The world famous Blue John Cavern in Castleton in the Peak District has been said to be the finest that can be seen by the general public in Western Europe.
Guided tours are conducted throughout the cave system at short regular intervals, during which time a series of magnificent natural water-worn caverns are seen. Blue John can be seen in it’s natural state along with stalactites, stalagmites and huge caverns. See the Waterfall Cavern with it’s multi-coloured dome… Visit Lord Mulgraves Dining Room where his Lordship entertained miners, and where fine veins of Blue John can be seen in their natural state in the limestone… Stand in the Variegated Cavern, 150 feet high and 30 feet wide!
We have great facilities including our new cafe (open at weekends) to enjoy a light snack before or after your tour of the cavern.
The trip is of great educational experience to the young and old alike. If you are adventurous and looking for something unusual to do with your leisure time, come and visit the Blue John Cavern at Castleton – you won’t be disappointed! We offer a fantastic day out with kids in the peak district.
