My dad took my brother and me to chislehurst caves recently because we were all sitting at home bored and we didn't want to go out to the usual cinema trip or something else that we usually do When I saw the chislehurst caves online I thought it looked different and interesting, and it really was The navigator for the...

A group of friends visited the caves on a sunday....what a great surprise, the tour was really interesting and the guide was great. The cafe could have had more cakes or snacks but what we had was OK. A really good day out but the website needs serious work as it did not let us know this

A really interesting place to visit. The guided tour was informative and it was nice to hear the history of how it was used in the war. Place was a little spooky!!!! Dress appropriately - it's quite cold down there and the floor is uneven. Great for me to visit again - the last time I was there was for... More

I agree with 'Disappointed'...in fact I am thinking we could have been on the same tour. Our young student guide with red hair rushed through the tour, spent most of the time talking about herself, the colour of her kitchen walls and slating her parents, told us how she was annoyed with little kids on the tours who kept pointing...

Searching for a day out we stumbled on the Chislehurst Caves Easy reach of London and Kent Awesome guide gave us an insight into the caves, there are some great models to help you get an idea of the life in the caves. Outside the caves is a pleasant restaurant giving reasonably priced snacks.

I have driven past the entrance to Caveside Close for twenty years and today I visited for the first time for my father's 74th Birthday. The caves are an old chalk mine and it's quite fascinating walking round with the old oil lamp searching for carvings on the walls. The tour guide a young lady with red hair was a... More

A fun kind of quirky tour of these old workings that have layers of history. Its a perfect rainy Sunday afternoon trek out of town thats not too far and Chiselhurst Station which is very close by is Zone 5. We actually went on a scorching day and it was nice and cool down there. All kind of weird stories... More

Really interesting guided tour into the history and myth surrounding the man-made Chislehurst Caves - travelling through the Druid, Roman, Saxon to modern day eras the guide explains what went on in the caves and has some excellent ghost stories to keep you wondering what else is out there in the dark! Really enjoyed the visit and would definitely return!
