Our guides will take you on an hour long tour through the vast man-made complex of underground caverns with their mighty halls of vaulted roofs and pillars of Beer Stone which have been likened to a vast underground cathedral.
See for yourself the methods used to quarry and deliver the huge blocks of stone, the working conditions, the hardships endured and the dangers faced daily by the work-force using only the light from a flickering tallow candle and you may never again see a famous building with the same eyes.
The caves are cool so please bring warm clothing and it’s best to arrive at least 10 mins before the tours start.
Useful Quarry Facts
June 2019 – Candlelit Evening Tours. As last years candlelit tours were a great success we will be running them again sometime in June 2019. An ideal opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of the quarrymen’s working conditions. It will be by booking only and details will be announced later.
