Poole’s Cavern and Solomon’s Temple

Set just outside the Peak District National Park, Poole’s Cavern will have you in awe at the beauty of this ancient cave. The limestone tunnels are surrounded by hoards of stalagmites and stalactites that have been forming over millions of years. The cave is an excellent addition to a day out and is something truly special that you won’t be forgetting anytime soon. You will be guided through the enormous cave by a professional and experienced guide who gives legends and history of the cave along your journey.
