Make sure to plan your visit to the Cheddar Gorge in advance to enjoy this historical site to the fullest.
Cheddar Gorge is located 40 minutes’ drive from Bristol, near the small village of Cheddar. The Gorge is accessible from London, Wales and the Midlands by road. If you do not have a car, hop on the train from Bristol (Temple Meads station) in the direction of Weston-Super-Mare and take the bus 126 toward Cheddar.
There is much to do so give yourself enough time to enjoy every activity. Explore the largest cave, Gough’s cave and its beautiful rock formation before visiting the Cox’s Cave and its multi-media experience at the Dreamhunters hall. Adventure seekers head up to Jacob’s Ladder and its 274 steps to get magnificent views over the cliffs. Rock climbing is also available but needs to be booked in advance. Finish your day at the museum of Prehistory and learn all about the Ice Age.
While the area is safe for the whole family, make sure to wear appropriate footwear and accompany children at all times. Dogs are welcome as long as they are on leash and well behaved.
