The Cheddar cave and gorge are well worth a visit. The caves are mesmerising! We did the three mile cliff top walk which has breath taking views, I would reckoned proper walking shoes and sticks.

Absolutely amazing. Beautifully stunning caves and gorge, a reminder of how beautiful the UK really is. Our children loved it too. Best advice...... Take a jumper, it is a little chilly in those caves!

Decided to stop off here and was not disappointed . Did the open top bus and Goughs cave. The kids especially enjoyed the cave with the audio tour in story mode.

Took the open top bus, even my kids were loving it. Cheddar Gorge is amazing, Gough's cave is brilliant and the new cave thingy (can't remember the name) with the interactive bits was really really great. One of England's best bits of history. Loved it.

We booked this for our 11 year old son who loves outdoor sports. The activity was very well led with a high standard of safety for all those taking part. It was worth the £20.00 it cost as our son loved every second of it....More

Everyone has answered your question. We are here now, it's very quiet. I would suggest you park immediately opposite the entrance, in Costa. Let your other half out, then you park up. Just a thought.
