Book Now - Plughole Adventure Caving Experience

This is a genuine ‘white knuckle’ underground adventure - perfect for first-time cavers. As part of a small group, two highly experienced cavers guide you every step of the way, as you abseil, squeeze, crawl and climb through an undeveloped cave, in overalls and helmet, with only a headlamp to light your way. As your confidence grows, the squeezes get longer. Look carefully, and you'll see some fine crystal, but this tour is not about cave decorations. It is an adventure experience!

Move on through the 'Crystal Chamber' and take time for a breather in 'The Chapel'. The 'Armchair Squeeze' leads you into the fun of the 'Rockpile', then the aptly named 'Letterbox Squeeze'. This adventure is called 'The Plughole' for good reason. The 'S-Bend' is the way out of the cave! You get dirty, but as you face each challenge, you gain self-assurance and emerge with a special exhilaration and a brand new swagger.

Please note that Covid restrictions still apply to this experience. You will be required to show your double vaccination, we will be checking your temperature and asking standard covid questions when you are filling in our indemnity form and you will be required to wear a mask on the tour.

Average Duration: 2.5 hours
