  • My son aged 11 was impressed that the tour was self guided. His interpretation was that each person had a guide and that this was 'posh'. In reality you can spend as long as you like in each part of t...  more »

  • I brought my class here on a trip. The staff were knowledgeable about the cavern and the surrounding area and really brought the trip to life. Parent-helpers and adults on the trip were so enthused on...  more »
  • I first visited Stump Cross Caverns in the early 1970s. There was a crude tin dry toilet and a tatty old wooden shed to gain entry. Things have certainly changed for the better. There is now a wonderful reception center offering a huge selection of gifts to buy and a lovely cafĂ© offering a good selection of food and drink.

It takes about 30 mins to walk around but you can take as much time as you want as there is no guided tours hurrying you along. Well worth a visit.

Different coloured helmets for children's helmets would be great.
  • We called in today after always promising we would and weren't disappointed- we were served our cake (homemade and delicious) and coffee (piping hot) by some of the friendliest staff you could wish to meet. The underground adventure was also a treat and very educational. Certainly a place to visit - even on the warmest and sunniest day we have had for a long time!
  • A port in a storm for hungry cyclists and a proper bike rack with locks. They take contactless as well...
