What to Expect:
During the day you'll visit the Giants Hole cave system, learn about its creation over 300 million years, discover beautiful formations and fossils as well as evidence of mining dating back centuries. The caves is mostly walking sized with some sections of stooping or hands-and-knees crawling.
Please Note: You may need to pay a cave trespass fee of £3
What to Bring:
Before setting out you'll be kitted out with over suit, wellies, kneepads, helmet and lamp and we'll make a plan to be safe underground, including taking a detailed look at the weather.
Clothing that will keep you warm when wet will be needed to wear under the caving oversuit that is provided. A change of clothes and a towel are also a good idea.
