About

Discover the breathtaking splendour of Britain's most beautiful stalactite cavern where Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest skeleton, was found. Audio guides bring the cave to life for kids and adults, telling the fascinating story of its Ice Age creation, Stone Age occupation and Victorian exploration.

You can also try out adventure caving It's hard! It’s dirty! It's fun! A real caving expedition deep inside the Mendip Hills, with climbs, crawls and squeezes – you'll go from zero to hero. Suitable for beginners. Daily – all year round.

In addition, there is a museum, lookout tower, crystal quest and after all that, Costa Coffee so you can relax with a light lunch or hot drink and wedge of cake!
