Well it started so well with the enthusiastic tour guide explaining what to expect including the fantastic light and sound show and then we descend the staircase and that's when it fell apart! The tour guide speech was swamped by noisy children-too young to be...More

The formations in this case are superb and superbly presented by the lighting and the gorgeous guide whose English was great. The variety of stalactites is amazing and their delicacy beautiful. The case also has ancient cave paintings, which are well preserved. The spaces are...More

Get there early to avoid crowds. Caves are magnificent and well worth a visit. It was a very informative visit.

No it is not suitable for pushchairs in the caves but the garden and shop and cafe are suitable for pushchairs. Inside the caves, the paths are quite narrow so it would be advisable to carry your child if possible.
