GUIDELINES FOR YOUR VISIT


- Please do not touch formations. Stalactites and stalagmites take a long time to form. They are easily discoloured by people touching them and the more fragile formations can break. Please help us protect the beauty of the cave.

- To protect the cave atmosphere and for the enjoyment and consideration of others, we ask that you do not smoke in the cave.

- Photography and video are permitted in selected areas of the cave.




Please consider the environment before printing this email. We do not require a printed confirmation of your booking.

During the busy summer season we advise booking is essential so please book in advance.
