Dan yr Ogof Caves

The caves are located in Abercrave in the Swansea valley. I went here recently, and enjoyed the day.

At first I thought the admission charges  were a bit expensive, but you get to see quite a lot for your money.

There are three caves to visit, the Dan yr Ogof cave, a winding cave with beautiful formations accentuated by colourful lighting.

Cathedral cave, a massive cave discovered in 1963 which is brought to life by modern lighting and dramatic music. By the way, if you are looking for somewhere unusual to get married

then why not tie the knot in Cathedral cave?

It is the only cave I know that is licensed to conduct weddings.

The Bone cave is a small cave where 42 skeletons have been discovered, many bones dating back to the Bronze age over 3,000 years ago, animal bones have also been found, the oldest being of deer over 7,000 years old..

Travelling from the North

If travelling from the North, head towards Brecon. From Brecon, stay on the A40, travelling in the direction of Llandovery. You should leave the A40 just before Sennybridge (a left turn), looking for the brown tourist sign for Dan-yr-Ogof Showcaves. This takes you on to the A4067; from Sennybridge the journey time is approximately 15 minutes.

Head towards Hirwaun, and then take the A465 towards Glynneath. Follow this road down a long hill. At the bottom of the hill turn left (A4109), following the brown tourist signs for Dan-yr-Ogof Showcaves. At the traffic lights go straight ahead, stay on this road (for approximately 10 minutes) until you come to a ‘T’ junction and then turn right. This takes you on to the A4067; from here the journey time is approximately 5 minutes.
