Wookey Hole Caves
Telephone: 01749 672 243
Britain's most spectacular caves and legendary home of the infamous Witch of Wookey.
Wander through the prehistoric valley of the Dinosaurs and find the Witch's Laboratory and 4D Cinema! The 19th Century Paper Mill houses a variety of fascinating attractions including the Victorian Penny Arcade, Magical Mirror Maze, museums, play areas, and the Circus Show (weekends and school holidays). Round the day off with a game of Pirate Golf!
Caves - NEW
Deep underground, the caves have been holding a secret.. Chamber 20 is now accessible to the public for the first time, and definitely worth a look! It houses rock formations that have rarely been seen before, and means the tour of the caves is now better than ever!

It may be worth checking out Wookey Hole Caves's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Wookey Hole Caves before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.

...got any top tips?
Whether you visit in the summer or winter it is wise to allow more than three hours for the complete tour of the caves, valley and mill. Due to the number of steps and uneven terrain, buggies and small children need to be carried through the caves; you are welcome to use your buggy/pushchair everywhere else on site. We do hire out light weight buggies that are easy to carry around the caves and can be used everywhere.
