Local nameCox's Cave and The Crystal Quest
LocationCheddar, Somerset, United Kingdom

Cox's Cave is in Cheddar Gorge on the Mendip Hills, in Somerset, England. It is open to the public as a show cave.

The cave is named after mill owner George Cox who discovered it in 1837, while quarrying limestone for a new building.

Cox immediately opened it as a show cave the following year and ran it as a private enterprise until landowner, Thomas Thynne, 5th Marquess of Bath, took it over at the beginning of the 20th century. It was connected by a tunnel to the adjacent artificial Pavey's Cave in 1987.The cave consists of seven small grottoes, joined by low archways.
