should be separate price for each attraction as you may only want to visit one cave. open topbus does not run any more. controlled crossings needed very busy road to cross. not enough seating for adults.

Highl6recommend. Fantastic for children. Our 6 and 8 year old enjoyed the children's audio story through cheddar Caves. We visited on Tesco Clubcard vouchers. Highly recommended as much cheaper. Fantastic day out.

A good mixture of natural beauty and things to do. The caves are interesting and the cliff top walk is very picturesque. Beware, the path at the top is very slippery when wet

Goughs cave was stunning, excellent visually. Would recommend picking up the audio guidance. The walls nearby also provide amazing views, but they are steep so be careful if taking young children. Some tea nice tea rooms close by and the museum is also very good

Lots to do for our children aged 10 and 8. The open top bus tour has been replaced with a video, which, although well done, is not as exciting. Clearly a cost saving exercise. The caves are still excellent and really enjoyed the new exhibit...More

After reading lots of reviews and seeing the price at nearly £60 for a family we decided not to do the caves as we had previously done wookie hole caves first. The gorge itself is free to drive through and pretty impressive and we didn't...More

Really enjoyed the whole attraction, the audio tour was really interesting and both the kids enjoyed the audio tour surprisingly. Other than some people who park without any consideration for others I can't find fault with the caves and the gorge.

Great way to spend a day - visiting the caves and museum, and climbing up to the hilltop and Jacob's Ladder to enjoy great views of the surrounding countryside, and of course exploring the charming village of Cheddar.

National Trust membership doesn't cover the caves or unfortunately the parking! The best deal is to use Tesco vouchers if you either shop or buy fuel there.
