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!

Our family had a great time here! We even brought along our 2 children, ages 6 and 7. The tour was very nice. You should definitely come in good walking shoes with good grip because, as with most caves, the ground was mostly wet and could potentially be slippery. Along with the fact that there are a decent amount of stairs to climb. It was very nice that they had handrails for most of the tour. It was very well lit so you could see the rock formations very well. The staff was friendly and the tour was quite enjoyable!

We did a detour while coming back from Tennessee. We thought to give it a try. It didn't fail us. We had a great time here. Though not so extravagant like Luray caverns, but its no less. The instructor was through enough. Its a visit worth for

We enjoyed the cavern and tour guide. If you have an imagination thru a lens you will enjoy this very much taking pictures. It truly is a wonderful experience.

No frills, but a worthwhile sight nonetheless. This modest unassuming local attraction is a nice place to stretch your legs, learn a little bit about underground caverns and climb a few steps all while seeing some pretty cool deep earth structures. The tour guide and staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyable visit.

Great place to visit!! My son loved it he is 8 years old and found everything the tour guide told him about the cave very interesting.
