Cheddar Gorge: To visit or not to visit

Cheddar Gorge: To visit or not to visit

Everyone in the South West (at least) knows about Cheddar Gorge, whether you have visited it or not. My partner and I ventured down there last Friday for the day and it was great! To my surprise, it was dog-friendly as well, which is always a bonus.

With your ticket you get access to Goughs cave, The lookout (unavailable when we visited BUT your ticket lasts a year if you don’t use it which is really great if your plans change!) Museum of pre-history, Cox’s cave and Jacobs Ladder.

We went to Gough’s cave first which was well lit (enough to see where you were going but not enough to think you weren’t in a cave) and you were given a small handheld guide to wander around with.

Then you have Jacobs Ladder and the hill top walk. The lookout will soon be up here but it’s currently under construction.

The village of Cheddar is extremely beautiful with lots to do (there’s a dog bakery, cupcakes and all!) with mini golf too, of course my partner beat me but only by 6 so I’m getting better for sure.img_9096img_9079img_9099img_9102

Cox’s cave has been turned into a walkthrough with 9 educational videos with sensory parts to enjoy. The videos are projected onto the walls of the cave.img_9126

Then the museum was extremely educational, everything was well worth the 1:30 hour drive. I would definitely recommend a visit!
