Not at all what I was expecting but still good. Loads of local history around the caves and a good fun hour spent wandering through them and reading all the stories on the walls. Well done! The walk up to the Mausoleum was fairly Steep...More

Caves that date back early last century. Own by the dashwoods & national trust. Very rare & unusual place to visit. Has cafe & great views . Family friendly.

Have been coming here for a long time now, always a brilliant couple of hours spent. Very spooky and have taken plenty of photos of the kids with orbs floating around in the background. Highly recommended.

It was pleasantly cool after the July heat outside, but that's about the only positive thing I can say. Cheesy dioramas, and fibreglass and foam stalagmites and stalactites. And it's a mine, not a cave.

As the first visitors of the day we walked the caves alone, which was dark and a little scary. The story is quite fascinating and is very easy to follow. You don’t realise how deep you are actually going until you get out of breath...More

They may not be the biggest network of caves, but because they're manmade and have such an interesting history, they're well worth a visit.

Went with my boyfriend very informative and you can stroll around at your own pace. Gets quite cold the deeper I’m you go. We saw what we thought was a manikin but when we walked down the next part it was gone. Quite spooky.

It was nice trip, didn't take us longer than one hour to go through it all tho, therefore I don't think it's worth the on-gate price.

You will struggle pushing a wheelchair. There are many inclines with gravel / shingle walkways.

The best option is to check times and prices, including access, all in their official website (in case they change anything). Also if you do go don't forget to visit the church and old mystery looking graveyard/memorial that... More

As previous person replies yes would be a problem with a pushchair as some of the passageways are quite narrow and poorly lit, and the ground is uneven in places
