The caves are very interesting, my grandchildren loved it there. There is plenty to see and do, and the price is reasonable. Some of the old slot machines in the old paper factory are fascinating, and the children loved the mirror maze. Worth a visit with younger children.

The only downfall was having to leave our pram, then walk all the way back round to collect it after...I'd suggest leaving it at the park entrance so you don't make the... More

Lovely tour of Wookey caves, very well organised great story and well delivered. Honestly I feel it's a little pricey for what it is but that's just my option. I Loved the old fashioned arcade loads of fun, mirrors was funny but all a little dated..Really is just a nice place to visit

The caves were interesting and took about 30 minutes for the tour but the rest of the site was just confused. Struggled to stay more than an hour and for £18+ per adult it was a bit of a shame. Like another reviewer we'd been meaning to go having driven past signs for years but were disappointed.

Although a bit pricey, these caves are quite extensive and very interesting to see. Would have appreciated a bit more geological information on their formation than just the folklore but it was good. Would recommend trying to get a tour guide that is understandable. The young chap that took us round had a very thick accent and we really had... More

Visited here on the 4th July while on holiday in Somerset. The tour of the caves takes around 30 mins to complete and the guide (Joe) was fantastic, the caves are also amazing inside its just a pity the tour is over so quick. Once out the caves you end up in the dinosaurs bit where there are several plastic... More

Having holidayed in Cornwall for many years as a child (and adult) and driven past the signs on the M5 for Wookey Hole I finally got to visit (at 44!). From the leaflet I suspected a bit of a gimmick/theme park environment. It's nice that it's a guided tour, our guide (Joe?) was enthusiastic and engaging and the lighting/effects and... More
