Safety & Accessibility

We want to make sure that all visitors to Cheddar Gorge & Caves have an enjoyable and unforgettable day out and do so safely. Here are a few pointers to ensure you and our other visitors enjoy the visit.

  • With rocky paths, cliff edges and high vantage points, it can be dangerous so please ensure children and other vulnerable people are carefully supervised.
  • The Gorge Walk can be muddy and slippery underfoot on wet days. Wear walking shoes/boots and clothing to suit the weather. Be careful at cliff-edges.
  • Those with severely restricted mobility will find much of Cheddar Gorge & Caves inaccessible including the caves, the Gorge Walk and the Lookout Tower. See accessibility notes on individual pages for details.
  • Audio guides, audio loop systems and transcripts are available in many areas to assist those with impaired sight or hearing. See accessibility notes on individual pages for details.
  • Staff are on-hand to help you, so please ask their advice to help you get the best experience.
