Hi there - we don’t have an age restriction on our cave tours and strive to make it interesting and entertaining for all ages. If you visit during the school holiday the tour becomes an interactive character tour where you will meet 3 different people from the caves' history.
Unfortunately, there is no pushchair access so parents would need to carry babes in arm. Hope that helps!
No idea - there weren't any when we were there, but email the caves direct to be sure.
Hope you enjoy the trip. (also the oldest pub in the UK - 12th century - it's nearby - Ye olde Trip to Jerusalem - good one to tick off)
