Entry is quite pricy, but does include a lot. The caves are stunning, with amazing geological formations in them. The bus ride is very enjoyable, with an interesting guide. We found the staff extremely helpful. We dive a large motorhome, and parking can be a problem, so I emailed them the night before. One of the guides replied, with exact... More

The caves are about what I imagined them to be. It was cool to see, but for the price you would have to be interested in it. If you think it might be interesting, you may be underwhelmed.

At 57 pounds for a family it was vastly over priced and very tired looking, didn't bother going in despite going their specifically to see the caves

Visited for the day. Came here 40 ish years ago when at school and has changed immensely. Quite expensive but absolutely worth it! The caves are stunning! Mother Nature is amazing.... Kids loved it, so did we. Bought locally made cheese and cider... yum! All I would say is pick the right day, we had great weather and it made... More

High charge to visit and what was on show was rather dull to be honest. The Crystal Maze cave further down the road was a fraction of the size but was more fun. Needs some fresh ideas and interaction to bring it upto speed perhaps?

The shops are great - expensive for the caves as all in - you can't just do one thing. The drive up the Gorge was spectacular - get out and have a little ramble!

I recently visited cheddar gorge, thought the caves were great and lots of nice little shops to nose round.. I would say it's quite pricey however once you've paid for your parking too. We thought the gorge walk would be a good idea, started well but I think there needs to be more signs or at least clearer ones a... More

A very good attraction which included access to all the caves and an open top bus tour of the gorge. You do get a very well put together audio guide to escort you on your walks. but with just the 2 of us with parking it was over £40 for what was a little more than 2 hours walk. I... More

Went here while staying up in Weston super Mare at the start of the Easter holiday. Used to go when I was younger so wanted to take my daughter (4 years old). She absolutely loved it and was really interested in all the things in Gough's cave and loved 'saving the world' in Cox's cave. The museum was brilliant as... More
