What Cave Will We Do? 

If you have never been before we will take you down a good starter cave like Goatchurch Cavern which can take 2 to 3 hours

This is a dry cave with every size of passage for you to try

We want you to enjoy the experience and come again,  so we will take things at your pace, and go down passages where you feel comfortable
