  • Great day. The tour lasted an hour. Walking through the cavern. The lady who took us through was great and made the tour very enjoyable. Very interesting and well worth going to see. Plenty of parking, £5 all day and if you are doing both caverns it's only a 10 minute walk between them.
  • Went to the Cavern for a concert and not for the usual tour, I saw Think Floyd, a Pink Floyd tribute act. I have never been to a concert in a cave before and found the whole experience to be really good. The ambiance was great, it's so different to your usual venue, that combined with the music of Pink Floyd made for an awesome night. There was only a small section of seating which was reserved for people who weren't able to stand for the duration of the concert and also a few benches, there was also a bar. Overall well worth visiting.
  • The location is beautiful, views amazing. The tour guide Nigel made our trip interesting and fun. Wear warm clothes even if its a nice day as its very cold in the mine.We visited Speedwell on August 18. We have been twice before, most recently a year ago, so we are familiar with the facilities. Returning from the ride the boat moved as my wife was getting off. My wife fell heavily badly gashing both legs
  • Brilliant views.. Mam Tor is a great climb, which is nearby. Dolly 'N' Ted's Tea Rooms on The Stones is absolutely amazing with great cakes and service!
  • Went as park of an outdoor cinema experience to watch Jurassic Park in its natural environment. A great venue for events with a breathtakint approach. Be sure to look up on the way in to see birds circling the cliff faces way above.
