We visited the caves today and they were much better than we expected. The tour was really informative and the tour guide was very amusing. There was a nice little cafe that we had a nice tea and cake in. Would def recommend this to friends and family. Very inexpensive at £6 for an adult.

chislehurst caves is great fun day out,and if you look carefully you might see the ghost its in more than one part of the caves you can sense it.the only thing is when people take their own torches and start playing around it dazzles you a bit and can cause an accident also it spoils the tour.would recommend a vist.

We enjoyed a very interesting tour with our guide Peter. We were the only people on the tour but we did not feel rushed or that we had not seen everything in fact it took an hour for us to go round. Peter seemed to enjoy his job and had very good knowledg of the history of the caves. We... More

The tours are very good- I had almost as much fun as an adult as I did when I was in primary school! You can soak in a bit of (fairly recent) history and feel a connection to the local area, or appreciate the architectural aspects of the caves, or the sociology of the people who spent so much time...

Don't go with your GF however without telling her it is a cave and it might be scary !! Its not worth the hassle. Overall great day out , learn some history and the shop... More

This attraction hasn't changed in years. It was my third visit, this time with 2 boys (8 and 14). There is a tour every hour through the labyrinth of (man-made) caves with the guide telling the stories and legends behind them. The site is about a 20 minute drive from Woolwich and easily accessible by train.

What a great little trip. The guide was informative and clearly enjoyed his job. The tour by hurricane lamp really is great fun. The group was a bit big but it was half term so can't complain too much. We will be back

Excellent step back in time. All the guides are very knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. Recommend a visit to everyone. Need to wear warm clothes though, as it is cold down there. Also be prepared for the dark, they give you lanterns to carry but not everyone has one. Also wear sensible shoes. Haha must be the mother... More
