Cheddar Caves ‘Glow In The Dark’ Easter Egg Hunt

Cheddar Gorge & Caves, in Somerset, will be adding some extra sparkle to Easter, with a very special Easter Egg Hunt between March 24 and April 8.


The only trail of its kind in the UK, it will feature several clusters of large, glow-in-the-dark eggs that have been carefully placed (and partially concealed) in various nooks and crannies throughout the world-famous chambers of Gough’s Cave.


Spotting all of the bright and shiny eggs, and taking note of all the different colours, will prove to be a “hard-boiled” challenge for even the most observant of visitors – but kids and families who manage to “crack” the mystery code and hand-in a completed trail sheet will be rewarded at the end of the trail with a suitably chocolatey treat.


Participants will also be urged to keep their eyes peeled for Richard Gough’s magical Golden Egg during the Hunt.  Rumour has it that this one has been hidden in the caves since Gough excavated it in Victorian times.


The glowing eggs and other illuminations for the Easter period will help to add to the magical atmosphere of the caves, which have been welcoming visitors underground for decades.


Younger visitors to Cheddar Gorge & Caves this Easter will also have the chance to be creative in the Museum of Prehistory, where they can make their own Easter decoration to take home.


The Explorer Ticket – which includes Gough’s Cave, Dreamhunters, The Museum of Prehistory, Cliff-top Gorge Walk and the new Beyond-the-View experience is priced at: Adults £19.95 (online £16.95); Children (5-15) £14.95 (online £12.70); Under 5s Free.
