Visited with our teenagers and our friends with 2 younger children. All enjoyed. Our guide Sam was very informative and the caves are worth a look. All the children polished their own piece of blue john afterwards, a nice souvenir to take home.
Treak Cliff Cavern is a great little place to explore. The caverns are magical and the tour guide who showed us them was very knowledgeable and friendly!
I think a ‘Blue John’ veined cheese should be introduced into the equation, a la Cheddar Gorge. I...More
Just got home after a visit to the Treak Cliff cavern and I must say it was a decent trip, the young girl tour guide was very informative, of course you need to have an interest in the subject matter before venturing underground, which incidentally...More

Walked from Castleton on the roadway there and pathway back. Great amazing views.
My 6 year old loved it so did the pooches who were allowed inside.

Another of Derbyshires brilliant caverns. A must if you are up that way. Our guide Sam was brilliant, knowledgeable and witty. Gift shop, cafe, facilities. Lots of steps up to the cavern and more inside. Not good for people with mobility problems. Amazing.
I would book. We took a crowd of 50 plus there (we had booked!) and some that turned up without booking had quite a wait behind us. But you could just phone ahead and ask them what time is busy that day

To access it's a very steep path with s gross isn't of about 1:3. The path is about 500 yards long. That just to get to the entrance. Definitely not a place to visit unless you are able to walk up and down steep inclines.
