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...

Went here with my GF recently and had a great time. The guide from Canada / America - sorry couldn't pick the accent, was brilliant. 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

This is a great place for all the family, young and old. It is not just a cave or hole in the earth. In short this is history of the cave, how it was formed and what it has been used for over the decades, from helping a lot of people during the war to more recent times of concerts... More

Visited the caves this morning with my 12 year old daughter, to do something a little bit different during the half-term school holiday. I felt it was time well spent and I've been told to give the experience five stars! We were lucky to get straight onto a tour, just about to start as we paid out admission. Our guide... More

Chislehurst Caves is brilliant! It's very cold in there so you have to wrap up warm and it's also good for children, not just adults. The tour guides get the kids involved so they don't get scared and they take you for a mile walk round the caves. It's very haunted so don't go if you are petrified of ghosts..... More

I've lived in chislehurst for years and have never visited the caves even when I lived next to it ! But upon visiting with my girlfriend after her months of nagging I can honestly say it was a great trip with a great insight into the history in chislehurst and surrounding areas and amazing to find out all the famous...
