This is my second time in the cave. It is a secret treasure. The tour (in the cave) takes around 50mins. It would be difficult if you are in a wheelchair or with very young children in pushchairs due to uneven surface. It's a bit cold so wear a jumper. I love the stories and the explanations. I paid just... More

Luckily we happened to stumble across the caves on the Internet, having never heard of them before. My partner and I were pleasantly surprised to find the whole experience professionally organised, informative and fun. The honeycomb of caves really are an interesting construction and quite intimidating at 22 miles in length. The addition of authentic paraffin lanterns was a great... More

I was told about these caves by a friend. I was keen to see it and we took the children who loved the history of the caves and at times the eeriness of it. I would definitely recommend this trip as another addition to our colourful history and our sheer determination to succeed.

Really enjoyed the visit to the caves. Lots to learn. But we all felt we were rushed through, the tour lasted just 40 mins. Not the hour we expected. We barely had time to stop, look and take photos. We would have liked to have more time to see everything. Because our group was so large, we found it difficult... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the one hour tour of the caves. The guide was very funny and extremely informative. I was amazed at the history of the caves and how they had been utilized over the centuries. Well worth the visit as its unique and fun.

The tour of the caves is very informative. It starts every hour and we made the mistake of turning up at 11:15 so we had to wait 45 minutes. The tour is about an hour long. The guide puts you in a corner of a cave with the group (if you want to) and lets you experience what it would... More

An hour long guided tour of the caves takes you down through parts of the 22 mile labyrinth of tunnels and passage ways. The guide tells you the history of the caves and the uses during the war. Plus a few spooky stories along the way. We went on a rainy Sunday morning. The tours are every hour on the... More

We decided to visit the caves yesterday as a daytrip from London. I really enjoy caves and found the history of these very interesting. They were used as air raid shelters during WW2 and also used for rock concerts. Our guide Darren was very good but i noticed the group we went down the caves with didnt seem very interested... More

If like me you love caves, this is a really interesting and fun tour to do. I had Terry for a guide and he was thoroughly into his job and informative about the caves and its history. It's a beautiful cave, and also the largest dark cave I have visited to date. At one point there will be no light... More
