By Rail

You first need to travel to Weston-Super-Mare (click here for train timetables). Thence proceed by bus 126 or taxi.

Cheddar’s own station on the Yatton to Wells line did not survive the Beeching axe of 1963 but station buildings remain in the village and much of the old line is now a long distance footpath.

By Bus

The main bus service in Cheddar is the 126 from Weston-Super-Mare station to Wells bus station. For more bus timetable details visit
