The Ghost of Cheddar Man at Cheddar Gorge & Caves – 21st to 29th October

This October half-term, visit Cheddar Gorge for The Ghost of Cheddar Man festivities.

Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest complete skeleton (he's very old.... 10,000 years!) was found here in Gough's Cave, 120 years ago. To celebrate this anniversary, Cheddar Groge are hosting a special 'Day of the Dead' inspired event.

To get an invite you must join the trail and track down Cheddar Man's friends dotted around Gough’s Cave. Once you’ve spotted them all, you’ll gain entry to The Ghost of Cheddar Man celebrations. There's even a reward to take home with you!

The home of Halloween – 21st to 29th October at Wookey Hole

Attention all Witches and wizards! Prepare to dive headfirst into the enchanting realm of Halloween magic at Wookey Hole, the home of Halloween.

The Witch of Wookey Hole has invited her family home for the holiday, turning Wookey Hole into a bustling coven of magical beings. But fear not, for these spellcasters prefer to treat children, rather than eat them!

Start your adventure with a tour through the great chambers of Wookey Hole Caves, where you’ll learn about the legend of the Witch and see where the most delicious cheese you can imagine is matured.

Once out of the caves, everyone can join in the Giant Pumpkin trail and solve a mystery to win Halloween treats for the kids. Next head to the 4D cinema, where Mystery Inc. will be solving a mystery of their own in the Scoob! 4D Experience.

Delve into the mysterious past of Wookey Hole, in the Museum, where you can even handle the bones of some of the surprising creatures who have called the Valley home.
