We had a trip out today using our clubcard vouchers and were very impressed by the caves. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our two boys throughly enjoyed the audio tour which they haven't usually bothered with on other days out. The lit areas showing the rock formations were absolutely stunning. Cox's cave was also a fab experience,... More

On our way back from Cornwall, my husband, stepson (4 1/2) and I took a brief detour to Cheddar. I wish that we had planned this better and had done a night stop, as there was plenty to see and the town was absolutely adorable. As it was, we stopped for about two hours and we just did the main... More

Was in the area recently on holiday and discovered Cheddar gorge was dog friendly so visited. Although entry can seem a bit expensive at almost £19 per adult you get a good day out for your money, and are helping to preserve the caves. You can also revisit most of the attractions as many times as you like over a... More

Walked Cheddar Gorge and Jacobs ladder. We also went in the caves which I found amazing. The reflections in the waterfall were very good. Only complaint is we pad full price for a ticket and were told certain things were out of season but our ticket would be valid for those In the summer. If this is the case have... More

Visited a few days ago with my partner and 5 year old and really enjoyed it. I used Tesco vouchers so did not have to actually physically pay, which helped! We found free parking (which was good as having read other reviews people had complained they had to pay). First we visited Gough's cave, which was really interesting. We all... More

My 12 year old daughter described Gough's cave as cool! The audio guide was a great companion and there was lot to interest is there. Cox's cave is much much smaller but fun and the museum interesting. The ladies in the gift shop are very friendly but please could you sell stamps if you sell postcards?

Magnificant view from the top and then hiked the 3 mile ardous, muddy and sometimes steep and treacherous path that we were sold.Halfway along the route the path went steeply down to the public road mear the top of the gorge... So had we started the... More

We were only there a few hours, on a day trip from Bath, and we didn't have time for everything our ticket allowed, so we had a quick browse in the cheese shop and headed up the steps to the gorge walk. The cheese is delicious but can only be bought in pieces too big to be eaten on the... More

The caves are great, but the prices are a bit too much, especially when you have a family. The ticket includes other attractions though. The 'owner' charges a fiver to park anywhere along to gorge, even when we wanted to just stop for an ice cream. Best to use the pay /display at the bottom of the gorge instead.
