Although the Main Chamber is floodlit, a torch will add to your fun, enabling you to explore nooks and crannies. Throughout the Main Chamber are strategically placed notice boards, which enable the visitor to explore the cavern without the need for a guide.
Photography is allowed down the hole so do bring a camera, but bear in mind it is very damp underground so care must be taken to avoid damage to electronic equipment .

Parties.
Large parties are not a good idea at GG, they just cause long queues. Please keep party numbers to a max of 10.
