Wookey Hole is a group of linked chambers cut into the rock by the River Axe. One of the chambers is huge, and has been likened to St Paul's Cathedral. The acoustics are great, but I didn't like the idea of hundreds of tons of rock above me, with no visible support to the roof.
Legend has it that a woman thought to be a witch lived in the village, and when driven out went to live with her dog inside the cave. Eventually the villagers called a monk to try and drive her out. he succeeded in driving her down the steps to Hell where she and her dog were turned to stone. her profile can be seen in the rock.
Because there is a suitable venue nearby, a theme park has been set up featuring neanderthal men and dinosaurs. there is the history of the circus inside the mill, and also a Pirate ship and barbecue area outside. All tourist traps, but loved by children.
- Pros:interesting caves
- Cons:the theme parks /attractions
