All the instructors are over the moon at winning the Visit England Experience of the Year Award 2020 on Monday 17th August as it completes a hat trick of Gold Awards gained within the last twelve months. Creative overseer, Christopher Binding and his team, designed and developed Wild Wookey which they describe as "a world class adventure caving experience unlike anything seen in the UK before now, involving abseiling, crawling, traversing, river crossing in the famous Wookey Hole boat, rifts, huge chambers, amazing sights, exquisite grottoes, sliding, climbing and a zip line exit". Works began only on 2016 so it has gone from strength to strength and gained Trip Advisor Certificates of Excellent/Travellers' Choice status as well as winning a New Business award in 2018. Further explorations and development works mean it's always exciting at Wookey Hole and the adventure caving crew have lots of ideas up their sleeves! 

Daniel Medley Managing Director Wookey Hole has said: "I am so proud of the team with what is now a hattrick of awards, seeing the team win this huge award is a culmination of years of hard work and dedication in getting Wild Wookey where it is today, led by the very dedicated Chris Attmere Tocco. The award really does celebrate all of the team’s achievements in making Wild Wookey possibly the biggest caving experience in the UK. We have so many plans for the caves, this recent success will only go to cementing the confidence our visitors have in us to deliver huge value-added experience’s”.    

John Turner CEO Visit Somerset said; "Somerset at one point was seen as second rate in relation to Devon and Cornwall in terms of first-rate visitor experiences. Not now! It is because of the entrepreneurial skill of Daniel Medley, Chris Attmere and his team that we can offer something truly unique and exciting such as Wild Wookey, that has not only captured the imaginations of our visitors but also the judges in this year’s Visit England Awards winning Gold. I am incredibly proud of the team and their dedication and persistence in wanting to deliver excellence and unrivalled professionalism with an incredible experience helping secure the county’s position being now on a par with Devon and Cornwall. Well done all, you have much to be proud of.”
