There is a small car park right by the gorge but it can be visited also as part of longer walks from Wells. It is looked after by the National Trust. A quiet spot with different walks depending upon your fitness levels.

The walk down through the middle of the gorge involves clambering down some steep rock ravines. It was dry for us but could be difficult when wet.

We walked a circular route from Wells that took in the Gorge. It was easy to climb and well sign posted through the Gorge. Include in any walk in the area.

A mile beyond Wookey Hole Caves, uphill on the right, access to the free car park for the variety of walks at Ebbor. Some of it is steep, but manageable even with regular shoes. With woods and long views, the walk can be as short...More

Great circular walk of about 4.5 miles, takes you through fields, woodland and the gorge, make sure you checkout the viewpoint before descending through the gorge

Difficult to find but well worth it. There are three marked walks with different levels of accessibility/difficulty. We selected the challenging route which entailed some clambering up rocky paths but the view from the top of the gorge definitely made up for it.
