Cheddar, of course, is well known for it's famous cheese however, perhaps lesser known, is the Cheddar Gorge which has a series of caves that are well-laid out for tourist visits. If driving, it is recommended that you park on the bottom of the gorge and take a bus that offers frequent service up the gorge to the caves and other attractions. Beautiful views are available by walking along the path that snakes it's way along the top of the gorge (it is also accessible via a staircase along the gorge road itself).

There are a fair number of tourist shops but a reasonable price can be had for tea and a light meal. Do not forget to sample (if not buy at the inflated prices) the cheese.
