Seemed a lot to spend on just seeing goughs cave and the museum. The lookout tower we didn't do due to the horendous weather. Didn't like the kids audio guide. Full of silly fantasy stories and lacked any real teaching on how the caves were formed which seems a bit rubbish. Lots of stuff about witches and dragons which actually... More

We really enjoyed our time here - we visited the caves, museum and took the walk up to the lookout tower. The cave tour is interesting and the staff are very friendly, just make sure you wrap up warm! The museum is interesting...a bit scary for younger children though, as it is mainly focused around the cannibal part (I won't... More

Many of the shops etc are closed this time of year but most of the things you would want to see or do are available i.e the caves and the scenery. Good weather is helpful especially for the pretty strenuous 3 mile hike around the top of the gorge. Some areas on the national trust side of the gorge were... More

We travelled by coach after visiting Wells, the driver Davis started up the highest point and we came down the gorge to the village. This time of the year shops not all open, Had a nice scone tea, before we departed we saw goats high up the gorge.

My fiancee took me here as part of a birthday weekend. We really enjoyed our time here, the caves are absolutely amazing. Lots to take in and the audio guide really helped. I think we went out of season so enjoyed not queueing! We also did the hell steps and enjoyed the views!

We went on 29th Jan to Cheddar gorge and caves. If you are staying in Bristol you can go by bus from the city centre. During summer there are more options for group sight seeing. Never the less we higher education a taxi from Bristol city centre which costed £38 to Cheddar gorge. To go in to the caves and... More

After a drive through the Gorge we visited Goughs Cave. We were given audio guides which at the relevant points gave an interesting commentary about not only the cave's history, but its discovery and exploration. Explanations were also given about the reasons for the naming of sections of the rock formations. The walk through the caves is generally easy going... More

A drive through the George will fill you with wonder at how this was formed by nature. Of course for those who have the energy it holds plenty to do , walks, climbing and cycling . The base of the George is heavily populated with Tourist attractions and of course the Caves ( worth a visit ). Cheese making and... More
