Speedwell Cavern and Peak Cavern in Castleton, Hope Valley

Speedwell Cavern can be found at the foot of Winnats Pass just outside Castleton.  This is not for the fainthearted or claustrophobic..there is a stairway descent of 105 steps, then a boat ride through the  underground canal.  It is very cold, so always be  prepared with coats!  An amazing boat ride which opens into a network of caverns and underground rivers.


Peak Cavern is in the village of Castleton.  Accessed through a riverside walk passing miners cottages and  opening out into a stunning limestone gorge with the ruins of Peveril Castle high above.   Within the entrance there are the remains of ancient communities.   Each year there are Christmas carol concerts held in the entrance chamber with mince pies and mulled wine to warm your bones!  Tickets are available, but book as soon as you can.
