About

Reaching up to 500 feet in places, Cheddar Gorge boasts the highest inland cliffs in the country and can be viewed both from the public road running through the base of the gorge or from footpaths along the cliff tops.

At the lower end of the gorge, closest to the village are riverside walks, tea rooms and gift shops and the famous Cheddar Showcaves, a series of labyrinthine underground chambers accessible to the public. Don't miss the new Cannibal exhibit.

Cheddar cheese is known throughout the world, its manufacture originating at farms in the region. You can watch traditional Cheddar cheese making at the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company in the lower gorge.

The Mendip hills are a great centre for walking, riding, adventure activities and outdoor pursuits, particularly caving and climbing. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the limestone plateau is noted for its landscape beauty and wildlife.
