This was my 12 year old daughter's choice for an outing. We used this as part of our London Pass. The train runs from Waterloo to Chislehurst pretty regularly. You can use your Oyster Card or Britrail pass to get there. A short walk from the train station and tours leave on the hour and take about 45 minutes. It... More

We visited as a couple about 20 years ago and have always wanted to come back and bring our children. We finally got round to doing this at last! Being teenagers now, we find them difficult to impress, however they both really enjoyed it. I think personally the guide did not bring out the atmosphere as much as the guide... More

I used my London Pass to visit this place in early January. It was fantastic that it was open at that time of year. I caught the train out from London, which was an interesting experience in itself, but very easy to get to. The tour goes for around an hour and our guide was great. They were still doing... More

I went with my 11 year old niece and we both loved this, Getting there is easy enough and the tour itself went on for well over an hour. For what you get form this, the money spent was nothing to worry about. I'd certainly recommend it. There is a notable potential for a bash on the head, or a... More

I went to visit Chislehurst Caves with my mum and my 3 boys (Aged 12,10 and 8). The tour of the caves start on the hour so we had to wait a litlle for the tour to start. The tour lasted for around and hour the guide was funny and very friendly. He told many stories of the different areas... More

Came here with a 18 and 20 year old, they loved it. I can't believe such a brilliant place is situated where it is, the kids and I had such fun. Totally recommended. A hidden treasure

Excellent value for money. A fantastic afternoon out at the caves. Our tour guide was fantastic and obviously very much enjoyed his job. He was very knowledgeable and engaging for any children in our group. The tour was just over a hour long, and I honestly enjoyed every minute of it, I would 100% recommend this trip.

Last went here maybe 45 years ago as a child, so decided it was time to pay another visit. The caves offer a fascinating insight to the way people spent there nights here during the bombing raids in the 2nd world war. Our guide was Jeff, who was funny and very knowledgeable about the history of the caves. The tour... More

We recently went to the caves and had a fascinating, fun and informative tour. The guide was funny, well informed and created a genuinely interesting tour for both myself and my five year old son. The tour takes you through all three sections of the caves (druid, Roman and Saxon) and includes a moment of pitch darkness. Thoroughly recommended.

Worth a visit if you have not been but not as impressive as caves elsewhere. However, the lovely memory of school visits and visits as a young child were evoked....although the caves are now better kept and information about them more readily available. Obviously not a place for claustrophobes but speleologists will perhaps expect more ( Europe having more stunning... More
