Fascinating and of definite interest to those living locally.. Organised by knowledgeable volunteers - it doesn't take long but is of definite interest and well worth a visit. Arrive early on the few days the caves are open to the public.

There's a Council car park quite near the tunnel entrance but it's not easy to spot. Otherwise multi storey near Everyman cinema or Morrisons (but beware 2 hour limit)

Hi, there’s space at the caves! Only cave that would be a problem is the one under the castle as that has steps - but is so worth doing!
