The staff were fantastic and the bus trip, brilliant - stunning, dramatic views of the gorge coupled with fascinating tours of Gough's Cave and even better, Cox's Cave and the Crystal Quest. Well worth a visit! Treat yourself to the Cave-Aged Cheddar from the... More

I love places like this, a little mystery, a little suspense, this place shows you just how beautiful mother earth really is. You can take a guided tour which I think offers a little bit more but we chose to walk around by ourselves. Some of the formations are amazing, and considering people were working down here is quite something,... More

We paid £14.95 for our ticket (that was with a £4 discount bought from Glastonbury tourist office) The site is managed by Longleat enterprises although it is really a natural attraction that really shouldnt cost anything to experience. In with your ticket you get to walk around Goughs caves which is worth seeing. I would reccommend using the audio tour... More

Very good half day in the gorge with my young daughter and wife. This was their first trip to the Gorge and were impressed by the caves (especially Gough's cave). The natural architecture is breath taking. Another great feature was Jacob's ladder and the look out tower. We were there on a clear day and the views were spectacular! if... More

Ticket allows entry to the 2 caves in Cheddar to enter and explore. Open top bus tour of the Gorge. The museum .. Very interesting and informative. And up Jacobs ladder (247 steps to the top of the cliff) leading to the lookout tower with stunning views over the whole countryside. We are a mature couple 52yrs. Loved all of... More
