Nestled between lush and rugged cliffs, Cheddar Gorge is a prehistoric marvel that brims with exciting, modern attractions. The spectacular natural landmark sits just outside of the quaint village of Cheddar in England, which is filled with family-friendly activities, stunning natural scenery, historic tours, and charming shops! Cheddar Gorge is the country’s largest canyon, and there are plenty of beautiful walking trails and heart-pumping climbing routes where you can take in the dramatic crags and cliffs of the Mendip Hills. You can even climb the 247 steps to the top of Lookout Tower for breathtaking panoramas of the gorge! Below ground, you can meander among the otherworldly formations in the Cheddar Caves, or dive deeper into the underground systems on an adventure caving tour. Cheddar Man, Britain’s oldest skeleton, was found in the gorge, and you can learn more about the country’s past in the Museum of Prehistory or in the multimedia experience Dreamhunters: The Adventures of Early Man. Of course, no trip to the area would be complete without taste-testing the eponymous cheese in the Cheddar Gorge Cheese Company! With intriguing museums, amazing scenery, and more, Cheddar Gorge is filled with unbeatable attractions. Start exploring today, and check out these 10 Airbnb vacation rentals!
