My husband and I visited Wooky Hole on a Monday afternoon. It was extremely quiet but the staff were very friendly. I was worried there wouldn't be enough to keep us entertained but I was pretty impressed. The cave tour was interesting and the lights/music added to the fun. There is a good pirate crazy golf too, a 4d ride/film,... More

We visited Wookey Hole Caves many years ago but, being in the area recently, decided to go again. My, how it's changed! The tour through the caves was definitely aimed at children.....as an adult I would have preferred to linger for a closer look at the rock formations etc but we were moved on pretty quickly. Still a good place... More

I hadn't been here since I was a child and wanted to take my family. I was worried it had been turned into a theme park but I should've had faith because though it has changed it is for the better. Very interesting and informative in the style of a museum. I was so glad we visited!

I hadn't been here since school so was really looking forward to seeing the place after nearly 40 years. The caves didn't disappoint. They are amazing and the guide was informative and fun. Some young children may be scared though as a couple found out to their cost after only 5 minutes. The tour last about 40-45 minutes. The rest... More

This tourist attraction is seriously over-rated with whatever natural beauty these caves once had having been long destroyed by the large number of people who tramp through these caves. Don't be fooled by the talk of 20 attractions. Fairy land consisted of a couple of Garden gnomes. The Victorian arcade were 1p machines that would only accept special tokens which... More

Caves, as always, are stunning. However, having a few years break since last visit, was encouraged to see the website with its claims of 'attractions' and thought we'd have a day out - or at least a good few hours. The caves are great - 40 minutes very well spent. The attractions (which if you see the website give you... More

Good day out which takes a while to get around so it's quite good value for money. The ice cream parlour were selling tickets so we got our tickets and started the cave tour. The guide was excellent and gave lots of history. I did feel that the tour had got shorter though as swear a few years back there... More

Quite interesting and we visited with my grandchild aged 3.5. Would imagine this is quite hard going in the summer months when it gets busy. In March we had a small tour group and we could access the facilities easily

We spent all day at wookey hole, I was a bit concerned as there was some very mixed reviews but we had a great time even though it was raining! My little people (10 & 6) loved the soft play and circus especially, they were a bit nervous about going in the caves to begin with but our guide was... More

We stayed in a Lodge and got free entrance to the Wookey Hole attraction. Glad we visited, all attractions open bar all of the eateries and shops but the caves tour was amazing and we also highly enjoyed the 4D cinema. Some of the park is looking a bit tired and could use a paint (the dinosaur models) but if... More
