First stop is the Dan-yr-Ogof cave, discovered in 1912 by two brothers. You enter through a couple of sets of doors designed to keep the temperature and then follow the path through the cave, there are lights along the way and stalactites and stalacmites everywhere. There are also pools and rivers, it is beautiful and goes on for miles. You exit out the same way and continue on the the Cathedral Cave discovered in 1953.
The lake is fed by two large waterfalls and the noise of the water is wonderful, you can even walk between them and surprisingly not get wet ! Then it's on around the dinosaurs, hundreds of life size models all with name tags and informtation, this is the bit the kids love best. After that there is a climb up some steep steps to Bone Cave, so named as there have been 42 human skeletons found there, most dating back 3000 years to the Bronze Age. You need to put on a hard hat and bend down (not good if you have a bad back) and then enter the cave. Once inside you can stand up and view the spectacular exhibit and listen to the hostory around the cave.
Once you've finished with the caves then you can visit the Shire Horse Centre and for children there is Barney Owl's playground, which is inside a converted barn. The Showcaves have something for everyone and are amazing.
