    Despite living only an hour away it's the first time we've been to Wookey Hole. We used Tesco Club Card vouchers so was not really bothered if it provided value for money or not. I have to say that th...  more »

    We visited the caves yesterday, and were given a very entertaining and informative tour by our excellent guide, Martin. He had a fund of interesting and amusing stories, and was also very knowledgeabl...  more »

    I have no idea why this place is getting negative comments - it was a fantastic day out and activities are laid on with a trowel. Also an investment of a few minutes online before visiting (even on th...  more »

  • We haven't even been into the caves today and are having an amazing time. The circus show was so good and entertaining that the performers have inspired my 8 year old to join up. The canon ball park is loads of fun, the mirrors made us laugh, the miniature circus models were intriguing for my son and there is still so much more to do. What a lovely day so far. I'd also like to mention the lovely lady at the ticket office who gave my son's donkey a free ticket/badge to come in. It is those kinds of touches that make a day special. Thank you Wookey Hole.
  • I was actually quite surprised when we came here after not hearing anything good about it. We thought it was great! The cave tour is actually really interesting, you wouldn't want to freely walk around as it could get dangerous quickly! It also holds the world's only (I forget what it's called) underground waterfall rock formation thing, quite a sight! Definitely worth a trip!
  • While there might not seem like there is a whole lot to do (especially for older visitors) The caves are incredible and the extra bits that are included in the price make it reasonable value IF of course, you happen to arrive early enough to actually enjoy them. Since it's the main attraction though, I kinda wish there was more to the caves. Mostly on places to go within them. I fully understand why that's not the case but it honestly feels a bit underwhelming especially after going through the caves in Cheddar. The 4D cinema was extremely cheesy at first but the actual movie itself was great fun and one of the most enjoyable 4D experiences i've had. I was not prepared for some of the events that occurred during it. My only real complaints are that the majority of the glasses you were given were in awful condition. To the point it distorted the screen slightly and this affected my whole family. My other complaint is the sound. The voices were nearly impossible to hear during the whole movie and I couldn't make out a single word that was said (my hearing is perfectly fine). Unfortunately this was all we were able to really do on our visit. This was likely due to it being a Sunday afternoon but all the attractions closed a lot earlier than we thought they would. I would strongly recommend visiting during late morning/early afternoon because of this. Overall though what we were able to experience was indeed fun and interesting. Just don't expect anything thrilling.
  • Stunning caves but not easy to navigate, the number of people in the guide tours was way too many and the footing is not lit up enough in the shadows of others. The difficulty of the guide wasn't made clear enough and if one has fears of any kind then there isn't a way of getting out or turning back. It is great for kids and able-bodied people. The dinosaur park once outside is amazing.
  • What else can I say. Worth every penny and i would pay more if the price ever increased! Great family day out.

Where to stay in Wells

Consider a hotel or B&B in the town center, which circles a Gothic cathedral. Accommodations near the Market Square are also within walking distance of the town's attractions. To save money, consider a cottage farther away from the center with a scenic view of the city.
