Caves themselves are not particularly impressive but Tour Guide (Andy) brings them to life in an engaging and numerous way. Andy made us glad that we had made the decision to do the tour. Bizarre entrance to the cave via a deserted shopping centre.

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)

I don’t think it does. A lady was stood behind a desk you could probably leave things with her. It’s in a shopping centre.... there maybe somewhere in there where you can leave things.
