Gorge on this fun event

Went there with my family (kids aged 8 and 9). It's great inside. The kids wanted to get round quicker than I wanted to, so we were probably only in there for an hour or so, but... read more

£19.95 for a package entry is extortionate so we weren't going to bother, but we asked at the cave entrance and managed to do just the cave for £10 each. It was interesting and the audio guide was good, but even at £10 it felt expensive. As for the parking. .. £5, another prime example of rip off Britain. The... More

I am a big geek when it comes to caves, so this was just amazing for me! We had a two year old with us who actually really enjoyed it. We tagged along with a guided tour, and the gentleman had so much knowledge about the caves and the history. It was so enjoyable, especially for me, i was in... More

I bought my tickets online to save some money - it wasn't cheap but for somebody who had not been underground before it was an amazing experience. The recorded guide was full of such interesting information and the views inside the caves took my breath away at times - there were lot of 'ooohhs' and 'aahhs'! we did have to... More

Great value for money and visits possible whatever the weather. Audio guide is included in the price and well worth listening to in full. Staff were really helpful and knowledgable, especially as I made a mistake with my online booking which they rectified really quickly.

Well we were in the area so thought wed drop in check it out. Yeah great for a walk and view at the top, but really - 19.95 per person to look in a cave?lovely village and good cafes but over rated as a whole. Get a life and go abroad!

A lovely place to visit and the guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. When we went it was fairly quiet as it was out of season and there's a special rate in the afternoon if you want a shorter visit.

I love caves and essentially there is nothing wrong with the Cheddar Gorge Caves, I just prefer Wookey Hole. The caves at Christmas in Wookey are amazing, absolutely beautiful. The Cheddar Caves are just a bit old and tired. Need a clean. Even the new cave (cannot remember the name) is a bit shabby in it's décor. The laser light... More

We stayed over at The Bath Arms hotel in Cheddar, it was very nice both food and accommodation. We walked the Gorge and that was a great day out! Nice county side and great views!
