I've just realised I can use my Tesco days out vouchers for Wookey Hole so it'd be cheaper but it looks SO tacky now (I went about 25 yrs ago).

Is Cheddar Gorge better?

DS is 5

i would say wookey hole is not worth it ,we went last year with the dc they was 4 ,7 13 and 16 and honestly it was tacky the cave tour is done in groups an dthey was moving on to next before rest caught up .no time to look around and just look at the caves as was on to next bit .

Cheddar gorge wa smore value for money more to do and see and was not rushed and you can do more if its a all cave ticket and theres teh museum to .Also in the town go on the free dairy tour one of mine i think ate his bodweight in cheese samples a sthey was suprised how strong cheese he liked so kept giving him more

I don't know. Both of them sound like euphemisms for female genitalia. Are you turning your day trips? If do, I can recommend Lord Hereford's Knob.

I would rather go to Cheddar. I've been to both but years ago, we looked into them both and Wookey Hole has got terrible reviews and at Cheddar you get free cheese grin

I think cheddar is a better all round day out, and when in the area we do both. Wookey seems to be aiming more towards family entertainment, cheddar more leisurely. If I had to do one of the other I would do Wookey with a younger family (say under 8-10 and cheddar with an older family.

Thank you all - we went to Cheddar in the end & was fab. DS LOVED the caves (but was scared in the Dragon Quest thing which was a bit weird) and we managed to do the Gorge walk, despite the slippery rocks & mud. We also saw one of the Peregrines and DS is thrilled . Am glad we didn't go to Wookey Hole - Cheddar was tacky touristy enough.
