“Good Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

There is regular tour guides for this and they take you around the caves, cavern by cavern. It is worth doing.

“Not for small childern”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Wookey Hole was expensive, £40 for 2 adults & one 3 year old (our 10 month old was free). The caves were very scary for a 3 year old, and the ceilings are very low.
The other part of the attraction was ok, but not very interacive, and was a bit of a rip off for how much there is to do.

“Very poor value for money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

We visited using Tesco vouchers but had we paid full price with real money we would have been very disappointed, the tour of the caves itself is very good but way too short, other than the tour there is very little to do and if you are there more than 3 hours from when you park the car you really are flogging a dead horse! - Would probably be a bit better for families with very young children as they might appreciate the circus/plastic dinosaurs etc.

My advice is to only go if you get a killer deal somewhere and also plan to do something else in the morning/afternoon as you won't stay long if you come here.

“WOOKEY HOLE VISIT - MOBILITY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

I have limited mobility and recently visited Wookey Hole Caves, I found the staff very helpful and pointed out concessions at the pay point as I was unable to visit the caves. There are also concessions for carers, plenty of toilet facilities, there was a virtual tour to enjoy as I was not able to enter the caves. There is a lot of entertainment for younger visitors, but also things for adults to enjoy, I think parts of the building would be difficult to navigate wheelchair etc on busy periods due to the volume of visitors. overall I had a pleasant visit. Best visited if walking is a problem a off peak times.
