A beautiful place to visit with lots of attractions and places to eat. The staff in the ticket office were very chatty and friendly, Christine's tour guiding on the bus tour was brilliant and the caves were excellent to walk around at our leisure. We are yet to do Jacobs Ladder or the walk but we've got 10 years yet!!... More

One of the finest natural features that the south west has to offer, unfortunately its pay all the way, to park, to take the bus, the visit the caves and even to gain access to public footpath. Most of the merchandise has little to do with the Gorge or Cheddar and must be a nightmare for family's on a budget.

I really enjoyed our day out at Gorge but did it using club card vouchers and I'm not sure I'd be happy paying some of the prices we saw. I found the best bit the 3 mile walk but after the 274 steps the kids were not impressed and even the wife start complaining 30 minutes into the walk. The... More

For this price we were given tickets listing 7 things to do: gouges cave, museum of prehistory, cox's cave, the crystal quest, lookout tower, cliff top gorge walk and gorge... More

We purchased the combined ticket and found this to be a very economical way of seeing all the attractions, Gough's cave is worth the price of the ticket alone, what an fantastic cave, thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We also walked the 3 miles of cliff-top unfortunately low cloud spoilt some of the views but a very invigorating walk anyway.
