Walkers are Welcome Towns by Name
Accredited since: 2015
Cheddar has a wonderful varied landscape with flatter walks down on “The Levels” and more ambitious walks up on to the hills. We have 18 walks on our list ranging from a historic walk of Cheddar at 1 mile to a 20 mile section of the Mendip Way. And of course we include our most popular walk – Cheddar Gorge Circular walk, a 2.5 hour walk with great views: to Wales, Exmoor and Glastonbury Tor, and for those with a head for heights, down in to the gorge itself.
Visitors can now find all our walks in printed version for a modest charge at the newly launched Visitor Information Centre in the Lower Gorge (near the main caves entrance). This is a wholly volunteer-led initiative which Cheddar Walking fully supports.
Following the success of the second ‘National Trust Outdoor Festival’, held in Cheddar, there is now a annual summer festival: the Top of the Gorge Festival. Lots of outdoor activities to sample and certainly some excellent walks led by Cheddar Walking.
