Poole's Cavern & Country Park

I+

Poole’s Cavern is found deep beneath the limestone hills of the Peak District in the historic town of Buxton.

Discover an underground world which once echoed to the roar of an ice age river which carved this vast cave system and how raindrops have created spectacular and strange crystal formations. 
 
Visited since the Stone age and regarded as a 'Wonder of the Peak District' since the 17th century, visit today with our expert guides along comfortable walkways and experience a truly unique world. 
 
Above ground complete your day and take a stroll through Buxton Country Park, 100 acres of beautiful sheltered woodland.
 
Way marked trails with information points and new forest sculptures (meet Charlie the Limeburner) lead to Solomon’s Temple viewpoint with commanding views of the Peak District from the summit of Grin Low at 1400 feet above sea level. Explore, picnic, play and soak up the clear air.
