CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Following latest developments, we have taken the inevitable decision to officially close Royston Cave and postpone the opening of this year’s season until further notice. This closure also includes all private tours and affiliated events, including those organised by third parties.

 

We will be monitoring government advice and will keep you updated when things change, but our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff. We thank you for your understanding, patience and continued support.

 

Although we won’t be able to share the magic of Royston Cave with you personally, we will continue to improve efforts to help you connect with the cave’s history digitally, by sharing its stories on our website and social media, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

 

Since its discovery in 1742, Royston Cave has welcomed thousands of curious visitors to its doors each year and we look forward to welcoming many more again soon. Until then, I hope that you and those close to you keep healthy and safe.

WHAT WAS THE CAVE USED FOR?

Royston Cave is an enigma. No records of its age or purpose exist. Some theories suggest it was used by the Knights Templars, others by King James I and the Freemasons.
