Carlswalk Cave 

  • Booking Exclusive to your group

  • Location     Matlock Bath, Derbyshire

  • Price from  £45pp based on 3+ 

  • Minimum age 10yrs

  • Allow 2hrs 15min approx.


A fantastic cave for the more adventurous family or friends that wish to crawl around getting muddy and wet !!
Minimum age 10yrs old.
The entrance for some is a challenge in itself as you lower yourself down past tree roots, before following a shoulder width passage into the main cave where it widens up.

This cave is more physically demanding for adults, as you stoop through water up to the knees and mud!!

Generally exploring one passageway in and back out, its small formations, but with a couple of tighter crawls for those who want further challenge - may get slightly wetter as a result!!

We may explore other cave tunnels at the start of the session along the hillside - a head for heights required!

Why not try 
canoeing or abseiling??


We kit you up in over suits, helmets with lights and wellys.

A 10min walk to the start of the adventure!

A full safety briefing before entering each cave starting appropriately for each group.

Some short cave tunnels for a warm up to start the adventure to get used to the environment. These caves are just as much of an adventure to get to as the cave themselves.

Exploring the tunnels we e the many tunnels that gradually squeeze you and provide a good challenge to get through.

Some tighter sections are optional - but not all!!.

The main Carlswalk Cave is in and back out the same way.

We provide information about the cave, cave environment and its formations as we go.

Once finished its down to the car park to de-kit and get changed.
