Very expensive for what it was and didn’t take that long to walk round. The drive through was far better than the caves .

Fascinating step back into the past, plus an interesting peek into the production and storage of the original cave matured cheddar cheese.

We visited the Gorge on a cold February Sunday. It was very quiet but we had no trouble parking which was great! We loved Gough’s cave, and the climb up Jacobs ladder which was worth the trek for the amazing views. Cox’s cave was a...More

Really got to explore some of the history around cheddar and of course the caves and cheese maturing process. The £20 price tag includes loads of tours so worth the money!

I remember visiting here as a child and wanted to revisit. Incredibly busy for a February half term. The cost is I think is too much. Coxs cave is awful such mumbo jumbo could have been a much better display about the significance and importance...More

I cycled to Cheddar Gorge and stopped at the Costa Coffee. Nice big spacious areas to enjoy a drink and a good mix of people. High standards of cleanliness and the staff were quick and smart. Nice one Costa.

Visited during a very wet day in the half term. We used Tesco vouchers to pay for the tickets and as it was pouring with rain we only visited the caves and the museum. Cox"s cave was great with a light show tracing the history...More

This is a different and interesting day out, if you book tickets in advance they are cheaper than on the day. We found all the staff very helpful. The cafe half way up the hill was lovely.

Visited on a cold November day on the way back up north with a few friends and we spent a good few hours in the caves and checking out some of the shops! Would certainly recommend to anyone who hasn't already been!

Fantastic day out for all the family. Thought was a bit pricey but when we arrived so much to do it was worth every penny. Lovely views and fantastic caves.

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.
