At Cheddar Caves & Gorge you'll find eight great attractions in Britain's biggest gorge, all covered by one Explorer ticket: cathedral-like Gough's Cave with audioguide tours; beautiful Cox's Cave; the Museum of Prehistory with Stone Age survival demonstrations by hunter-gatherers; the challenge of The Crystal Quest; The 274 steps leading to our 360-acre nature reserve; spectacular views from Lookout Tower; the 3-mile round-trip Clifftop Gorge Walk; the open-top Gorge Tour Bus. Take it to the edge with RockSport caving and climbing, shop till you drop in our Cargo Cult shop, watch authentic Cheddar Cheese ageing in our caves or just relax on the Cafe-Bar terrace with a cream tea. We're also a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation with many rare species, such as Horseshoe bats, dormice and Peregrine falcons. Plenty of parking. The settlement at Cheddar has been an important Roman and Saxon centre and is known for its cheese making as early as 1170 AD.
