Dan Yr Ogof Caves

Upper Swansea Valley, near Abercrave, Swansea, Wales

Description

There are ten attractions included on the one ticket. The 3 different caves Dan-yr-Ogof, Cathedral Cave and Bone Cave each offer a unique underground experience, and have been voted “Britain’s Finest Natural Wonder”. In Dan-yr-Ogof you walk through the beautifully decorated passageways for approximately 1 kilometre, in Cathedral Cave you can explore the enormous passageways, 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. In Bone Cave discover the story behind the 42 human skeletons that have been excavated from this site.

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 farmyard area, and 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.
