Santa Grotto

Excellent experience. The cave itself is stunning and worth seeing anyway. Christmas decorations and the Grotto with Santa and gifts for kids are a great idea. Highly recommended.

Very good activity. We visited on a Sunday morning, a few people joined us on our tour, about another 18. Good underfoot, but need strong shoes, and there are a few areas where you need to bend double to get passed, and an area called The Squeeze where you can get by sidewards. Our tour guide was great, and it... More

The hubby and I visited for the first time this year. Caves were great. Would have liked more time to look instead of being moved on with group.

We visited the white Scar caves in November. It had been raining on and off for a couple of hours, so not the best day for sight seeing, but the Caves trip fitted in exactly. Be prepared for a bit of exercise as some of the caves can only be negotiated bent in half, ( not good if you have... More

Really good day at White Scar Cave.It was really interesting and fun to walk around for all ages. The lights in my pictures were beautiful and there isn't any really small parts that you have to squeeze through so it's great and our tour guide was really helpful! Thanks! :)

My boyfriend and I visited the White Scar Caves in October, there was very efficient running of the tours with people being taken down to the caves every half an hour which meant we didn't have to wait for very long. We stopped by the little cafe and had toasties before we went down which were lovely. The caves themselves... More

80 minute tour under Ingleborough. The tour takes you half a mile . Tour guide is very knowledgeable and explains how and why. Enjoyable tour, good value £9.50 per adult. Most of the tour is easy walking

Altho quite expensive entry, was a very interesting tour of how pot hollers discovered these breath taking caves. We were very lucky to have a very informative guide. Tho you do need to be quite bendy to get through some of the narrow pathways.

Wish all caving was a easy as this. There's a fee for a guided tour of the caves. The going is easy along metal, grid platforms that run above the stream. there are only two places where you'll need to crouch and duck-walk for access, one place where you'll really need to suck-it-in if you're over 200lbs. And if you're... More

Thank you for your visit, and for your review. For safety reasons we do not permit flash photography, bulky camera equipment, or videoing in the cave. Still photography with hand-held cameras is fine, but we ask visitors please to keep up with their tour group and guide. It is good to know that the cave is suitable for "softies". William More

Very interesting to see inside a cave and to get to walk around inside. The free flow of water and natural formations were mesmerising. A definite must do if in the area. Not entirely suitable for less able people.
