Come with us to an underground hideaway of magnificent natural beauty. An ancient place, deep beneath the earth, where stalactites and stalagmites abound... You'll see fossilised shellfish. Turn out the lights and gaze up at the roof of the cave far above... There are Glow Worms, shining like stars overhead in a subterranean sky.
