker for the adventure taking place below. The Cafe will be serving delicious cakes and snacks along with teas and all your favourite coffees. Our café is another delightful discovery hidden amongst the trees of the Forest.

AS SEEN ON SCREEN

A space this unique naturally provides extraordinary magic and wonder, which is why over the years we’ve played host to the filming of numerous programmes such as His Dark Materials, Cursed, Britannia series 1&2, Dr Who, Merlin, The Chronicles of Narnia, Da Vinci’s Demons, Kidnapped and many others.
