Cheddar Caves & Gorge
Visit Somerset's Cheddar Caves & Gorge to discover cathedral-like caves carved by Ice Age meltwaters and meet the 9000-year-old Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest complete skeleton. A controversial exhibition brings the fascinating world of Stone Age Britain vividly to life.
This million-year-old river bed was discovered by Richard Gough in 1890. There are a host of attractions at Cheddar, including a tour through Gough's Cave (where the Cheddar Man was found), the Diamond Chamber and Solomon's Temple.
