Wookey Hole Caves

Wookey Hole Caves

A popular tourist attraction in the village of Wookey Hole in Somerset, just 20 miles (32km) from Bath, Wookey Hole Caves is an intermingling of pagan and Christian legends where a river flows out of the underworld. Children who visit the caves will be utterly thrilled by the mysteries of man and how early cavemen, who inhabited these eerie caves, lived. Many legends exist about a witch who inhabited the caves during the dark ages, and whose frozen image can still be seen in the cavern known as the Witches Kitchen, but this is not where to adventure ends. When your tour of the caves is done, kids can enjoy over 20 life-size dinosaurs in the Prehistoric Valley, relax with fairies, dragons and elves in the Fairy Garden, or visit the Monster Mill where a mirror maze, a spectacular lightshow, a cave museum and an old-fashioned penny arcade will provide plenty of fun. Wookey Hole is a great excursion for the whole family.
