You will be hard put to spend more than a couple of hours at this attraction as the tour lasts about 50 minutes and there is a small, but interesting, exhibition and collection of photos relating ot the history of the caves. Having said that, as a visit, I can't think of anything I could fault. Accompanied by my 9... More

Really disappointed with our trip this week. Was really hoping to find out so much about the caves yet come away knowing no more than before the visit. Why? The tour consisted of a large group of circa 40 people and a tour guide with the quietest voice. We tried our utmost to get close enough to the guide to... More

We visited the Chislehurst Caves yesterday and took a tour of the caves. Our guide was Darren and he led us on a merry adventure in these pretty awesome caves where people hid during firebombing in World War I and II...and was later a venue for such bands as The Who, and Jimi Hendrix.and so many more... If you get... More

Brilliant trip recommended to anyone. Guide escorted tour through a selection of 22 miles of caves. Amazing sights such as an underground church. Guide brilliant. Didn't Rush the tour and made the experience interesting for children and adults alike. Don't forget to take a jumper!

Did this on a wet holiday day and was lucky enough to arrive 10 minutes before a tour started. In a party of 2 adults and 4 children, everyone stayed interested although at times our guide used too much cockney ryming slang which the children couldnt follow and was far too gruesome for the younger ones when describing a human...

We had a really interesting tour of the caves, the guide was great and had a lot of information for us about the different uses of the caves throughout history.

We visited with two young children (7&4). They were both a little apprehensive but once in the caves were totally fine. The tour guide was ok but he kept using Cockney rhyming slang which on the first time of using it was amusing but on the umpteenth time of using it started to get a little wearing and some people...

We visited the caved yesterday, 4 adults and 6 under 6. The place is easy to find and has ample parking. The staff are helpful and the tour guide was brilliant, really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It kept all the children amused. It is very dark and quite cold but they do tell you about this on the website so we... More

Fantastic value for money. I went with my 6 year old today, it was fascinating, informative and slightly spooky. We spent most of the rest of today discussing it. So nice to go somewhere that's not too commercialised. Can't wait to go again.
