Caving is inclusive to all genders and levels of experience, and we welcome enquiries from those with a disability regarding the accessibility of Caving. Caving is open to members of the local community and beginners who will be in the safe hands of the club’s experienced cavers. The club runs three types of trips: introductory trips and more advanced sport caving trips and exploratory trips, taking place at least every second weekend during term time, as well as an overseas expedition in July. 

Our Club | Oxford University Caving Club

Oxford University Caving Club is about caving and potholing.

Is there a difference? Not really; “caving” tends to imply going into underground passages more-or-less horizontal, and “potholing” going up and down passages more-or-less vertical, but most cave systems have bits of both. “Caving” will do for both.

The club has many very experienced cavers; if you choose to try caving with us you’ll be in good hands. You don’t have to be fit or fearless: just willing to give it a go.
