Had afternoon tea... nice seats (arm chairs), friendly staff, good tea and food. Fish finger sandwiches were excellent. A great place for a snack, which always delivers.

Sitting right on top of the Moors between Grassington and Pateley Bridge, these caverns are worth a visit. Make sure you wear the hard hats provided, you will need them!! Some great stalagmites and stalactites. Also has a very ice tearoom.

A rainy day in North Yorkshire we decided to visit the caverns. I am 6ft 6 and found myself crouching most of the way round as it is very low in places. But the hard hat worked a treat. The caverns are well worth visiting...More

Following an extremely interesting tour of the caves, we had a wonderful meal in the cafe. The quality of the home made food is amazing and all at a very modest price. Do not miss it.

Hi sorry for the delay! I would say not really as you go down a flight of steps to get to the cave and the floor is uneven you have to bend a lot so you don’t bang your head ( you are provided with hard hats) hope that helps. More

No, you can turn up anytime between 10am and 5pm and buy tickets when you arrive. The tour of the cave is self guided so there's no specific time you need to come for. We hope to see you soon!
