Poole's Cavern & Country Park

Discover the amazing world beneath your feet at Poole’s Cavern in the High Peak hills of Buxton.

Join our expert guides who will unfold the stories and legends on a journey through beautifully illuminated caverns, sculpted over millennia by an ice age river.
Follow in the footsteps of cave dwellers, Romans and curious visitors, who, since the 16th century have explored and marvelled at the unique and spectacular stalactite and stalagmite crystal formations deep beneath the Peak District hills.
Above ground stroll along the woodland trails and wildflower glades of Buxton Country park to the hill top viewpoint of Solomon’s Temple, a Victorian folly with panoramic views of Buxton and the High Peak hills of Derbyshire. A great place to relax, picnic and enjoy the fresh air.
For the more adventurous challenge yourself at the Go Ape Tree top challenge with high wire and zip line excitement.
Refuel at the Café at the Cavern with locally roasted coffees, home-made cakes, light lunches and daily specials with vegan and GF options available.
