About the event

This is a gentle walk with one steep section up the hill. It is not recommended for prams or pushchair. However, it is suitable for children as young as three. There is guided tour of a historical cave. Details can be found on their website. Click here.

Usually, the tour can be booked on the spot. We will try but do not promise to get the tour. It will depend on the queue and consent of the walkers on the spot. If we did go for the Cave tour, please note that the temperature inside is good few degrees lower than the outside temperature. It may be advisable to keep an extra layer handy just in case.

Parking is paid (not free).

It is highly recommended to take a picnic with you and enjoy yourselves at the hilltop when you have a panoramic view all around.
