Went there today with our 10 year old grandson. A good attraction and very interesting to hear about the use of the caves from the stone age on. Very beautiful in places too. Our guide was lovely (sorry but cannot remember her name as it...More
If you are in the area, this is the place to visit! So much fun and very informative, our guide had lots to say and kept our attention the whole way around. Take care if you have anyone who struggles with walking as it can...More
It was a miserable day in February, so we thought we would investigate Kent’s Cavern. Well worth a visit. A really interesting place to spend a few hours. The colours and rock formations are amazing, and the tour guide (Chloe) was very knowledgeable and extremely...More
Well worth the trip great place only downfall is that the restaurant opens at 9.00 the caverns are listed opening time is 10.00 but the tour does not start till 11.00 and you can't go into the caverns without the tour, so don't get there...More
An amazing journey through the caves, presented by an excellent tour guide!
The Devonian caves were well explained for all ages and knowledges. All facts seemed correct to me (I'm an undergrad geology student). I loved how there were artefacts on display before hand and...More
This was a totally random find for us, as we were discussing visiting Wookey Hole on the way home from Torquay, and our hotel's owner recommended the local Kents Cavern. Taking his advice, we walked the 20 mins or so uphill to the Cavern, and...More
Came here with my boyfriend earlier this week. We both really enjoyed the caves. The tour guide David was brilliant, he included everybody in the group, funny and he dealt really well with crying children. Would definitely recommend!! Went to the cafe after but for...More
All i can say is fantastic. The tour was great. The tour guide was really nice. They also have a cafe and gift shop. You can also eat outside if the weather is nice. I would defiantly pay the a visit. Also very educational.
The cafe was pleasant but uninspired and the gift shop generic without much reference to the nature of the attraction. So we were not wholly surprised by the rather pedestrian delivery of the narrative during the tour. The story is focused on the use of...More
I have been many times as a child to the caves and wanted to share the experience with friends and my partner. We ended up going on the ghost adventure evening which was fantastic. The actors were all amazing and the stories and information was...More

Yes. You can take even babies into the caves. Be aware that there is a sound and light show at the beginning of the tour and a brief moment darkness. Tour guides are well trained to look after and entertain children as well... More
