Really enjoyed this tour. Guide was fantastic, lots of amazing info, from the Romans, through the ages.
Luckily we saw some hibernating horseshoe bats, great to see them up close.
Don’t miss these caves if you’re in the area.

We called to book and they reserved our places without any problem for an afternoon tour. There were hard hats a plenty and we were lead into the cave entrance. Our tour guide was so informative, great with the kids and made sure that no one wondered off (there's always one!..). Seeing names/dates carved in the walls, demonstrations and the resident bats were fantastic.
The team are so passionate about the place and somewhere like this really needs extra funding from the Heritage Lottery etc to open it up to others too. Thank you for a great visit.

A very interesting tour of the caves with lots of information from our guide. Also lucky to have visited at the right time of year to see the lease and greater horseshoe bats.

We visited on quite a dreary day with our 2 children aged 4 & 2.
The tour itself was quite full so was rather difficult to hear the guide from the back. The caves were interesting but I wouldn’t recommend for young children. The tour consists of stopping & listening at various points so there was very little to keep young children amused-Could perhaps do with some interactive information boards or something? When they did make noise it would echo & distract from the guide. We ended up leaving half way through which was a shame but the kids were bored and we couldn’t hear anything! Although the kids were free it was a bit of a waste of money to be honest.
I would like to return but without the kids next time!
Make sure you wrap up warm & wellies are a good idea but not essential.

Visited here at the end of March really enjoyed the tour, even got to see a few bats.
Very informative tour guide, pitched perfectly to the group (varied from small children to adults).
Would recommend
