We understand that some people don’t wish to commit to a full day private booking and might prefer to try an activity in a shorter, budget way first. Our public activities are ideally suited for people looking to jump into a pre-planned activity at a certain level and just experience it. The discounted public activities are only available on limited dates. Select an activity below to see full information.
As a guide, our “Discover” activities tend to be shorter introductory sessions, and the “Adventure” activities are more challenging or physical sessions.
Public activities for 2020
You’ll visit one of the Peak District’s amazing caves & explore deep into the 350-million year old landscape, learning about geology and having a unique adventure. This activity is suitable for most ages.
Take a journey back in time to experience the history and geology of one of the Peak District’s abandoned mines. You’ll spend time learning how the miners extracted the valuable ore and experience some challenges along the way. Suitable for most ages.
Take to the hills for an adventure on & under the rocks of the Peak District. On a visit to one of the stunning local gritstone escarpments, you’ll take a journey scrambling up, crawling under and wriggling through the ancient landscape. Suitable for both children and adults.
A step up in challenge from the Discover Caving trips, the Adventure trips are aimed at those who might have caved before, or who simply like the idea of trying something harder. Suitable for older children and adults.
Vertical Adventure trips combine the challenges of climbing and abseiling with the experience of cave exploration to give a wonderfully varied day out. Suitable for older teenagers and adults who are up for a physically demanding activity.
