Carnglaze Caverns consists of three man-made caverns formed as part of a slate quarry in the Loveny Valley, near the village of St Neot, Liskeard, Cornwall, England, UK. In recent years Carnglaze Caverns has been used as an unusual concert venue.The first of the caverns, the Rum Store, is so called because it was used by the Royal Navy during the Second World War to store its supply of rum. In 2001 it was converted into an auditorium with seating for 400.The lowest of the three caverns has a lake, which was where the cover image for Echo & the Bunnymen's LP Ocean Rain was shot.Carnglaze Caverns has hosted concerts by folk-rock artists such as Fish and Fairport Convention, as well as bands such as Embrace (in 2004), and British Sea Power (in 2005 and 2007), as well as hosting craft and mineral shows.

  • My husband and I always love to visit a cave. We found this place to be a little unloved and a bit shabby. The caves themselves were obviously amazing as caves tend to be. However, the left out chairs...  more »

  • Fairly small cavern but interesting to look around. Steep stairs down to the main cavern but manageable even with some mobility issues. Nice woodland walk but isn't suitable for anyone with mobility problems
  • Small attraction but a lovely experience. The caves are really impressive if you take your time and wide open so no problem with claustrophobia. My 4yo loved the fairy trail, it is really well put together and a beautiful wood. Most of the place is on very steep land though so there are steps everywhere apart from the first cavern which is the least interesting.
  • I've been a few times. Fascinating history and stunning inside. Went to listen to an orchestra and that was amazing. Take your time. The woodland walk was fun, but the caverns are the main attraction.
  • Fascinating look at the slate mining history of Cornwall. I had no idea that so many things were mined in and around Devon and Cornwall.
  • In this part of the world, you'll be amazed at how beautiful nature is. But the caves are eerily stunning. Wish we'd thought about having our wedding there. If you get the chance, go there. It's well worth it. There's more than just the cave...
