Recommended by Lindsay Monteath, Buckinghamshire
“This is a genuine treat and very inexpenive (family ticket around £15) My kids 9,12 & 14 totaly loved it. It's real, not a London dungeon type attraction created for tourists but no less thrilling. Your imagination runs riot while you edge your way along a labyrinth of eerie tunnels winding deep into the earth. Briliantly lit and seriously, seriously, creepy. Small displays & strange stories along the way add to the mystery of the place but its your mind that does all the work. This is fantastic especially for bored teens & robust under 10s. There is a lovely reasonably priced cafe and small gift shop to recover in afterwards where the delightful staff told us tales of strange noises & ghostly sightings in the tunnels. We returned home to find an unexplained shadowy figure on a photograph taken inside the cavern....but we'd been alone! ”
