Q. What is it really like underground?
A. The underground caverns and tunnels have quite dim lighting and there are a few tunnels where you need to duck to walk through. The floor is uneven and can be a little damp in places.
Q. What should I wear to visit King Arthur’s Labyrinth?
A. Whatever the temperature aboveground it’s always a cool 10ºC / 50ºF underground. Please wrap up warm and wear sensible footwear as the floor is uneven and damp in places.
Q. How far do you have to walk?
A. There is a short walk to the Labyrinth entrance. When you have sailed into the Labyrinth you then walk about ½ mile along gravel paths around the Labyrinth caverns and tunnels, stopping from time to time to hear the story based on ancient Welsh legends.
Q. What is the pace of the walk?
A. The walking pace, which is pre-set, is steady. Please keep up with the people in front of you so that the group keeps together. Please don’t attempt the visit if you cannot walk at a steady pace. If you find that you are struggling to keep up, please tell the Boatman and then walk at the back of the group. The Boatman will ensure that you do not get lost. Slow walkers may miss the beginning of the stories.
Q. I’ve seen pictures of visitors wearing helmets, do I have to wear one?
A. Yes, safety legislation insists that you wear a helmet, which will be provided, at all times while underground. The tunnels roofs are uneven and low in places but are generally around 6 ft high. The helmets protect your head from any contact with the roof.
Q. Are dogs allowed inside King Arthur's Labyrinth?
A. We regret that the underground Labyrinth trip is not suitable for dogs. However, dogs are welcome, on a short lead, into the outside areas of the Corris Craft Centre where we are based. Dogs are also allowed into the Visitor Information Centre, the King Arthur's Labyrinth reception area and our outdoor maze Lost Legends of The Stone Circle. They are not allowed into the food shop or cafe but there is an outside eating area. Dogs are allowed into the craft studios (with the exception of the Chocablock chocolate studio) at the discretion of the individual craftspeople.
Q. What about Guide Dogs?
A. Guide dogs are allowed underground at their owner's risk. Please talk to us beforehand about the conditions that your guide dog will encounter.
