The gorge itself is stunning, the town, very tacky and without any decent shops, if you intend to go for a walk, park higher up the gorge where it is free and take any of the paths upwards, you can walk all the way to the bottom and down Jacobs ladder, unfortunately you can't pay to enter individual caves, its...

It was many years since we have been here. Some parts we remembered, others not. We parked at the bottom of the village £3.50 for 24 hoursbut you get £1 off per person visiting the caves! It was raining hard so the caves were an obvious choice. We bought our tickets, £18.50 - £1 and this ticket lasts up to... More

A good day out great caves and lots of things to see and do, if you park at the bottom of the Gorge you can get the bus tour up the Gorge which then drops you off at the first cave then you can make you way down the Gorge to the next cave and pop into the various small... More

Cheddar Gorge is amazing also and the short bus trip is a good place to start off your experience. Amazing views from inside Gough's cave with a good audio commentary available. Must be seen. Jacob's Ladder well worthwhile too. It's not the cheapest day out and a £5 charge to park the car in addition to the ticket price was... More

I have to admit the landscape itself is beautiful. Luckily, i went there when it was sunny. If you just wanna enjoy the gorge/canyon is free, but if you park your car, you need to pay £5 all day or you can park in council parking which costs £3.5 all day. Apparently, this beautiful natural place is managed and owned... More

So much to do at Cheddar Gorge.Lots of shops to buy merchandise,the favourite has to be the cheese shop,the cave-aged cheddar is delicious!The caves are very interesting and the audio guides very informative.It's a very big hike up 274 steps to the top but as there are several points at which you can rest and catch your breath it's well...

Firstly it you want to enter the caves or museum you will have to pay regardless of whether you are a national trust member of not as it is owned by longleat. I think a few people have been caught out by this. Parking is 5 pound for the day or free if you can find an empty unmarked area... More

We visited Cheddar Gorge whilst on holiday in Somerset , it is without a doubt a stunning place to visit myself and my 12 year old son enjoyed the caves unfortunately my daughter didn't like them. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

I came here on Sunday with my partner on the way home from Paignton. After driving around for twenty minutes we finally managed to park opposite the ticket centre. Firstly we headed for a coffee and then proceeded to the shops. Lovely little shops around, especially the cheese shop! Although, my favourite was the Christmas shop! I loved being able... More
