Yes. You can take even babies into the caves. Be aware that there is a sound and light show at the beginning of the tour and a brief moment darkness. Tour guides are well trained to look after and entertain children as well as the adults. Kids activity sheets are free.

Sorry she would have been slightly frightened and sorry I didn't get to answer earlier as I haven't been on TripAdvisor for a long while..

No. The trip is in darkness and is quite long. If she needs the toilet, another guide will have to come along to take you out and you will have to continue with another party. The tour you are on will have to be held up until the second guide arrives. The darkness is also quite scary and some younger children were in tears and screaming as some parts of the tour plunge you into total darkness.

Yes - the staff are well trained and would make the tour enjoyable for everybody. When my wife and I visited the attraction there were a few youngsters on the tour, and everybody enjoyed it :-)

I would say 'yes' as long as she's steady on her feet and you keep a close eye (which you would do anyway!)

Yes, there were children younger than her with us on last tour and guide can take you back if she is too scared. It is dark and it can be scary, also it is about 14 degrees so need to wrap up warm. Enjoy!

Hi,

there is plenty for your Daughter to do. They have a woodland trail which a lot of young children do. The first time we took our Daughter she was about two and a half she enjoyed it.

The only thing is when you go on the cave tours they do turn the lights off for about a minute, and it's pitch black to give you an idea of the conditions Neanderthals lived in. So with that it would depend on how your Daughter is with the dark. The rest of the tour they have the lights On, hope that helps x

Hello, I saw a few Mums with push buggies as there is a walk way. At one point the lights are all turned off to show how dark the cave is but it doesn’t last more than a few seconds. Maybe call them up to clarify buggies just to make sure but we took our son there who is 6 now (5 at the time) and he really enjoyed it. Hope that helps

It is suitable for children but be aware that during the visit you will be plunged into total darkness.
