We booked to go caving here and it is one of the best decisions we have ever made. Phil our guide was perfect - even putting up with my jitters. The equipment is all explained easily and quickly and off you head for a great underground experience. So don't just visit the caves, book in for the caving too. We... More

Went as a big group, was interested to look around but once you've seen it once you've seen it! I realised after you pay for the cave, the rest of it is free anyway. Would go back again but just spend some time on the little street up to the caves, lots of little shops. Don't get me wrong it... More

Firstly I'd advice an early start- the caves open at 10am during summer months - as this place gets busy very quickly. Car parking is available in the village (you can buy tickets and take the open top double decker up through the gorge, weather permitting ) or park in spaces along the gorge road. Look out for parking attendant... More

Bought our tickets ahead of time with Bristol Tourism Bureau. Worked great. Drive there and Park and the double-decker bus takes you through the beautiful Gorge near the top. Then you walk back, touring the 2 caves, walks and shops. Charming villages. Had fun talking to the shop owners. Family loved the caves. Scenery was amazing. And yes, we bought... More

Love the outdoors? This is he place to go! Had a fabulous hike on both sides of the gorge and followed it up with a Ploughmans lunch and cider at the local pub! Great day!

Have been wanting to come here for years and it didn't disappoint. Having walked through the village the first place we went was Gough's Cave. We were each issued with a hand held commentary device so we could explore at our own pace. The cave just got better and better the further we went, and it was amazing to think... More

Nice day out with plenty to see and do. The bus tour was a good way to see all around the gorge and the commentry provided onboard was interesting. In the main cave it was good to have your own handheld commentry machine so everyone could walk through at their own pace. Although there are seating areas on the way... More

we diverted here to see what all the fuss was about and were surprised by its beauty, a little awe inspiring due to the sheer size of the cliffs, we also took pleasure in both the cheese shop and the "legbender" cider shop, worth the trip (about 25 minutes off the m5) cant really fault it except for the over...

Fantastic day out! Kids loved the bus ride, gough,s cave and the big climb up Jacobs ladder for the most amazing view of the mendips and surrounding area!! We didn't do the gorge top walk or the crystal quest so can't comment on that!! This Could be quite expensive for families but we used our tesco clubcard vouchers!!! Unfortunately we... More
