The Dan-yr-ogof Showcaves were discovered in 1912, and form the largest system of subterranean caverns in northern Europe.
At over 10 miles long, Dan-yr-ogof cave is the longest show cave in Britain, with a warren of caverns framed by stalactites and limestone deposits.  

At 150 ft long and 70 ft high, Cathedral Cave is a hugely impressive, and is reached via a series of spookily lit caverns.

Lastly, visit Bone Cave, where 42 human and many animal skeletons were found. Elsewhere on site there’s also a short dry ski slope and a pony trekking centre.
