Wookey Hole Caves details...

Great day out in Somerset with tickets including admission to the spectacular cave system, Valley of the Dinosaurs, mirror maze, 4D cinema and much more.

With over 20 fantastic attractions included in your ticket, a trip to Wookey Hole Caves near Wells makes a great family day out in Somerset, whatever the weather.

Join a guided tour leading you deep into the Mendip Hills, through the largest cave system in the United Kingdom. Explore a series of limestone caverns with the River Axe flowing through them. Listen to the legends that surround the site and learn about its history. Highlights include the Witch’s Kitchen and famous Witch of Wookey, who lived alone in the caves and was blamed for local misfortunes. Hear how a monk turned her to stone and see her frozen figure. Venture into Cathedral Cave with green water, stalactite formations and walls red with iron oxide.

The Caves are just the start of your visit to Wookey Hole! Head to The Monster Mill and find a host of other attractions and family activities to enjoy before you leave. The Cave Museum has displays providing further insight into the caves, and information on archaeological excavations and cave diving. Stop off at the Victorian Hand-made Paper Mill and see paper being made the traditional way.

There are indoor play areas, a Victorian Penny Arcade and the Magical Mirror Maze, where you’ll come across over 40 mirrors. Some mirrors are trick mirrors, giving momentary sightings of a wizard, trapped by the Wookey Witch. Try out the air jet blasters and cannons in the Pirate Zap Zone or indulge in a game of Pirate Island Adventure Golf that’s sure to bring out the competitive streak in you.

Walk through the prehistoric landscape of the Valley of the Dinosaurs, home to more than 20 life-size dinosaurs, or relax in the Mystic Fairy Garden in the company of elves, fairies and dragons.

Allow time for a family adventure in the 4D Cinema – just check the website to find out what’s on when you’re visiting and look forward to feeling part of the action. Circus Shows usually run at weekends and in the school holidays. There are even circus skills workshops for youngsters.

Enjoy a picnic or alternatively treat the family to a snack in Captain Jack’s Restaurant. Birthday parties can be arranged and made extra special by the chance to meet the Wookey Witch, Wookey party bags and circus workshops.

Wookey Hole is about 20 miles from Bristol, Bath and Weston-super-Mare. Tickets can be bought online in advance and discounts may be available.
