About Cheddar Gorge
At 400ft deep and three miles long, this is England’s largest gorge and features many spectacular caves.
Gough’s Cave, in particular, is almost 500,000 years old.
Visitors can see secret caverns, the ancient elders’ meeting cave, and stunning views created by stalagmites and stalactites.
As you look at the stunning surroundings you can listen to the audio guides to learn about the story of the ‘Cheddar man’ who once lived here.
In Cox’s Cave watch the spectacular multimedia experience including visual and sound effects, which tell more about the history of early man.
