Wookey Hole Caves

Wookey Hole Caves

Things To Do

Somerset may seem a quiet and tranquil county but don't be fooled...deep underground you'll find a series of showcaves, a mysterious river and a history laced with pagan and Christian legends. These legendary show caves are home to a mysterious underground river, rumours of a witch and a fascinating history.

OK, so Wookey Hole Caves aren’t quite a Weston-super-Mare family attraction, but they’re just a 40 minute drive away and well worth the journey. The caves have a human history that goes back more than 50,000 years, and if you believe the legends you'll see the Witch's kitchen, which was once home to a witch in the Dark Ages.

When anything went awry in the nearby village the witch was held accountable and the locals eventually sent a daring monk inside to help them. It's said that the pair began a battle of wills, before the monk blessed the water and threw it over the witch - immediately turning her to stone. Don't believe us? Look out for her stoney form in the caves when you visit.

Visitors can roam the caves once home to early man, and discover how they’ve shaped Somerset’s history, beliefs and present. Book your tickets online and save 15%!
