Royston Cave 2022: A Year of Discovery

Royston Cave 2022: A Year of Discovery

The start of the new Cave season kicked off last month with a sell-out opening weekend.

This month we’re diving into the world of conservation looking at the issues that affect Royston Cave, how they erode the carvings and what we can do to stop them. From water to microbiology, gnat larvae and the cave’s unique microclimate, we’ll be releasing conservation reports and getting all forensic to tell the story of the cave’s battle with erosion.

We’re also overhauling our online Activities zone with even more ways to have fun from home. Have a go at solving puzzles and crosswords, get creative with new arts and crafts projects and download our new and exclusive Royston Cave bookmarks to print from home, so your current read can receive a mysterious makeover too.

Plus, this month, we’ll be launching tickets for our first new event of the year! Introducing Summer Solstice at Royston Cave! Thought by some to be situated on the Mary and Michael Ley lines, come and experience the longest day of the year at one of Britain’s most unique sites and soak up the energy of the cave. No formal tours, just a quiet, magical space to exist and breathe and shut away the outside world. Tickets go on sale from 24th May! And, of course, tickets are still available for tours throughout 2022.

We’ll be open every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday until 25th September. Online booking only. For tickets and visitor information, visit
