Cheddar Gorge and Caves

Landscapes & Nature See & Do


Cheddar Gorge is on the southern area of the Mendip Hills. A spectacular limestone ravine with rocks to a height of 100m (328 ft) and a winding road passes through the gorge for approximately 5 km (3 miles). For the more energetic a footpath follows the top of the gorge on its southern edge.

Cheddar cheese was given its name from this area and the caves within the gorge once provided the perfect constant temperature to store the cheese.

In the summer open top bus tours travel down the gorge and guided tours of the caves are also available.
