Utterly beautiful chocolate box village, there are not enough superlatives to describe this place. Picturesque and pleasant. Dog friendly everywhere and exceptionally nice people there. Lots of parking and at £5 for a whole day reasonable too. Stunning surrounding villages. Well worth a visit

So now I know where the best cheddar comes from. Cheddar Gorge was probably more commercialised than I expected but it's still well worth a visit. The hand-dug caves were extremely impressive. Try the cave-matured cheese - it certainly has a different flavour.

This was quite expensive but glad we visited. The main cave was so impressive especially with the audio guide. The gimmicky one not so much! Good day out.

Go if you must – but please just drive through, admire the steep walls of the Gorge on your way down, then go elsewhere. Why? you might ask. Well the Gorge tourist attraction is nothing more than a structured commercial rip-off. Fancy a 20 minute...More

As the others have said there really aren't any edges or drops close to paths, Jacobs Ladder steps are long but not especially steep so fine. And for the record although I've done over 3,500 skydives I hate heights and... More
