Castleton is one of England's most fascinating villages and has everything for the visitor, a real tourist Mecca. With four show caves, five pubs, souvenir shops and a museum there is plenty to keep the tourist occupied. The A625 road from Sheffield once ran to Chapel en le Frith but now terminates in Castleton after the Mam Tor section was abandoned due to constant landslides. Light vehicles can still travel to Chapel en le Frith via Winnats Pass, a steep gorge which is home to several caves. Cave Dale as it's name suggests also has a number of small caves.
Dominating the village is Peveril Castle, which is located over the entrance to the largest of Castleton's show caves, Peak Cavern. Originally called "The Devil's Arse", it's name was Bowdlerised for a visit by Queen Victoria but in more recent years the proprietors of the cave have reverted to using it's cruder name. The tourist section of Peak Cavern gives a small insight into this vast underground system which is mostly available only to properly equipped cavers.
