About Peak Cavern

Peak Cavern is also known as the "Devil's Arse" and is the most natural of Castleton's four limestone caves, since it has not been extensively mined for its lead deposits. It is the largest cave in the Peak District National Park and has the largest cave entrance in Britain. This cave was home to Britain's last endemic troglodyte population, who lived in this cave system until as recently as 1915. These people made rope and tourists can now see demonstrations of their rope making methods today. Touring the Peak Cavern is only possible within a group with a guide, it is not permitted to wander through the caves freely for health and safety reasons.

Peak Cavern is open daily throughout the year from 10am until 5pm (last tours 4pm). Tours take place every hour on the hour.
