  • Showed up and had a tour within 5 minutes. Only 3 persons on the tour so plenty of interaction with the guide. Really interesting. Definitely not for people who have difficulty with stairs.  more »
  • Came here after visiting Blue John Cavern, and it was just as good. The tour guide was brilliant and so friendly. He took his time on the tour for us as we were the only ones there. It was fantastic a...  more »

  • We had a very friendly, informative guide who was very good with children in the party. The shop was also a good experience: nice variety and reasonably priced. We spent a fair amount, so they gifted us a small piece. We also visited Blue John Cavern: not as spectacular, and, though we spent nearly 5 times.as.much (we went there first-shame), the packaging was worse and we were offered nothing. If you only want to visit one cave in this area, my vote is for Treak!
  • 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 blows out the candle, you couldn't see your hand in front of your face.
  • Fabulous caves with plenty of Blue John to see. Very knowledgeable guide able to answer every question thrown at him. Gift shop with some lovely pieces including samples of Blue John plus jewellery and items made from the stone. Also some items made from other semi precious stones. Access to the caves is via some very steep steps which does make these caves inaccessible to wheelchair users and the infirm I would recommend these caves and would definitely visit again.
  • On a wet and miserable day the tour guide was really good and improved our trip. Kids seemed to be really interested too. Xx
  • Best cave in Castleton. Bit of a walk up to the entrance (not wheelchair friendly), but the cave is amazing as are the guides (Ben, in particular, is very knowledgeable and don’t forget to try out his beer in Ye Olde Nags Head!). Well worth a visit
