This is not just one attraction but actually ten, all included in the one entry ticket, and believe us, there is plenty to see and do for all ages.
The 3 different caves Dan-yr-Ogof, Cathedral Cave and Bone Cave each offer a unique underground experience. In Dan-yr-Ogof you walk through the beautifully decorated passageways for just under 1 kilometre; in Cathedral Cave you go through its enormous caverns, carved out millions of years ago, and at the end of this cave experience the excitement of walking behind the 40 feet high waterfalls that cascade around you in the ‘Dome of St Paul’s’, an atmospheric end to a truly wonderful cave. Then there’s Bone Cave. You learn why 42 human skeletons were buried here, and how our ancestors used caves all those years ago.
They also have their own Jurassic Empire with one of the world’s largest collections of life-sized dinosaur models, ranging from the ever popular Tyrannosaurus Rex and Brachiosaurs, to the lesser-known Tsintaosaurus. There are over 200 models here so we’re sure you’ll find your favourite.
The Shire Horse Centre offers the excitement of the 2 covered children’s play areas, the farm yard area, and why not make friends with the gentle giants – the Shire horses who are waiting to say hello. If that wasn’t enough, there’s the Iron Age village, museum, and stone circles. Then if you need a little break, and we here always do, there’s the cafe and the Rock and Dinosaur shop to enjoy.
