Dan yr Ogof Showcaves
Dan-yr-Ogof showcaves offer ten attractions all included in the one entry ticket, and there is plenty to see and do for all ages. There are 3 different showcaves including Dan-yr-Ogof, Cathedral Cave and Bone Cave each offering a unique underground experience.
In Dan-yr-Ogof showcaves you walk through the beautifully decorated passageways for just under 1 kilometre; in Cathedral Cave you walk through its enormous caverns, carved out millions of years ago, and at the end of this cave experience the excitement of walking behind the 40 feet high waterfalls that cascade around you in the ‘Dome of St Paul’s’, an atmospheric end to a truly wonderful cave; and in Bone Cave learn why 42 human skeletons were buried here, and how our ancestors used caves all those years ago. On site we also have one of the world’s largest collections of life-sized dinosaur models, ranging from the ever popular Tyrannosaurus Rex and Brachiosaurs, to the lesser-known Tsintaosaurus. There are over 200 models here – can you find your favourite dinosaur? The Shire Horse Centre offers the excitement of the 2 covered children’s play areas, the farm yard area, and why not make friends with the gentle giants – the Shire horses who are waiting to say hello. Include the Iron Age village, museum, and stone circles, and you have plenty to see and do for all ages, and for those who may want a break, there is our Coffee shop, and the Rock and Dinosaur shop to enjoy. Why not also consider Camping with us at Dan yr Ogof where you can throw your cares away for a while, as you sit and relax by the site’s river pathways.
