The cavern is decorated with fairy lights, Christmas trees, and candles. Rocks and minerals from around the world are incorporated into the decorations to create even more Festive Feel, including a giant fossil and sparkly minerals, with Fairy lights shining through them; 'Rock hounds' and 'Christmas-aholics' should really enjoy this Experience!!! And for children there are quiz sheets avaiable at the Entrance to help them enjoy the Cavern, search out information and keep them busy while adults listen to the audio! (Dogs on leads are welcome in the cave too)
You can stop and start as you go along to see the Underground Wonderland of stalactites and stalagmites, rocks, minerals and fossils, and our beautiful unique Blue John Stone! . Entry times and online booking limit slots to your group so you effectively have your own  private tour. enabling you to focus on the stunning cave and the audio tour, and the Christmas lights and themes. The walking tour lasts around 50 minutes and you can stop, take photographs and gaze at the rocks around you.
Children under 5 are FREE and do not need to have tickets. 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.
