What we offer on a school trip
Poole's Cavern is a spectacular natural cavern in the heart of Derbyshire's High Peak. Our expert guides will escort your group on a journey back in time through chambers once used as a medieval robbers hideout, Roman shrine and Bronze Age shelter.
Back above ground explore the beautiful country park woodlands and follow the discovery trail to Grin Low Hill and Solomon's Temple viewpoint. Learn how the land has been used from a site of ancient ritual to limestone quarrying, agriculture, recreation and conservation. Discover the creatures and plants that live in the woods.
