Carnglaze Caverns, Liskeard
Categories: Caves, Nature & Parks
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.To visit Carnglaze Caverns and get the most from your holiday in Liskeard, create itinerary details personal to you using our Liskeard family vacation planner.

Was rather hard to find. We were staying nearby but we got lost and it took us about an hour for a 15 minute journey so signage could have been better Free car parking and friendly welcome reception .. you even get a hard hat :D Was expecting the caves to be a little bigger but was nice nonetheless atmosphere was as you would expect in a dark cave with pools of water :) Has some information on rocks etc which is displayed nicely Is also used as a venue for little concerts which I imagine would be very lovely Also features a nice walk which takes you quite high. some lovely views and pretty additions to the flowers and fairy garden ) Lovely little gift shops also on site with a variety of jewellery, seaside, arty bits
A lovely place. The woodland is informal and beautiful - and perfect for little ones interested in nature. The caves are awesome when you consider they were hewn by hand. This is a professional, but personal and un-commercialised attraction. Well done!

Very interesting place to visit - we went for a wedding, probably the most unique venue you could think of!
A small, family run attraction. Very interesting place to visit.
Alot of money just to see the caverns (they're tiny compared to wokey hole for example) , but, the fairy garden nearly made up for it. Staff were friendly and helpful.
