We went as two families with four boys from ages 3-8. The caves are beautiful and have a tour guide, which admittedly the children weren't that taken with, but the adults enjoyed. After the caves there is a short dinosaur walk and picnic benches where we ate (took our lunch to keep costs down). Then there are a few museum type bits from old circus and penny slots. Hall of mirrors is fun. There is an indoor play bit where the boys disappeared for an hour even though its not very big, so we could grab a coffee, then there is another big ball play pen further on which kept them amused for another hour, shooting balls at each other. We saw the circus which was an hours entertainment, and was much better than last year.
It can be pricey, but we had half price tickets from groupon. Their own website also has click and print offers sometimes. If your not expecting a huge all signing all dancing attraction, its a great day out for younger children.

We went to wookey hole in the half term holidays,luckily i had a voucher from the local paper 1 free child with every full paying adult ,(£16 adult). The cave tour tour took approx half an hour,exploring underground caves,our guide BILL was fab,its dark & damp in there,not completely suitable for small children,outside they have a paper making mill,which is hands on,but you cant keep any paper,The best bit of the day was the matinee performance in the circus ring,acrobatics,magic,thrilling circus stunts displayed by school children on their half term hols.You can have an enjoyable day out,BUT beware of the Wookey hole witch!!!
