Attraction Information

Dig deep on a self-guided tour of Carnglaze Caverns - home to the history of the mining industry, faeries and a subterranean lake. There’s no turning back now!

You’ll explore three underground caves surrounded by 6.5 acres of lovely, wooded hillside. Make your way down a steep flight of steps on a self-guided tour and marvel at your surroundings - the inner caverns have cathedral like proportions and are just as beautiful, especially when you reach the famous underground lake with its crystal blue water.

The journey will teach you loads about this former slate mine where the workers' skills were essential to survival this far below ground. After making like a mole beneath the earth, follow the Woodland Walk or wander through the Terrace Garden and up to the Enchanted Dell - where faeries have supposedly been spotted!

  • Explore three stunning caverns 60m below ground
