Cheddar Gorge NOT only made famous by the Cheese that has for centuries been matured in the caves because of the humidity and natural temperature but also because it is a place of outstanding beauty.
Basically between the city of Bath and Wells it is a 'must visit' When anywhere near the SW of England.
From the moment you start the drive down into the Gorge- stopping In one of the lay-bys to take photos of the goats! To when you enter the village proper with its cafes, bars, restaurants and, of course- cheese shops.
Take à guided tour through the caves-
Great fun and VERY interesting.

Not been here for 20 years and it seems nothing changed, unfortunately we couldn't go in the caves because it's not disabled friendly also we couldn't go up Jacobs ladder but I would totally recommend it from past experience..

There's lots of quaint little shops up and down the street & plenty of places for a cuppa & an ice cream,

If you like kebab I would totally recommend the kebab shop at the bottom of the hill opposite the car park

Talking about car parks there's about 6 all together but if you park a the top car parks beware of falling rocks,

Also there not to expensive for the day ....

As I had a disabled friend with me there's not much more I can say apart from it was worth the visit but it's not for the physically disabled ...

Have fun x

Amazing place to visit. Kids were very impressed. Was grateful for the individual audio tours which were easy to follow.

A short drive from Bath or Wells brings you to Chedder Gorge.Parking is £5 for all day.The parking ticket can be bought from the shop across the road from the car park.Take your time wandering around the various craft and gift shops.Visit the various cider and cheese shops.See sweets being made and eat at the many tea shops,pubs and cafes.The fish and chip shop does lovely food if you wanted something more substantial.The price of ticket includes the steep climb to Jacobs ladder and lookout and three mile walk.This part of the ticket lasts for ten years and do this as many times as you like.One time only entrances to the caves and prehistoric museam.The caves are impressive.Wear good walking shoes.Not suitable for small children,disabled and those who have difficulty with walking.Goffs cave has audio handsets which enhance the experience, Cox cave has lights and sound features.
Well worth a visit.Open top bus ride not really worth the money.

We found an all-day parking spot for £5 and later came upon some free spaces on the road which bisects the Gorge, at the walkers' crossing place. The man at the National Trust information centre was very helpful and made us laugh; launching us off on a good walk showing us where it started and pointing out the route and highlights along the way. The excellent map and notes cost 50p. The first ascent is steep and we puffed a lot, but it was so worth getting to the top. Glorious views across the Gorge, over to Glastonbury Tor on the hazy horizon and down into the reservoir. Seas of butterflies on the heathland tops. We didn't see any goats, but we did see a few climbers! All those years ago as a child when I visited Cheddar but never did this walk, so glad I've done it now - in my seventh decade!
