Treak Cliff Cavern Self-Guided Audio Tour during Christmas

Treak Cliff Cavern

Select Option


The self-guided Audio on your own smartphone takes you on the Tour of the Cavern, and you can stop and start as you go along to answer the Rocks Trail quiz. You will see the Underground Wonderland of stalactites and stalagmites, rocks, minerals and fossils, and our beautifully unique Blue John Stone!

With an App previously downloaded onto your Smartphone, you follow a marked route through the cavern, with the information delivered to your phone via Bluetooth beacons as you move along.

Entry times and online booking limit slots to your group of 6 people (not counting those who are exempt or in your Support bubble), so you effectively have a socially distanced private tour, enabling you to focus on the stunning cave and the audio tour, and the Christmas lights and themes. The walking tour lasts around 1 hour and you can stop, take photographs and gaze at the rocks around you!

The 'Polish your own Blue John Stone Activity' is available before or after your Cavern Tour.
