SDC Colour Museum
This is the only museum of colour in the UK. It is divided into two distinct sections. These are entitled the World of Colour and the Colour and Textiles Gallery.
The World of Colour contains various exhibits that explain the properties of colours. There are experiments that show how different colours are perceived by different people and why some people and animals see the same colour completely differently.
The Colour and Textiles Gallery covers the history of colour, tracing it back to the early dyes used by the ancient Egyptians. The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm. Admission is free.
Peak Cavern is also known as the "Devil's Arse" and is the most natural of Castleton's four limestone caves, since it has not been extensively mined for its lead deposits. It is the largest cave in the Peak District National Park and has the largest cave entrance in Britain. This cave was home to Britain's last endemic troglodyte population, who lived in this cave system until as recently as 1915. These people made rope and tourists can now see demonstrations of their rope making methods today. Touring the Peak Cavern is only possible within a group with a guide, it is not permitted to wander through the caves freely for health and safety reasons.
Peak Cavern is open daily throughout the year from 10am until 5pm (last tours 4pm). Tours take place every hour on the hour.

South Lakes Wild Animal Park
Since it opened in 1994 this zoo park in the south of Cumbria has been involved in major conservation and animal breeding programmes.

There are demonstrations and hands-on exhibitions given by the keepers. The park is home to both the Sumatran Tiger Trust and the Wildlife Protection Foundation. A highlight of feeding time is the climbing of tall poles by the tigers to reach their meat, a device to keep them exercised. The park has a cafe serving fast food, a gift shop and a large picnic area.
