Visit Beer Quarry Caves for an hour long tour through the vast man-made complex of underground caverns, created 2,000 years ago. There are pillars of Beer Stone and halls of vaulted roofs, likened to a vast underground cathedral. You can learn about the methods used to quarry and deliver huge blocks of stone, the working conditions and hardships and dangers endured by the workforce, using only the light from candles.

Beer Stone has been used on many well-known buildings, including Exeter, Winchester, St Paul’s and Norwich Catholic Cathedrals, as well as Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London.

The caves are cool so it is recommended to bring warm clothing and arrive 10 minutes before tours start. There is free on-site parking, it is not suitable for wheelchairs, only assistance dogs are permitted underground and light refreshments and souvenirs are available. Under 5s are free. It is not usually necessary to book tours in advance.

  • Very peaceful Park

    The wildlife is stunning, we were visited by the ducks on a regular basis which was lovely. Our visit was very enjoyable and we will definitely be back in the future!

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • Best holiday ever!

    This is by far the best Holiday Park I have been to. The views are breath taking with easy access to the beach and nice coastal walks to West Bay. If you're looking for a relaxing holiday in a stunning location, then this is the place to come.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
