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.

"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."
