“With famous landmarks such as Jacob’s Ladder and a three mile clifftop walk to take in the views of Somerset, this wintery walk deserves its 4.5-star rating from Tripadvisor and is perfect for the avid explorer.”

A limestone gorge, Cheddar Gorge is one of the UK’s most impressive natural wonders. Britain’s oldest human skeleton, the Cheddar Man, was found there in 1903.

At nearby Gough’s Cave, tourists will find mysterious chambers that have been there for more than 500,000 years.
