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 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.

A really good day out. Though it recommends one hour on this site, I think you could easily spend 4 here. If you buy the attraction ticket in advance, by midnight the day before you go, you will save 15%. It's well worth it. You...More

Although the price is a little steep I used Tesco vouchers to get us in more cheaply. Parking only opens at specific times and you cannot do the hike until the activities are open as you need to climb Jacob's ladder but luckily we met...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.
