Join a glow-in-the-dark Egg Hunt inside Cheddar Caves

Cheddar Gorge & Caves in Somerset will be staging an Easter Egg Hunt with a difference this April.


Set to run from April 1 to 23, the hunt will feature several clusters of glow-in-the-dark coloured eggs that have been carefully placed at various places throughout the world famous 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 task and hand-in a completed form will be rewarded at the end of the trail with a suitably chocolatey treat.


Participants should also keep an eye out for Richard Gough’s special Golden Egg; anyone able to take a ‘selfie’ with this hard-to-find egg could be in with a chance of winning a host of special prizes.


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.


Admission is included within the cost of the Explorer Ticket which includes access to Cheddar Gorge and Caves (Dreamhunters, Gough’s Cave, The Museum of Prehistory, the Lookout Tower, Cliff-top Gorge Walk and Gorge Open-Top Bus) and is priced at: Adults £19.95 (online £16.95); Children (5-15) £13.95 (online £11.85); Under 5s Free.


Other Easter activities for visitors to Cheddar Gorge & Caves will include a craft activity at the exit to Dreamhunters, and Stone Age Survival activities at the Museum.
