Cheddar Caves and Gorge
Cheddar Caves and Gorge is a stunning, natural wonder and attract visitors all round the year. They are simply awesome, the two show caves, formed in the Ice-Age, are festooned with stalactites and spectacular rock formations. Look out for Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest skeleton and learn all about how our cave-dwelling ancestors lived. The gorge is equally impressive. There's a bus tour, but this place is best explored on foot. The three-mile round walk is sign-posted and offers some stunning scenery, plus Jacob's Ladder, 274 steps leading to an observation tower, from which there are great views over Somerset and even away to the sea. There are shops and cafes as well for your refreshment. Visit website for additional details.
The Cheddar caves and gorge are awesome, personally my fave area around Bristol. Check out the local cheese company after you take a trip down some of the caves.
Ignore the cheesy stuff that's been added to the caves, take them for what they are: Natural wonders.
