Fodor's Expert Review Peak Cavern

Castleton Cave

Caves riddle the entire town and the surrounding area, and in this massive example, rope making has been done on a great ropewalk for more than 400 years. You can still see the remains of the 17th-century rope makers' village. Some trivia to keep kids amused: the cavern was traditionally called the "Devil's Arse" due to the flatulent noise that water makes when draining out of the caves. Events held here include ghost tours and Christmas carols.
