Amazing rocks and enscarpment

We were so impressed with the gorge and the rock formations here. Other parts of the cheddar gorge area seem to be over commercialised from the attraction pamphlet that we saw... read more

The kids (2 and 5) loved it and I really loved being in there almost alone too.... The Gorge is stunning and super-tall, and I took our motorhome up and down it, snapping photos as we went.

We were so impressed with the gorge and the rock formations here. Other parts of the cheddar gorge area seem to be over commercialised from the attraction pamphlet that we saw and we decided to avoid them, however, the town of Cheddar, at the bottom was largely closed up and there was only one place open to get something to...

Cheddar caves and gorge are well worth a visit. You can take a short drive through the beautiful gorge and then visit the fascinating caves.

On first sight I was bowled over with the stunning scenery. A quaint little village with huge character . We first entered the largest of the caves , having never experienced anything of this nature before I was in awe . You are given a telephone like device to listen to the history behind the caves in both adult and... More

We visited on a misty day in November so the views of the Gorge were somewhat limited so we opted to visit the caves and thoroughly enjoyed it. We first visited Gough's Cave and this cavern is breathtaking with superb formations, we followed this up with a visit to Cox's Cave and the Crystal Quest. Cox's Cave was interesting (but... More

We decided to go to Cheddar for the day as it's been some 20 years since we last visited. I realise that the Town is quiet I November but I was very disappointed to see so many run down buildings with several businesses permanently closed. We walked through the Gorge whistle is as spectacular as we remember. We enjoyed a... More

Had an amazing time in Cheddar when I went with my other half and obviously Cheddar Gorge was on the must do list. We ended up going on the wetest and windiest day imaginable but still managed to have a really great time! I think it's pretty reasonable for the money you pay. Especially as you can go back within... More

As our trip in England wound down we decided to make a day trip out west and see Cheddar Gorge and the caves. We found the town of wells and followed the signs from there. My recommendation is park in the lots after all the stores and in the gorge it self, there were busses and ample parking and there... More

Not been to Cheddar for decades, so now more commercial, but more visitor friendly. Audio guide was very good and there was more to see than I expected. Complimentary coffee and cake at Costa followed.

This was our first visit to Cheddar and the caves did not disappoint. We got in for free as I cashed in our Tescos vouchers, which gave us a ticket that not only let us into the caves but allowed us on the open top bus and up Jacobs ladder. The caves are amazing, child and dogs did not want... More
