Due to the nature of the Caves we’re afraid they are not accessible to wheelchair users or to anyone with significant mobility problems. Access is via two sets of stairs, both with handrails, followed by a steep, narrow, low-ceilinged tunnel. Once in the Caves, the floor is uneven and there are steep steps to access certain areas.

Assistance dogs are welcome of course, but no other dogs are allowed in the Caves. Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the garden.

We have fiddle kits and ear defenders available for those who may benefit from them. Just ask a member of staff on arrival.

The visitor centre – including shop, café, toilets and community rooms for hire – is widely accessible. We have large-print versions of our exhibition available to download here.

Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions we haven’t answered, or require any assistance once on site.

We are always endeavouring to improve accessibility at the Caves, so please check back before your visit for any updates and see below for our full accessibility statement.

We have relaxed openings throughout the year- find out more here.
