We visited cheddar on way back from Wookey Hole some fantastic scenery. Parked at bottom of village and walked back intending to look at shops etc., although it was only 5ish most of the shops and restuarants were starting to shut up, very disappointing. The gorge itself is very impressive and we would have walked further back up if things had been open. Did have a fantastic fish and chips at bottom by car park, very clean restaurant and lovely waitress, glad we only ordered medium size cod an chips it was huge and childs portion of cod bites was rather large for a 4 year old but would have been good for an older child. Chicken burgers were also good

As a family (1 disabled adult, 1 adult carer, 1 disabled child and 2 children) this cost us over £55 to get the tickets for the day and that didn't include the extra £5 parking cost.
The Coughs Cave at the top was amazing and really well done. A great place to see some amazing natural sites and beautiful rock formations etc. The "museum of pre history" was disappointing. There was so much potential, but it just didn't deliver. Cox's cave was similar, but "the Crystal Quest" was just totally naff in our opinion. The fake people was just disappointing. The steps and the "lookout tower" were great for those who could go.
Honestly we're happy to pay for a good day out, but this just wasn't that. Really quite disappointing although the staff were lovely, friendly and really cheerful.

I got my all inclusive tickets through tesco club card what a great deal.
The bus tour through the gorge has to be taken on the top deck to appreciate the scale of the place.
You get dropped off outside goughs cave which is well worth a visit.you get a free audio guide to help you.be careful as the floor is very damp and the ceiling can be very low in places.
The crystal caves are a little smaller but are set out like spooky grotto good fun.
Jacobs ladder is worth the climb to see the views on top of the observation tower and there is a nature trail around the top of the gorge.
There are plenty of little shops to explore not to badly priced and the food on offer is ok.
Car parking is five pounds all day and can be used in all the car parks around the gorge.
Overall a very pleasant day out.

We had been to the caves many years ago and they are enjoyable and very interesting. Sadly the trip was badly let down by the toilets which were very dirty and had no paper - not one! Also there was no disabled key available. There were very few bins (in fact didn't see a single one) and this contributed to the rather "down at heel" look. A great shame. We probably won't go again.

Never went into the caves - but the gorge alone is stunning - wasn't even that busy with tourists - it is just incredible to contemplate how much force and time must've been needed to create this part of the UK.
