‪I visited Blue John Cavern with my parents who are in their 80's. When entering the cavern you are presented with a steep flight of steps. The guide made sure my parents were OK and ensured the pace on the stairs was slow enough for my parents , one of my parents was struggling with the steps. Throughout the tour the guide was concensus of my parents age and made it as easy as possible for them he made my parents feel comfortable. This was appreciated and a credit to the guide, Sadly I can't remember his name. The guide was knowledgeable and always had an answer to visitors questions. The cavern itself was smaller than I would have liked but I would assume its down to health and safety issues as well as insurance. Blue John Cavern is worth a visit but ensure you plan to do something else for the remainder of the day assuming you can get parked. When we visited the car park was full of campervans whose owners clearly were not visiting.‬

‪We felt like we were imposing‬
العائلة • أكتوبر 2021
‪We were so looking forward to learning about Blue John and venturing into the caves. We knew we couldn't book online. We turned up on a windy half-term Tuesday. We were told we had to wait an hour in an outdoor waiting area. I inquired if there was a schedule so we could buy tickets (£45 discounted family 4 ticket) in advance and time our visit better. But no. The reception was very cold.
You really need a schedule and means to pre book. Otherwise if you expect customers to wait for an hour, at least provide shelter, toilets and basic facilities. So disappointed ‬

‪Overpriced and disappointing‬
أكتوبر 2021
‪We visited here last week and I have to say I was disappointed with the standard of the tour. The caves are quite spectacular but the guide was difficult to hear at all points and when his voice trailed off at the end of every sentence, you couldn't hear him at all. He didn't make an attempt to make the experience interesting, just reeled off information with no enthusiasm and then asked if there were any questions... when I asked at the end if there had ever been any accidents in the caves, was told that someone had had a heart attack after climbing the stairs!! I had to emphasise that I meant while the mining was taking place - not people on the tour! It was a little insensitive, especially as there was a lady who was taking a bit of extra time climbing the stairs... (she managed it fine, just a little slower - but he never once asked her if she was ok) The guide spoilt the tour really - we realised how different it could have been when we were at the mine tours at the Heights of Abraham in Matlock Bath. That guide was fun, informative, helpful and caring. Think our guide at Blue John needs another job that he likes! £30 for 45 mins - NOT value for money at all. Wish we had gone to one of the other mines around Castleton instead.‬

‪Overpriced‬
بمفردك • أكتوبر 2021
‪Very funny guide it was over priced for what we saw you do get £2 off from parking ticket, could have better lights to show rocks or bash a metal drum to eco the chambers or lamps to hold . been to other caves cheaper with more things inside.beware you have to bend down low to get though one part not suitable if you’re old no toilet at the cave steps are Steep handrails are there‬

‪Refused entrance to disabled person‬
العائلة • سبتمبر 2021
‪Absolutely shocking. I have disability and unable to wear face covering. Was refused entry to blue John cavern just now even though I told them about my medical exemption and presented them with exemption card. Was in three other caverns in the area previously with disability badge and had no problem. The tour guide of blue John cavern was not wearing mask, just a shield which was not covering his mouth. He was very rude as well as staff above the ground who by the way were not wearing masks either. I urged them to look on gov. UK website about medical exemption which they refused to do. Staff of blue John cavern is breaking the law and discriminate people with disabilities. If you look through the reviews, you will see that they are doing it on a regular basis. I will be taking the matter further.‬

‪Interesting place to visit‬
سبتمبر 2021
‪very informative, learnt a lot about the geology of the area thanks to the guide, Tony.
Would recomend stout footware as damp and could be slippy in places. 254 steps each way which could be a struggle for anyone without a basic level of fitness but we managed OK.‬

‪Fun trip down a deep mine‬
بمفردك • سبتمبر 2021
‪Based on some reviews here I set my expectations somewhat lower, however the visit surpassed my expectations. It's a mine - it's cold, dark damp and there are lots of steps - lots of them. I struggle with spiral staircases and while there are none of these here there are a few moments where you find yourself confined and looking up or down a long flight of steps- like I say I managed though so I hope it won't put people off. The tour guide was polite and it lasted about an hour-ish. Recommended for anyone interested in this sort of thing.‬

‪Overpriced and underwhelming‬
زوجان • أغسطس 2021
‪A very underwhelming tour. The tour guide seemed like they wanted to get the tour over with, it being the last tour of the day and it didn’t feel like he wanted to be there. Having visited other caves in the area I was expecting an amount of comedy from the tour guide because all the others had added a number of jokes to make the tour more fun. However, I didn’t not pick up on any. At one point the tour guide said to one person “I like you because you laughed at my jokes” my partner whispered “what jokes?” To me and I must admit I was at a loss too. At one point the tour guide even said to people, if you want to lower your masks below your nose, that’s fine by me. I was shocked by this and couldn’t understand his reasoning. If your nose is exposed you might as well just say “take your mask off”

The bland factual information was peppered around the nearly 250 stairs you have to walk down and we did manage to see a small vein of blue John (very underwhelming for the size of the cavern system). I was expecting a lot more from my parent’s descriptions from her childhood visiting the cavern. However, I think we realised she was thinking about one of the other caverns. It’s well worth doing your research and booking one of the other blue John caverns (which you can do on their website unlike this one).

Compared to other cavern tours I went on in the area this one felt overpriced and underwhelming. I would not recommend it.‬
