Wookey Hole Caves

Wookey Hole Caves are another popular destination in Somerset. Their close proximity to Cheddar enables cave lovers to visit the two destinations on the same day with the added benefit of the city of Wells just two miles down the road.

The caves lie under the Mendip Hills and have been carved out by the flow of the River Axe. Wookey Hole caves feature one of the largest natural domes in Europe and 25 caverns have been discovered with exploration continuing.

A mile to the northwest of Wookey Hole lies Ebbor Gorge which is owned by the National Trust and features two scenic walks around the gorge.
