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.

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!

Absolutely fabulous, perfect all weather attraction. Our tour leader was Pete and he had bags of energy, even with bratty kids in the group. Be aware, my 8 yr old was quite spooked (so was I!!lol) Can't wait to take other people there, absolute gem of a place

Went here a few months ago and was surprised what a great place was on my door step and I hadn't been. If you haven't been then go it's a very worthwhile visit.

great for kids just old enough to be scared for age 9 i think, lots of history down there. Could you make it a bit more scary?

Enjoyed tour of the caves and was good to hear of its fascinating history. Very good and witty guide. Prices for kids could have been cheaper. May be a little scary for some of the very young ones. Still very enjoyable and was interesting to hear of the Dr Who connection.

What a fabulous place. Steeped in history from Romans and Druids through to the Second World War and then on to Jimmy Hendrix, this place has it all. The entry price is really reasonable by today's standards and the guys who take the tours really appear to love the place. Take advantage of the light of the lantern to light... More
