This weekend treat was worth every penny get your tickets on line for a discount. The amount to do is huge from the caves to museum information to Jacobs ladder which was exhausting but worth the climb. The Gorge walk is breath taking but get a proper map & take some care some parts dangerous under foot in wet weather... More

Was a great day out, took our time listened to all the commentary and history (unlike many who dashed through). Was quite quiet when we went and very pleasant day out. Just a shame about Costa Coffee having to get involved and having to walk through the coffee shop to get out of the cave.......use the tea house further down... More

This is a beautiful place to visit in Somerset, the Caves are fantastic and don't think over priced either to enter. The cheddar gorge itself is something else and if you've never visited it's a must, the village itself is small but defo a full day out with all the small shops to call at

Me and my boyfriend visited on the 28th September and we had a fantastic day. The Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Our lunch was very tasty and not too overpriced. We spent all day there and we absoloutely loved it. Luckily the weather cooperated with us so we managed to go on the bus and our guide was fantastic.... More

We went to Chedder specifically to walk around the top, so we parked up at the top of the Gorge on the left & walked up on the left. It's a bit steep and in places could be quite a scramble. However, once you are up it is quite nice walking. It's probably best not to look down if you... More

Masses to see and do and all very well presented and reasonably priced - none of the over-priced and over-indulgent "experiences" you'll find elsewhere i.e. Wookey Hole. Thoroughly recommended to all ages. We visited as a couple this time but will take the children next time as they'll have a great day out too.

This was part of a surprise weekend away that my wife arranged and which I throughly enjoyed. There are numerous parts to the entrance price - Gough’s Cave, Museum of Cheddar Man, Cox’s Cave & The Crystal Quest (where my wife saved the world, lol), The Lookout Tower, Cliff-top Gorge Walk and the Gorge Open-top Bus Tour. Stopping for pleasant... More

Cheddar Gorge is a beautiful quaint place. When we visited it wasn't to busy - which was great. We got there early and everything was shut until opening - but at least we had no problem parking. It is quite pricey for a family (2 adults and 3 children) and it would of been great to be able to buy... More

As a group of late twenty something's we were looking for something to do in the area, so headed to check out Cheddar Gorge and Goughs cave for the afternoon. We were unsure as many reviews had said it was pricey, however we entered the cave at 3.30 on a late deal for £10 per person. It was certainly worth... More

A top family attraction for all ages. It's a must. The view of gorge is breathtaking. The caves were interesting and the bus tour was fab!
