XC has the largest indoor Caving system in Europe!
Caving has been with us for centuries, but as a leisurely pastime we have a Mr Martel to thank. This pastime has been practiced for the better part of a century and whether you are negotiating squeezes, sumps, stalactites or stalagmites one thing is for sure – you will be enjoying one of the more mentally demanding hobbies out there.
XC indoor organic caving system is one of the largest in the world! It measures 160m stretching through intricate twists and turns. Caving requires skilful manoeuvring of your body and will strengthen your core and upper body, as well as mentally stimulate your brain cells. The realistic cave passage way includes three chambers, and a separate cavern runs through the cave leading to the sheer drop of the high ropes course.
Whether you are a spelunker, a potholer or a caver we have just the thing for you. So don your harness, your hard hat and torch and check out the artificial caverns and catacombs, tunnels and passages. Caving parties are available on request.
All minors under the age of 18 must watch the XC Caving safety video with a parent or legal guardian, and fill in an online disclaimer before using XC facilities. Alternatively you will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian on your first visit.
There is a minimum age of 6 years old applied to all caving activities, however children under 8 years need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian through the caves.
XC is open 10am – 10pm, 7 days a week. Please call reception (01442 507100) for the specific opening times for each activity.

What our customers say
The caving was a particular hit.
I went to the XC with a group of children from the school I work at and the sign in process was easy, plus the high ropes and caving instructors were perfect. The kids loved it all.
