Reconnect With Nature
Discover the breathtaking splendour of Britain’s most beautiful karst limestone stalactite cavern. Gough’s cave is home to the UK’s largest colony of endangered greater horseshoe bats. A fascinating audio guided tour brings the cave to life.
Explore this beautiful little grotto with its colourful calcite sculptures that formed when water re-deposited and dissolved its limestone.
Enjoy your tour of the dramatic landscape of Cheddar Gorge. See some of Britain’s most spectacular views. Pass the water voles that make their home in the millponds, Peregrines nesting on the cliffs and dormice asleep in nests of honeysuckle bark.
A stunning 3-mile walk through an area that is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation. Spot rare species like dormice and great crested newts. Why not take a picnic lunch and enjoy the finest views in Somerset?
Climb the 274 steps to the Lookout Tower and 48 more to get to the top. If the climb doesn’t take your breath away, the views will! Get a bird's eye view of Cheddar Reservoir – it’s filled from Gough's River Cave, the biggest underground river catchment in Britain.
Find out about how our ancestors survived the Ice Age. The Museum of Prehistory brings together the findings from Cheddar excavations and shows how they fit into the fascinating story.

"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."
