  • We woke up to a very wet day so we decided to head down the caverns. Treak Cliff is dog friendly so that helped us in our choice. Our guide was very informative and enthusiastic which always helps. An...  more »
  • I am so glad we chose to visit this cave. I love cavern tours and this was one of the best I have been on. The caves are so beautiful and indeed unique as Blue John stone is only found in this place. ...  more »

  • Really enjoyable experience provided by a very good tour guide. We explored the last cave just with candles and then in total darkness. Met some great people visiting from Canada. Highly recommended. Of the caverns in the area this is the one I recommend.
  • Really impressive caves and a reasonable entrance fee. Parking is free, don't make the mistake I did and pay for parking in the Speedwell Cavern car park. There is also access to Mam Tor behind the caves which is well worth a visit for a walk and impressive view. The guide was very knowledgeable and relaxed, you got a lot of time to inspect the caves and it was made really fun. In the second to last cave, the guide spoke by candlelight and then goes out the candle, you couldn't see your hand in front of your face.
  • Fantastic Blue John cavern. Best one for stalactites. Great shop, guided tour, and chance to polish your own blue john stone (OK you probably need a kid to justify doing this but I enjoyed it more than they did) :-)
  • Astonishing, wonderful place, will have a special place in our heart. Spectacular ores can be discovered and the wonderland of stalactites and stalagmites adored. Our guide was marvellous, very friendly, made the tour a memorable experience. Kids can polish Blue John Stone and the gift shop is a treasure trove of minerals. The cavern lies below the magnificent Mam Tor with a view over the beautiful Hope Valley.
  • A great visit, decent tour taking about 40 minutes altogether. Several caverns both natural and man-made from mining for blue John stone. The staff were friendly and the shop well stocked. Facilities on site including cafe and toilets.
