Although official restrictions have ended, to keep our visitors, staff and volunteers safe, we ask that you do not visit us if anyone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19, or a positive test in the last 5 days.

Please also maintain social distancing during your visit. We recommend wearing a face covering in our visitor centre and caves and making use of the hand sanitiser stations around the building.
