Poole's Cavern & Country Park


Suitably scary for curious adventurers? Discover a magical cave, beautifully lit to find your way. Investigate every section as you wind your way along a safe pathway. With acres of outdoor space, play areas, adventures and activities Poole’s cavern is an ideal family day out! Don’t forget to let your Mum & Dad take a little break form the fun - healthy and indulgent hot and cold Cafe food for you all to try. The tour of Poole’s Cavern with our expert guides is a fun and interactive visit through the vast underground natural chambers. Stories of Stone age hunters, Roman soldiers, medieval outlaws and even a Queen are told on the journey through the cavern. Beautiful glistening crystals, echoing stream and cascades and bizarrely shaped stalactites and stalagmites fire the imagination. The Tour is suitable for all ages with paved walkways and handrails throughout. There are a total of 28 steps in groups of two to ten. Ask us about buggy access when you come.


There are caverns and caves dotted all over the British Isles and Ireland some big, some small, but they all share one massive similarity, the brilliant staff that work there and the stories that they all tell. Here at Pooles Cavern & Country Park, the staff really do know their stuff and no matter what questions I asked of them, they had an answer for all of them, this really impressed me and the tour guides really do enhance the overall experience here. The entrance fee isn’t extortionate and they have a very reasonably priced cafe adjacent to the visitor centre. I can’t finish without telling you about the Buxton Country Park which is located right next to the Cavern Visitor Centre. Complete with a ‘Go Ape’ this country park is really pretty and with around 40 hectares of woodland to work with, you could be busy walking all day, as you discover all the flora and fauna that help to make this country park one not to be missed.
