Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I take photographs?

Unless otherwise stated, photography is permitted in all caves and galleries. Images/recordings should be for private use only. If you upload to social media, please be sure to tag us!

Q. Is there a picnic area?

Crags Meadow is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic. A number of picnic tables, including wheelchair accessible tables, are situated in the shady side of the meadow, near to the pagoda.

Please remember to take all litter away with you, as we do not have bins on site.

Q: Are you dog friendly?

Yes of course! Our gorge and meadow area, as well as our cafe balcony, are dog friendly; all we ask is that they are kept on a lead as it is partly public bridleway at the gorge and horses regularly use the path to hack through. We have plenty of poo bags at reception, and we politely request you clean up after your dog.

Q. Can I climb on the crags?

Sadly we cannot allow our crags to be climbed on. Due to their unique historical importance, these are scheduled ancient monuments and the site is a geological SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and as such it is one of the most protected areas in the UK. In addition to this the rocks are home to a number of rare species. Finally not only are the rocks unsafe but the land above the crags is not managed by Creswell Heritage Trust and should any visitors access this area they would be trespassing on private property.
