Thankfully we used Tesco vouchers to pay for our visit on a Sunday in January. We checked opening times and information online before leaving the house so were surprised to see a notice saying that there would be no witch and no circus shows.Even more bewildering was the sign at the cave entrance: Guided tours every thirty minutes and half...

We visited this attraction on a January weekend. It wasn't busy. We enjoyed walking through the caves and the guide made it fun. Would recommend but only to those who are steady on their feet

Visited Wookey Hole on New Years day, upon arrival ourselves and other families visiting were told that the various offer vouchers were not valid as they were still in their winter wonderland period, had to pay £60 for a family of 4 which is a lot of money for what it is. New caves had been opened up - but... More

A day trip to the caves was a bit lacking. The caves themselves were great, the guide was enthusiastic however the lighting and special effects were half hearted. However speak to the guide, ask questions and he was extremely knowledgeable. The rest of the place was pretty average bordering extremely worn out. Considering an adult pays over £18 for the...

We stayed at the hotel just opposite and wanted to do the tour of the caves. We had a lovely guide Brian who was very informative and funny. The views inside where incredible. Lots of things to do as well as the caves. Would be lovely in the summer as lots to do outside.

In a word... 'Naff' The caves had been 'festively decorated' for Christmas, however on the day of our visit, our tour guide told us they had experienced some lighting issues, so not all of the Christmas lights would be working. What a good job!! The caves themselves are stunningly beautiful and it was such a shame to see them covered... More

Had been wanting to visit for a while and we both really enjoyed it! It is rather random with the attractions, it doesn't really flow altogether but fun none the less. Your guide was nice and good fun and the rest was nice to walk around. Food around £8 for an adult for a buffet/canteen style meal, plenty of pubs... More

I can really recommend this venue. So much to do all in one place. The circus show performed in the theatre by the local circus school was brilliant. It gave me 45 minutes to switch off from the demands of the children. Fantastic day!!

... much of the rest was tourist tat! We paid too much (even after an online booking discount), and not even the Christmas lights could conceal how tired the facilities were. There should be some investment of the profits made, to improve things. The caves were interesting, as was the commentary (not full of bad jokes), but the interior lighting... More
