Stone Age Summer at Cheddar Gorge & Caves


Experience the Stone Age for yourself this summer at the prehistoric land of Cheddar Gorge & Caves. 

Walk in the footsteps of your ancestors and see where Cheddar Man, Britain’s oldest, most complete skeleton was discovered in Gough’s Cave. 
Visit the Museum of Prehistory to see artefacts discovered in the Cheddar area, meet a hunter-gatherer in the Garden and learn about your ancestors. Discover how they lived over 40,000 years ago, in this very spot, sheltering in Gough’s Caves and foraging among the great grasslands for food. 

Get into the cave man spirit with prehistoric dress-up, make your own thumb clay pot and brass rubbings of prehistoric creatures such as the woolly mammoth. See the story of early man with the multimedia experience Dreamhunters at Cox’s Cave where a story unfolds with the cave walls as the canvas.

The venture up the 274 steps of Jacob’s Ladder to access the vantage point of the Lookout Tower where you can survey the panoramic view from this vantage point. Then challenge yourself to the three mile Cliff-top Walk, or simply climb to top of the gorge to view the vista and take in the stunning scenic views of the Mendip Hills. Alternatively, you can watch a cinematic journey through the gorge with Beyond the View which portrays the gorge with a 180 degree screen.

All of this is included with your Day Ticket. Book online and save up to 15%.

Cheddar Gorge & Caves also offers additional adventure activities to further add to your exploration from Escape Room games and Caving to Rock Climbing and the Black Cat Free Fall. Suitable for all abilities, whether you’re a novice or expert.
