Cycle to the dramatic Cheddar Gorge on the Strawberry Line, or walk the hilltops following the Mendip Way from the coast to the historic city of Wells. Take in the breathtaking views and the fresh air of the countryside. 

Europe's largest underground cave network offers caving adventures for both the beginner and the experienced caver. This striking landscape also offers climbing and abseiling on the Gorge and quarry rock faces, so there's always something to keep you active and engaged.
