Exploring the Caves at Wookey Hole! *REVIEW**

Last weekend we took James and Evelyn for a day out to Wookey Hole Caves. Located in Somerset in the South of England are Wookey Hole Caves a fantastic family day. 

Here you can visit the Wookey Hole caves and find out all about the history of these magical caves and caverns but that isn't where the fun ends. There is so much more to do at Wookey Hole including exploring the fairy and dinosaur gardens, mini pirate golf, paper making, penny arcades, mirror mazes, fantastic circus show, diving and paper mill museum and much more! 

We started our day out at the caves, the ques were relatively long but went down quickly meaning waiting time was minimal and a lot of the queuing area is undercover which was great for us as it was raining when we arrived.

Clearwell Caves Santa visit! **REVIEW**

Each year as Christmas approaches we take a trip to visit Santa. We visit somewhere different each year and make a day of it. This year we visited Clearwell Caves in Coleford. 

"Clearwell Caves are natural caves, extensively mined for iron ore to make some of Britain's most complex and oldest mine workings. The mine dates back well over 4,000 years, when early miners dug for ochre pigments to make paints. Iron ore miners later created a warren of underground passageways, by connecting huge caverns."

Each year at Clearwell Caves they put on the story of "The perfect christmas tree". The caves are decorated, illuminated and tell a magical christmas story for all to enjoy. Santa is also hidden among the caves for you to pay a visit mid way through your walk around the caves. 

James loves caves so we knew he would love the visit and the added bonus of Santa was sure to see him in excitement over drive lol! We certainly were not disappointed either.
