Cheddar Gorge & Cheddar Village

After breakfast we commence the main Gorge walk where we will experience the Cheddar Gorge in all its spectacular glory. Our route of varied terrain takes us up over 100m to the top of the gorge where we walk along open and grassy paths with stunning views over the gorge with its crags and rocks formed millions of years ago. From here we will also be treated to fabulous views over Glastonbury Tor and the Mendip Hills enjoying the natural habitat, home to goats, soay sheep, deer and falcons. We then descend a long flight of steps enjoying further views back down to Cheddar village for a well- earned rest and refreshment (at own cost).

Weston Super-Mare

This morning we meet our guide at our hotel and embark on our final morning walk of the weekend, taking in the sights, history and points of interest of Weston Super-Mare. The morning walk looks at Knightstone Island and it’s history before walking along the seafront to Birnbeck Pier then up to Weston Woods, situated high behind the hotel, to Worlebury Camp Hillfort, an Iron Age Encampment. On the way back down to the town we pass a plaque which records that Dwight D Eisenhower camped there with American Troops preparing for the D Day Landings in 1944. We also look at Street Art by local artist JPS who paints in the style of Banksy.
