Poole's Cavern & Country Park
Discover the ’First Wonder of the Peak’ in Buxton
Poole’s Cavern has attracted curious visitors to this underground treasure house in the heart of Derbyshire’s High Peak spa town of Buxton for thousands of years.
Take a journey back in time with our expert guides, explore the vast Limestone caverns and discover how crystal Stalactites and Stalagmites have lined the chambers over millions of years. Come face to face with our cave dwelling ancestors in our new archaeology exhibition and have a go at ‘digging the past’ yourselves.
A wide range of souvenirs, books, local produce, crystals and jewellery are available in the Rock Shop. Taste the Peak in the Cavern café with meals or snacks, cakes and coffee served all day. We also have picnic areas and safe play area for children and toddlers.
Back above ground explore the beautiful country park woodlands and complete your day with a stroll to Grin Low Hill and Solomon’s Temple viewpoint. Or for a more extreme experience try the forest High wire course on GO APE.
