Top of the Gorge festival, 14-16 June 2019

On the weekend of 14-16 June 2019, Top of the Gorge festival takes place for its second year on a spectacular site overlooking Cheddar Gorge.

Welcoming campers and day visitors alike, Top of the Gorge festival is a carnival of outdoor adventure, entertainment, inspiration and fantastic local food and drink.
The pop-up campsite looks right through the jaws of the gorge towards the Somerset coast, and activities include trail running, mountain biking, climbing, caving, walking, archery, food foraging, campfire cooking, star gazing and much more. 

Cheddar Gorge is one of England's most iconic and spectacular landscapes. We are really proud to own the north side of this spectacular gorge and we hope that you will enjoy exploring it in a way that suits you.
