There’s more to Cheddar Gorge than just cheese!

Cheddar, Somerset

Explore the famous caves at Cheddar on a deep, dark, expedition, and see where the Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest skeleton, was discovered.

Spend the day challenging yourself on an adventure caving expedition deep into the Mendip Hills at Cheddar Gorge, located just one hour outside of Bath in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

Alongside a caving guide you’ll embark on a quarter of a mile route and climb, crawling and squeezing through many different chambers. The final obstacle is to slide headfirst through a tiny gap known as the letterbox before finishing a proud and muddy hero. All equipment will be provided so you’ll just need to bring clothes you don’t mind getting caked in mud. 

 Don’t forget to frame your certificate of achievement that you’ll be awarded at the end!
