Must see · Cave · Nature / Park
A network of caves White Scar Cave features one of the longest-known cave chambers in Britain. You can even see helictites, cave formations that grow spirally, sideways, and every which way. In addition to touring this fascinating underground world, a cafe and a gift shop are also present. Stop by the visitor’s center to see a large-scale plan of the cave system, historic photographs, and material about nearby places of interest. Pay special attention if you are the last of the day to tour the caves. It is rumored a disembodied, murmuring voice follows the last guide out of the cave.

  • Amazing place.. the stalagmites and stalactites formation in the cave that have been there for thousands / if not millions of years. We have actually seen a coral fossil which proves that England was indeed a tropical country million of years ago. The facility is quite good as well, good cafeteria and very clean modern toilets which I did not expect at all.. as it says cavewoman toilet... 😂
  • Absolutely amazing. The walk through takes around 80 minutes and is incredible. Take a jacket or jumper because it is quite chilly. Also some areas are very low so if you have back/knee issues please note that you will have to bend or crouch to get under some overhangs.
