Always a fun day out walking through all the shops with the cheese and cider and traditional sweet shops. The marshmallow company needs a visit also, hidden gem. Love the caves, good for school trips, family outings, couples trips. Always interesting to learn more about the history.

The view of the cheddar gorge is amazing. The ticket is also of good value. The caves are well maintained and narrated which makes the overall experience unforgettable.

We were staying in the area and by chance we decided to visit Cheddar Gorge and Caves. We visited in January and there was loads of free parking available everywhere so that was a bonus. Looks like there is free parking all year just north of the main thoroughfare in the Gorge itself I think. The ticket is fairly expensive... More

We drove the length of the gorge in the car as the bus service wasn't running. The view is spectacular with the enormous cliffs rising up on either side of the road. We then parked up which costs £5 for all day which is very reasonable. Goughs Cave is where we started and it is breathtaking. You can move at... More

It was absolutely pouring when we arrived at the Gorge and we quickly decided that we would explore the caves first. We paid for our tickets and parking (one ticket for all the car parks all day) and entered the first cave Coxs Cave to see the Dreamhunter exhibition. An ancient cave melded with cutting edge visual effects and technology.... More

The gorge is worth visiting and the drive from the top down to Cheddar is worth doing. We called there for a few hours on our way south. Parking is £5 all day and we did get a £2 reduction as we arrived at 3pm. All the parking up along the gorge itself also has to be paid for at... More

We, a family of six ranging from 7 years to 64 years, spent the day here and we all enjoyed it. It is definitely worth buying the combined ticket in advance and this gives entry to the two caves, as well as Jacobs Ladder, the museum and the bus ride. These are all quite different, the main cave is a... More
