Young granddaughter was a little bored but noticed older children liked it. Good idea when it's raining, was some crafts outside for the children to create. Y

We were told about this place by a family member, so we decided to explore. We first went to the mausoleum at the top of the hill and had a really good explore around the church and woods with a bit of geo caching. The views are absolutely stunning. We eventually got to the caves and I felt a bit... More

Good fun. Kids will love it. The waxworks inside are a little dated. Good to go in the summer because it is nice and cool inside. Quite expensive for a hole in the ground but nice to explore a piece of Wycombe's history. Parking close by isn't too good. Give it a go...

If you're looking for something different, don't look any further, this is the place for you. It's full of history, dark and gloomy and well worth a visit. I visited here with my husband as we had always wanted to see the caves but living a good distance away at the time it was something we had to put on... More

My son liked this trip but I was a little disappointed. It was quite pricey to get the whole family in for the amount of time that it takes to look around. Fairly interesting I guess but it's no Cheddar Gorge or Wookey hole!

It has a really different entrance which looks quite impressive when you see it. On entering the site it gives a sense of expectation, which I must admit never gets there. It is interesting as it is different, however there is nothing amazing about it. It is cool, which is what you would expect from going underground. I was surprised... More

The caves were built to build the road from the Dashwoods... they are quite small. On haloween you can enjoy a really unscary evening as hundreds of people queue up t see a qhost jump on them - pretty poor. I liked the pile of coins they found and the river hades bit -but its all a bit naff to... More

Quite interesting and accessible but the commentary inside at the exhibits was not very audible. The story of the caves is interesting and can be read and heard at the entrance. Good facilities for refreshment and conveniences.

Was disappointed by the caves, that is, its not a cave but a 30m hole in the side of a hill. although this visit was some years ago I don't believe it would of changed that much.

best in fright night and whilst a small attraction it is well worth it and take in the history of the caves. Nice area for parents to have coffee whilst kids scare each other! Dont forgot to drop into the sweet shop in West Wycombe
