My family and I visited Cheddar Caves and Gorge on Sunday. We paid £5 to park - ALL DAY! And we could use any car park! We then went to buy our tickets for £57.50 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. We talked to Christine who was the most pleasant and informative person, who told us exactly... More

Better than Wookey hole for sure if you are interested in the caves in particular. I'd advise booking on line as you get a bit of a discount but, importantly ignore the very misleading element of their website that states you have to do the whole lot in one day. You do need to collect your ticket on the day... More

I guess we were lucky, we found a parking space right outside Gough's cave, just up the hill, cost 5 GBP for the day. It was a gorgeous and hot day, it was nice to get out of the sun. They provide audio guides in the cave, and it was just long enough to be interesting and not get boring.... More

We had been to Wookey caves and hated it. However having been to both over the years gave Cheddar caves another go. Caves are well lit and you can amble round at your own pace with hand held audio commentary which was superbly done! The staff were friendly and helpful and informative. Well worth a visit !!!

Just go!!! It's a great day, £5 parking in any of the car parks and you only pay once. Tickets are alittle pricey at £18 for an adult and £55 for a family ticket but you do get entrance to all the caves and the gorge for 6 years with the same ticket. The caves are great with an over... More

We returned to Cheddar gorge after good memories from several years ago. Whats gone wrong? The area appears to be run down with numerous shops that we had previously visited now closed or under offer. Most of the shops don't open until 11.00. We spoke to one of the locals who said that things had gone downhill after a cable... More

Haven't been to Cheddar for more than 10 years and was shocked to find how commercialised the caves had become, after all it's just holes in the ground. Locals complain the price has killed off a lot of tourism, such a shame as the village is wonderful

We took the open-top bus and visited the museum and Cox's cave. It was OK but nothing special. The open-top bus ride was very short. You can drive through the gorge for free.
