Bristol Caverns

1157 Bristol Caverns Highway

 Bristol Caverns is one of the oldest and most beautiful attractions in northeast Tennessee and has thrived as one of Bristol's most visited tourist attractions.  A modern system of concealed, indirect lighting highlights the natural colors and beauty of the formations for your enjoyment.  The tours itself takes you to all three levels of the caverns - from Mayor Preston's Chamber in the upper section to the winding banks of the Underground River 180 feet below on the cavern floor.  Along the Underground River, you will be dazzled by dramatical displays of  formations reflected in the streams waters.  You can also peer over Lover's Leap, view the breathtaking Bridal Veil formation and stare in wonder at  the dazzling formations of Entrance Hall.  Don't forget to bring your camera!

A clean facility welcomes you and acts as a gift shop. The caverns are a small walk uphill before you get to the entrance. True walk isn't difficult for someone who can handle hills without problems. The caverns however contains a series of chambers accessible only by stairs. The caverns are well lit and easy to get around if you can handle steps. The chambers are mostly large and shouldn't present an issue with claustrophobia. The gift shop is typical for tourist attractions. Small offerings of stones minerals and tee shirts. Priced higher than a movie ticket but reasonable for the adventure.

Awesome tour of the caverns! We had the place to ourselves. Garrett was a very knowledgeable tour guide. Nice, clean picnic area too! I'm glad we took a detour on our way home!

Highly recommend! Beautiful formations. Took my 7 yr old granddaughter & she had a blast. Your guide great. I've been here many times. Cool temps feel great on hot day. There's walking & some stairs. Also visit Appalachian Caverns about 25 minutes away, but totally different!
