Cheddar Gorge is a spectacular location well worth a visit. Goughs Cave was fascinating & it was good to tour on your own although the audio tour was slightly childish. The bus tour gave a good view but was quite short & we did the clifftop walk & lookout tower which gave us some good views over the Somerset countryside... More

I have been visiting this place since childhood, it is unique and a good day out. the ticket cost is actually reasonable but it is a shame that it has become even more commercial since I was a kid and they just seem offer an all inclusive ticket instead of maybe just one for the caves for people who cannot...

We were travelling back to Cumbria from France, and detoured from our normal route, intending to take in Stonehenge and if time allowed, a drive through Cheddar Gorge, as my wife and grown up children had never been. We left Stonehenge without seeing it, as the cost of admission for a brief visit was prohibitive, but our visit to Cheddar... More

Went with two under 10's, two 40 year old parents, and the 60+ year old grandparents. We had a great day, the caves are interesting, but the highlights were watching all the rock climbers and the cliff top walk, beautiful day out! And great value with good old Tesco vouchers!

Visited the caves over the weekend and I would say they were spectacular. The gift shops and tea rooms are very quaint. If you go to Somerset this visit is a must.

There is so much to see and do here. It is one of nature's most beautiful creations and will fill a day! If you don't get around everything in a day though, your ticket is valid for 10 years from the date of purchase so plenty time to get your value for money!

I went as a young child with my family and I loved the geography of the gorge and the excitiment of the caves! Also, go to the sweet shop and up Jacobs Ladder. Watch out for the goats and windy roads

We are travelling around Somerset and decided to call in and visit Cheddar Caves and Gorge. What a great day! The views driving along the Gorge are stunning. You buy your ticket and it covers all the attractions and its valid for 10 years, value for money I'd say! The staff are friendly, informative and helpful. Well worth a visit.

We purchased the all inclusive ticket with a bit extra for parking. The open top bus ride is very good as the guide is very informative and it's good to learn as well as see. The Gough cave was excellent and I loved the narrative, bring a jacket as it's cold in the cave! We also walked up to the... More

The ticket price includes 7 different 'activities', although one of these is just a public footpath so slightly dodgy marketing. The caves are fascinating and the views down the gorge are stunning so I'd say it is worth doing, but sadly overpriced for what you get.
