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. We’re located within some of the Peak District’s most beautiful countryside. You can take in the breathtaking views from nearby, world-famous Mam Tor or visit the charming village of Castleton which is within walking distance. Children under 5 are FREE and do not need to have tickets. Please let us know if you intend to bring more than 4 children under 5 for any given slot so we can manage capacity. 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. At least one adult (18+) MUST be present for insurance policies, so please only book if there is an adult in your party. We look forward to welcoming you!
