Cheddar Gorge is made up of lots of small caves but the two largest, Gough's Cave and Cox's Cave, are open to the public.

Once you’re kitted out with an ultra-sonic bat detector the bat patrol explores Gough’s Cave, a mystical limestone stalactite cavern where endangered greater horseshoe bats scan the night air for moths and insects to feed on. The caves are home to the UK’s largest colony. Don’t worry if you’re as blind as a bat and have trouble spotting them as the conservation officer leading the walk will be happy to help point them out.
