This cave, otherwise known as Cox's Cave, a place where I have been several times over the years, is a small but interesting cave that has been given the Hollywood treatment to its detriment. It has projected images and garish lights that purport to tell...More

There is long route that you can take for walk up and down gorge. The cave where cheddar is matured is a bit pricey. Almost £20 per person.

Hadn't been here for years but came back for a couple of hours and walked up the Gorge. I'd forgotten how rugged and spectacular the place was and as it was a quiet Tuesday morning it was a pleasant walk around without too many tourists...More

Well worth a day out, just remember to book online before you go to save some serious money. Parking is an extra £5.00 per car paid on site but that is for all day so well worth it. All day to do all the attractions...More

Tickets are cheaper if, like us, they are booked online at least the evening before your visit. Car parking is £5. Caves are still good to see and the multi-lingual handheld guides worked well so you can go at your own pace, fast or slow...More

The weather does make a day. A sunny Sunday, Not too crowed. Plenty of parking through the gorge. Lots of shops, cafes and ice creams stalls. Don't like the motorbikes that come whizzing down around the blind bends even though its a 30 zone. Not...More
