Been along to the caves a few times taking various visitor that come to stay, interesting to quite a wide age range of kids. The guide most recently did a particularly good job

I visited the caves after my ousemate gave a raving review of how informative and enjoyable her experience was. Not wanting to spoil the "fun" for others intending to go, I won't go into details about the tour itself, so I will say this... Upon entering into the main entrance, we saw various memorabilia from what looked ike wartime Britain,... More

This is a fun way to spend an hour or so and worth the £6 entry fee. Lots to look at and learn about the history of the caves. Kids will love this experience so long as they are not afraid of the dark. Make sure you wear sensible footwear and something to keep you warm.

An extremely interesting tour with a large party of friends. Superb guide who was very informative and fun. Will be going back for sure. Made to feel very welcome in the cafe, where an excellent buffet was served. Great food.

This was only short train ride from Central London but felt more like an adventure. The Caves were great fun to explore (with torches and friendly guide) with a fascinating history - as well as all sorts of ghost stories! They have a lovely little cafe but there is also a great pub on the short walk back to the... More

The cave tour was excellent and value for money. Sadly the cafe attached to the caves let the side down. The lattes were cold and the beef burgers were cold. Whilst there we witnessed a young couple have the humiliation of being accused of not paying for their child's birthday food. They had paid a substantial amount of money for... More

I remember going there many years ago to parties - in fact went to the last ever party there as a wedding reception for a vampire themed wedding reception - quite a thrill ! Nevertheless this is a great tour and good to hear the history and the haunted story - lights out does give you a shiver. Go and... More

I fancied a day out instead of wasting my weekend in front of tv-and glad I went. There were some minor irritations but I was in a highly critical mood! Plenty of parking which was just as well as even on this rainy Sunday the caves were popular-guess that's as the weather won't affect you that far underground. The cafe... More
