2. And having way more fun looking at the tacky dinosaur models than you probably should.

5. Especially to reach Bone Cave.

Only to find a small, dimly-lit display backed by a weird mixtape of animal noises.

7. Which also requires you to wear a hardhat because of the goddamn super low roof of the pathway.

Tbh, it isn't worth the trek for what is essentially just a couple of really shitty mannequins in a small alcove.

8. But something that is worth the walk: the main cave.

The exciting cave.

10. And oh god, it's just so damn beautiful inside.

11. In spite of the annoying narration of "the Morgan brothers".

14. Then there's the famous Cathedral Cave.

Which kind of made you question what type of person would get married in a cave, until you saw the place yourself and realised that it was actually kind of romantic.

15. With a waterfall you ALMOST have to walk straight under.

16. The gift shop was full of the usual tacky Welsh gifts, but also fake stones and dinosaur stuff.

Fake gold in particular is always a winning souvenir.

17. As an added bonus, you got tickets to the horse stables just down the road for some reason.

18. Which is surprisingly pretty awesome with its mix of alpacas, emus, and super-wooly sheep.

19. And after a day of cave exploring, you'd have a new appreciation for the surrounding mountains.
