Not cheap but enjoyable, my grandson really enjoyed the caves. Caves are accessible to most & not slippy. You can walk or drive up & down the gorge if you are not interested in paying for the caves, museum or open top bus tour. Plenty of shops & places to eat/drink, locally made ice cream, cheese & cider also available.

£18 for a ticket, each, includes everything. Both caves, museum, bus tour etc. Really enjoyed ourselves and thought the audio tour in the main cave - 'Goughs Cave' was informative and added to the experience. Lots of small and local tea rooms, ice cream shops and places to get food and drink. Parking £5 all day - no option for... More

Visited the caves using Tesco Clubcard Vouchers - very easy to exchange with all the benefits of paying by cash. Note - you need to pay £5 for any of the car parks but you can then park all day. Poured with rain most of the day but still able to wonder around the interesting and unique shops and obviously... More

visited here for the first time on about 20 year. Sadly hasn't changed a bit. So the shops / centre etc all looking a bit shabby. Having been to Longleat a few weeks before you can see where all the money goes. Having said that the cave was worth a visit as it was raining outside. Top tip we didn't... More

Long weekend in June, finally decided to book and drive from London. Very easy commute, shorter than I expected. Stayed at Premier Inn outside the Gorge area as too late to book boutique hotels in Cheddar, friendly staff and only needed to sleep there at night. The Gorge was OK, you would drive through it even without knowing you're in... More

Cheddar gorge is a beautiful spot. The gorge and caves are impressive and well worth a visit. Also look out for the water voles in the stream.

History of these caves, discovery of it and splendor of it all is not that easy to describe. Ticket to the attraction include bus tour of the small but wonderful town. Venture to the hill top tower is fun for people with energy. There are places to stop and rest. Do not expect too much at the top -- as... More
