  • Location Derbyshire
  • Duration 4 hours
  • Price from £45.00

Highlights

Treak Cliff Cavern is an Underground Wonderland of stalactites and stalagmites, rocks, minerals and fossils, and Home to the unique Blue John Stone! With an App previously downloaded onto your Smart phone, you follow a marked route through the cavern, with the information delivered to your phone via Blue tooth beacons as you move along. Our tours are designed to meet the new Good To Go standard introduced by Visit Britain after the Corona-virus lock-down. Entry times and online booking limit slots to your group only, so you can have peace of mind you can be socially distanced, enabling you to focus on the stunning cave and the great audio tour we have prepared. The walking tour lasts around 1 hour and there will be opportunities for stopping, photography and making the most of the journey. This Experience includes time in the work shop where the crafts people will help you select a semi prepared piece of Blue John Stone: they will show you how to rub it with different grades of abrasive paper until ready for the final stage. Then they will supervise while you polish it to a lovely shine, and attach a bail and leather cord. (Sterling silver chains are available to purchase for an additional charge, depending on length, weight, design etc.)
Then you can try your necklace on and adjust the length to fit !!
Be aware we are on a steep hillside so there is no wheelchair access to or inside the Cavern, and some areas underground are low and narrow.
