Was closed for maintenance but looked very cavey - 4/5 stars. Could have been a 5 star cave if it had been open, pictures looked cavelicious

We had a really great time here! We had a guided tour from a lovely woman named Jules. She and the other staff there were so friendly and knowledgeable about the cave and its history. Highly recommend this experience...it was well worth the ticket price!
Been to lots of caves but this one is unique. It's in limestone which makes it a dry cave and temp inside is the same all year round ( I think 16 degree). The tour guide are very informative and passionate about the cave. Not to be missed
