Closure update.

We’re thrilled that so many of you have already been in touch to enquire about when Royston Cave will be reopening. 


However, we’ve been assessing the situation closely and have made the decision to remain closed, for now. 

We understand that this will be disappointing for those who’d been hoping to visit us, but we’re working hard to ensure that we can still provide a great experience this Summer.


Soon, the hugely successful Royston Cave Virtual Experience will be back online and free to explore for now and for ever, including some incredibly exciting new updates for 2021, and we’ll be continuing to offer live virtual guided tours for those of you keen to gain a more in-depth understanding of this unique heritage site.


Plus, we’ll be adding even more content to our ever-growing website - more articles, more activities and more resources for the whole family, so even the youngest explorers can engage with our story remotely.


We’ll be reassessing the situation throughout the coming months and will provide updates accordingly.


Until then, keep discovering and keep being curious.

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 Templar, others by King James I and the Freemasons.
