DISCOVER THE WONDER OF UNDER
Underneath the mysterious Royal Forest of Dean lies something spectacular and unseen , an unfathomable natural cave system that has been mined for more than 4,500 years.
UNEARTH THE ORE-INSPIRING STORY OF THE FREEMINERS
For at least 4,500 years Freeminers have been mining here, leaving behind magnificent caverns and an abundance of amazing stories.
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. We will be posting new dates for adventure caving when they are arranged
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.
Events at Clearwell Caves
Thank you to everyone who visited the exciting contemporary sculpture exhibition curated by Gallery Pangolin.
We now close for September to reinstate the mining museum and re-open in October.
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 The Change, His Dark Materials, Cursed, Britannia, Dr Who, Merlin, Da Vinci’s Demons, Kidnapped, Blake's Seven and many others.
