- So much more than a hole in the ground. But while we're on the subject of holes, one of the best things about Wookey (considering the vagaries of the British weather) is that all its myriad pleasures can be enjoyed throughout the year - there just isn't much weather underground. Formed by the action of the waters of the River Axe eroding the limestone, the caves have given shelter to man and his animals for some 50,000 years. No longer serving as houses and barns, they have a brilliant new lighting system to show off the many caverns, rock formations (including the famous Witch of Wookey, whose tale you will hear), stalactites and stalagmites, as you ramble walkways and bridges over the underground water course. During the half-mile tour with a knowledgeable guide, you will traverse 50,000 years of history and legend.
