Wookey Hole Caves

Since prehistoric times, groups have been drawn to Wookey Hole Caves for their offer of shelter, warmth, protection and in more modern times; exploration, marvel and sheer curiosity. Wookey Hole is home to the largest cave system in the UK and with each cavern laced with beautiful formations formed through water movements over millions of years, it is no wonder people have been visiting these caves long before the Victorian era. Treat your party to an Exclusive Tour of the Caves and experience one of the finest natural wonders on Earth. The infamous Witch of Wookey awaits you…

The Paper Mill boasts a rich heritage which has survived for over 1,000 years. The earliest Mill recorded at the site of Wookey Hole is noted in the Domesday Book of 1086. By 1610, records show that The Mill was already producing paper. Situated perfectly at the mouth of the valley and with the powerful, natural water source of the River Axe flowing out from deep within the caves, this rural location has been at the heart of English Paper Making for over four hundred years.
