Visit Cox's Cave

Experience a celestial underground world

Enjoy this beautiful sanctuary with its colourful calcite sculptures and dancing fountains. Wonder at the incredible mirror pools; it's hard to figure out where the pool ends and the reflection begins. The cave is brought to life by light making it feel like another, more spiritual, world. Haunting choral music enhances the reflective mood.

Cox’s Cave & The Crystal Quest will be closed between 4th January - 25th March 2016. Ticket holders visiting on this date can come back with their ticket to visit the cave on another date at no extra charge. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. All other attractions will remain open as normal.

"The Cheddar Caves are awe inspiring, the Crystal Quest is funny and terrifying, the museums are weirder than weird and the cliff-top walk is breathtaking. A great day out for children and adults."
