SOLD OUT Cheddar Gorge (Canyon) & Cheddar Cheese - hike and day trip
Time & Location
About the Event
Length: 9 miles - 13 kilometres circular walk
Total Ascent: 500 metres
Who needs Grand Canyon? At almost 400ft (122m) deep and 3 miles long, this is England’s largest canyon, and with its weathered crags and pinnacles, one of our most spectacular natural sites.
It plays host to a varied community of specialised plants and wildlife, many of which you’ll get to spot on this exhilarating circular walk. And of course, we will do a quick stop to buy some cheddar cheese from its original place of birth if the shop is open.
Trip cost includes return travel on a minibus and hike in the Cheddar Gorge!
How gorgeous! We meet at the agreed time, drive for 2.5 - 3 hours to Cheddar Gorge where we hike for 5 hours then return home. We will make a stop at a service station for toilet and food supplies.
The fee is non-refundable, but you may resell and we can try to find someone to take your place.

9 pm This is a long day out, so it is best to not have any plans for afterwards to avoid disappointment.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a road trip using our minibus. The estimated arrival time at Cheddar might be later depending on traffic. There’s little that we can do about traffic, so please be patient. We will do an extra toilet stop if needed.
