Nice to see.how they made paper that could last 500+ years. The kids can have a go at making paper from pulp. You can see some of the machines and the different types of paper used. All original on the site.

The day we visited, this attraction was closed. It was Father's Day on one of the hottest days of the year. There was literally no one about. The place was deserted- no staff, no visitors.

Had a great time here. The guide was very informative and asked me if I wanted to make some paper, which I did. Lots of fun and really interesting.

Why charge for entry, include all the fun things to do, then not staff the attractions?? This was just an empty room when we walked through. We had gone on a very quiet day, hardly any visitors, almost had the place to ourselves, which was...More

A very interesting part of the Wookey Hole experience. Our 11yr old son was asked to join the presenter in the making of some paper which he really enjoyed. They have done a great job keeping this old time tradition alive :)
