New caving attraction opens in Lake District

Lake District feature simulates caving experience

A new type of attraction, based around indoor caving, has just opened in the Lake District.

Brockhole, the Lake District National Park visitor centre at Windermere, is now home to a brand new indoor attraction that invites explorers to dive into the darkness of the caving tunnels.

Brave the Cave is designed to be suitable for adults and children over five. Inside the attraction, cavers will also be tasked to retrieve a number of hidden items within their 45 minute adventure.

Sam Mason, general manager of Brockhole, said: “This is an exciting new attraction for Brockhole and we’re looking forward to opening the cave to the public this weekend. We know from our other attractions that children, and their parents, love an adventure so we can’t wait to see the reactions of our visitors when they Brave the Cave.”

He added: “Brave the Cave has been designed to recreate a real life caving experience with helmets and head torches being given out to cavers before their challenge begins. People visit the Lake District for an adventure and this attraction is a brilliant indoor experience for visitors.”

For under-five’s who are not yet old enough for the new attraction, Brockhole has also relocated and refurbished its pre-school play area.
