Very Interesting but expensive

This was interesting and we learned quite a lot. I liked the idea of the phone type information at each stage. The second one we went into was a bit scary as it was tight and we... read more

The best day of our holiday was spent here. Beautiful place with lots of independant shops and places to eat and drink. The caves were fascinating.

This was interesting and we learned quite a lot. I liked the idea of the phone type information at each stage. The second one we went into was a bit scary as it was tight and we had to bend over as the ceiling was very low. I enjoyed going up the 270 steps to JACOBS EYE. Not a lot... More

The gorge- wow! The caves- wow! Is it worth a visit at the prices they charge? You'd be mad not to visit! I'm going to comment on the prices first as i've noticed a lot of negativity in reviews about how much it costs. Yes it could be considered expensive at £20 for adults and £14 for kids, but let's...

I was shocked when I saw the price on the entrance (£20 each). The ticket covers a few different things, but we only wanted to see the caves. Sadly, there was no option for this. The caves were interesting and we were pleased to be able to take in our dog. However, the experience we had was not worth £20... More

Its a great place to spend your day. Buy a ticket which pays for entrance into all the attractions, which start on an open top bus to the top of the gorge. We had "cheddar Trevor" to tell us about the history and attractions of the gorge. All the staff were great and explained about the caves etc. Its been... More

The day ticket is about £20 per adult on site, for five or six activities. This may be cheaper to purchase on the internet in advance. Brilliant visit to Gough's Cave. The hand held commentary is interesting and the walk inside saves the best two chambers until last. The other cave has an audio and projections onto the cave walls,... More

Plenty to see and do. The caves are fantastic as is Jacobs Ladder and the cliff top walk. A little pricey but worth it.

We bought a combined ticket for Cheddar Gorge/Caves and Longleat, saving ourselves a total of £9 per adult on the entrance, which made the admission price reasonable. Our son has a Blue Peter badge card so he was free - even better! If you want to see the caves, which are stunning and well worth it, then buying a ticket... More

The ticket cost £19.95 per person or £17.?? online or around £14.?? If you purchase it from the Tourist office in Glastonbury next to the George & Pilgrim Hotel. You will need to redeem it at the ticket office at the start of the Gorge where you can pick up the tour bus from. Goughs cave which is the main... More

Following other reviewers comments about high-prices charged by the Cheddar Gorge Co (who seem to have a monopoly here), we did not take advantage of their £20 day ticket nor their £5 parking fee. Firstly, note that the left side of the gorge is NT property and so you can park there for free. Simply drive through the town and... More
