Venue type: Indoor

Stump Cross Caverns is one of Britain's premier show caves, located in Nidderdale on the border of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. They are a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) and is home to some amazing natural formations.

Tour the lit caves safely with kids and explore the ancient rock features close up: an awe inspiring geological experience that'll have the kids turning into rockhounds if only for the duration.

After they have toured, visitors are welcomed to sit and watch the 20 minute presentation in their little theatre which is all about the creation of the caves. Everyone learns best, especially kids, when they are already interested in something so it's great time to back up the experience with a bit of knowledge while they're still stunned by the sights.

Pushchairs and baby back carriers are not permitted due to restricted access. Helmets are provided for your safety and must be worn at all times. Access to the cave is via 65 steps, so although there are hand rails on both sides those with limited mobility or teeny tiny legs need to give it due consideration!
