Finally headed to the caves to check out what it was all about and wasn't disappointed. Had a brilliant guide full of fun and enthusiasm for what has happened here. Incredible history and a little scary at times. Well worth the £8 I think it was to get in. Great fun.

He enjoyed trying to scare us all. Such good fun. We also enjoyed lunch in the café which is very reasonably priced and enjoyable. The Caves... More

I've been there at least 7 times. It's great fun and kids over 8 will love it. It's an inter-active way to learn about some really interesting history too.

Our group consisted of all adults and so there were no problems with everyone keeping their heads together.Our guide was friendly and funny saying that he loved the place personally and visited...

Third tour in forty years first with a crowd, 27 years ago a crowd and my German Shepherd (note dogs no longer allowed).

Visited the caves for the first time yesterday with my mum and my partner. We were part of a small group but our guide, Peter, nonetheless gave a great tour. I found the tour interesting and exciting, a good amount of history and anecdotes with just a few ghost stories! Really enjoyable tour... even if my mum found it a... More

Tours start on the hour promptly. There is ample parking. There are discounts for senior citizens. My husband had been to the caves for a concert when he was a student in the 60s. Two of our daughters and our five year old grandson accompanied us. Our tour at 3pm on a Saturday was probably at its maximum so about... More

Have been several times over the years as a kid myself and taking my young ones and now old ones. Tour is a little less exciting these days now doubt due to Health and Safety but still interesting.

Always wanted to go to the caves and when I had a friend over from USA with two kids aged 12 and 7, I thought it would be a great opportunity! Easy to find - just around the corner from Chislehurst railway station and a great big brown sign. As I approached, a group of youngsters were dressed up as... More
