Caves and Caverns

The Lake District is one of the most mountainous areas of England and contains the highest peak in the country. As such, it is a haven for caves and caverns with some cave systems literally criss-crossing the mountains, deep underground. Caves provide many things for different people. Professional cavers don head torches, wet suits and often breathing apparatus before making their way through long caves. If this activity sounds a little off putting there are also guided tours through various caves that don't require you getting wet or squeezing through any tiny wholes. This is a great family activity.
