We booked online for Wookey Hole so Pirate golf was free & very good (according to my son the crazy golf adict). He has a Blue Peter Badge which was also valid here. We were juggling two 9 year olds and a 90 year old grandmother in a wheelchair. There was a DVD of the caves for her to watch... More

Ok, spent the day here today and found it a little odd but really enjoyed it. Th caves are very pretty, the dinosaur 'park' that you came out of the caves to was a bit tired but if cleaned up a little could work well as a picnic area. Then there was then a barn of circus oddities, a diving... More

We visited Wookey hole caves today on a Friday as it was my sisters half term. We had paid online and wondered when we got there if the place was actually open!!!!We got our tickets and were told where to go for the cave tour. The cave tour was very brief and quite frankly a waste of total waste of... More

Recently visited as a Family Group as part of a Groupon Deal which was great value. The attraction was all very clean and tidy, especially the restaurant where the food was good and plentiful! The Caves themselves were amazing although I would have liked to have seen some more lighting and drama as I think there is scope there... The... More

The caves are a great experience. Tour lasts about 40 mins, the guide was very good with some amusing anecdotes. The caves obviously will be trickey for people with mobilty issues. The rest of the site is more catered around young children, although it is quite interesting for the young at heart. Book online for a discount on the price,... More

6 of us went. 3 adults one learning disability one ten year old and one nearly 4. Buy tickets online as you save 20% and the reference number is all you need no need to print. Firstly the cave is ok and guide was good. Wouldn't recommend for those unsteady on feet. After that a walk through dinosaur park which... More

We went during summer holidays, on a day that was forecast sunny, but ended up raining. The cave tour is about 30-40 mins and quite interesting, but can be tricky with toddlers or someone with mobility problems. It is dark and slippery in places. Inside the main building there is wood flooring, and it seems old fashioned. The children had... More

Very interesting to visit, the guides are very knowledgeable. Some steps to navigate so need to be steady on your feet.

Visiting the caves was a great experience but at £18 each it's overpriced and not worth it as we didn't really get to spend long in there. All the other attractions were poor and kind of grubby looking.
