Found the caves listed in a Kent promotion leaflet. Decided to visit on way home to Somerset and was not disappointed. Our guide, Peter, was very enthusiastic about the caves history and as our group was only 8 made it made it a very pleasant experience experience. The tour took about an hour and was very good value for money.... More

Much of the caves have been closed off now due to people getting lost in them. Built by the Druids then extended by the Romans, this is a treat of a day. Go during bad weather because it's all underground :)

Wonderful attraction if you are a history fan. Very interesting tour. Has a tendency to be quite scary so if you go with small children please speak to the tour guide if they are afraid of the dark. Very fairly priced gift shop. This tour is a must at some point.

I've been to these caves quite a few times and really enjoyed it. The kids remember it fondly too. I particularly liked the part about the bomb evacuees moving in during WW2 and being sad to leave. The guides are usually very entertaining and I recommend you ask them about the Chislehurst Challenge if you enjoy a scary story!

Chislehurst Caves is good value for money. The tour guide was knowledgable and came across as genuinely interested in the caves. Which really adds to the whole experience. The caves are dark but not to bad and lanterns are provide to everyone. Certainly suitable for children. I have done as yours now and it would be great to visit other... More

I had friends over from Australia who wished to do something 'different'. I took them to the Caves which they thought were brilliant. The guide was fantastic, the tour was great and we all had a good time. The entrance fee was extremely reasonable - from £6 adults and £4 for children. We picked up a few gifts, enjoyed some...

A very impressive set of tunnels and a local attraction with very reasonable prices and tours leaving every half hour or so. The café itself is well stocked and boasts a variety of homemade cakes and coffees, which was great as we were waiting for our group leader to arrive. We had a wonderful tour guide, however, what disappointed me... More

This is a super place to visit. Only 5 minutes from the train station. Guides are very entertaining and there is a surprising amount of history and stories. You need to be quite careful walking as the ground is uneven. Useful rubbishy gift shop but nice little cafe area for fast food and coffee and outdoor area if weather is... More

Underwhelming. Complacent tour guide could'nt be bothered to give much enthusiasm with his tour. Didnt really hear what he was saying about the history of the place. The 'Drum' bit was pretty horrible and unexpected. Few children didnt like that. Dated facilities. Inconcise initial explaination as to the history of the caves eg. They were created in this year by... More
