Had a lovely visit! The tour guide was great, both informative and fun! The tour didn't go very far into the caves, but there was still plenty to see

We went for the light switch on and ended up in the cavern instead. Highly recommend it to everyone. Tour last about an hour amd is really informative. Wear warm clothes in winter. Really good tour guide. A must see.

Second of two underground visits today, interesting seeing how rope is made and amazing to think that people have lived here inside this cave entrance in the past, makes one feel quite humble. The tour guide was enthusiastic and lively with lots of interesting information about early visits from famous writers. Fun, informative and worthy of a visit. The ground... More

I visited the cave with my university and really enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide Sam made the tour interesting and humorous. I enjoyed the rope making demonstration and the cave itself is magnificent - it just keeps going! Definitely go and have a look if you're in Castleton but check the tour times!

Knowledgable guide with a sense of humour. Small groups on each guided tour. Wrap up warm as it's cold underground. Excellent Halloween decoration.

Children loved learning how rope is made and watching the grown ups have to bend to get through Lumbago Walk. Amazed by it's size.

We had no real plan when we arrived in Castleton and visited the cave based on a sign in the car park. We timed it well and only had a 5 minute wait before the next tour. Our guide was amazing, really energetic and funny and had loads of interaction with us. I enjoyed the mixture of information about the... More

This is a guided tour by a friendly guide who favours interaction. You learn about rope making then the history of the cave. Take your jumper its cold
