Attraction Information:
Treak Cliff Cavern is an underground wonderland of stalactites, stalagmites, rocks, minerals and fossils. It is also Home to Blue John Stone, a rare form of Fluorite with beautiful colours.

Popular as an ornamental stone and mined for 300 years, one of the largest pieces ever found is still in situ called ‘The Pillar’. The Blue John Stone in Treak Cliff Cavern can be seen all around the walls and roof of the Witch’s cave.

The guided tour takes you deeper underground to see multi coloured flowstone adorning the walls of Aladdin’s Cave, and further on you can experience the wonder of the stalactites and stalagmites in Fairyland and the Dream Cave. The most famous formation is ‘The Stork’, standing on one leg.

Treak Cliff Cavern in Castleton is famous throughout the world for its unique and large deposits of Blue John stone, and houses some of the most beautiful cave formations found in the UK.
