WHERE YOU CAN WATCH US MAKE CHEESE ‘LIVE’ BETWEEN 11.30AM AND 3PM
(£2.50 FOR ADULTS, CHILDREN UNDER 16 FREE)
No need to pre-book individual visits these days; just turn up!
FOR GROUPS OF 20 OR MORE, WE CHARGE JUST £2 PER ADULT. PRE-BOOKING FOR LARGE GROUPS IS ESSENTIAL TO ENSURE WE HAVE SPACE FOR YOU.
Our VISITOR CENTRE is situated across our courtyard from our shop in Cheddar Gorge where the cheese making process can be watched ‘LIVE’ every day. The real-time cheese making takes around 8 hours from start to finish, so the ‘live’ action will depend on what time you visit. We’ll run our company film while you’re here too, so you will ‘see’ the whole process from start to finish whatever time you visit! The film takes around 15 minutes but you’re welcome to watch our cheesemaker for as long as you like. Your visit may then be followed by cheese tasting in our shop!
Dogs: We welcome Guide Dogs of course, but unfortunately, due to the nature of what we do in our Visitor Centre, we are unable to allow any animals into this area. We do have a courtyard where you can sit with your pets.
We have a coach drop off and pick up point only directly outside our shop. Several coaches use this parking bay during the day so it is important that coach drivers do not leave their coaches parked here for the duration of the visit. Coaches can be parked further up the Gorge but that may be subject to a parking charge by The Cheddar Gorge Caves.
