Really enjoyed my visit to see how they made cheese, but wasn't so pleased with the smell. The caves were interesting,but not for everyone.

We cannot comment on the value for money, etc. for the experience of buying tour tickets for the caves and so on as we visited without spending a penny and really enjoyed ourselves. We parked up in Cheddar Village before walking up the gorge, passing the gift shops and cafes before following the road up through the dramatic gorge. It was beautiful walking up the gorge and is not that steep or difficult, once near the top we took a path to the right of the road which was fairly steep as it got you out of the gorge. Once at the top we followed the path along the gorge side which overs great views over to Glastonbury Tor as well as down into the gorge itself. We then made our way back down into the gorge by walking down Jacobs Ladder (which is free in this direction) before sampling some variations of Cheddar cheese.

The Gorge is stunning- driving down is a treat. The town itself is quaint and the caves interesting- some good walks and interesting info

Can't reccommend this more on a warm sunny day, take a picnic and do the walk around the top of the gorge. The first steps climb is quite tough but after that it gets easier! The views are amazing, its peaceful, can't recommend it enough! Haven't done the touristy things there, seems quite expensive and its set up for families, but there are loads of places for a cream tea after a long walk which slips down a treat! Try and go off peak times, it does get busy, but that just proves how great it is!
