Wookey Hole Caves is based in Wells, Somerset. Around 50 minutes from Bristol on a good day. We stayed at a Campsite locally last year and said we must visit again to go to the caves so that’s exactly what we did this Summer.
Wookey Hole Caves have expanded a lot over the years, or at least from what I can remember from visiting when I was younger. As well as the caves there are many other things to do that are all included in the cost of the ticket which make it great value for money. Tickets start at £17.95 and under 3s are free.
The main caves are a must see (of course) and even Arthur at 2.5 found these fascinating. Although I will say he started to get a little restless towards the end of the tour (it takes about an hour). During the tour you explore through the different chambers, tunnels and walkways. There is also the option to do the “Wild Wookey Experience” which is an abseiling experience through the caves. Definitely not for the faint hearted!
other attractions at the caves
As you exit the caves you walk through the Dinosaur Grove where you can get up close and personal with life-size dinosaurs, some of which move and make noises. Little ones can then take part in a fossil dig to discover dinosaur remains. You can then make your way towards the 4D cinema (now showing Scoob) and the Cave Diving Museum. There are currently Circus Shows on weekends and throughout the holidays. We visited on a Friday so unfortunately missed these.
The last attractions (again, all included in the ticket cost) are the Old Penny Arcade, Mirror Maze, Soft Play and Adventure Golf. Arthur spent a lot of time in the soft play, there is a little toddler area but he decided he was way too grown up for this and made his way right to the top of the main soft play area and down the slide, multiple times. The final thing we did was Adventure Golf, not that easy with a toddler but we still enjoyed ourselves. Arthur was determined he was going to hit the ball in every hole himself so it took much longer than needed it.
