It doesn't take long to see this site. We arrived around 4pm and we were probably done by 4:45pm and we read everything in the caves. We nearly had the place to ourselves and that was nice (yet creepy). We followed our visit to West Wycombe Park with visiting this site and as NT members, the cost was £5. Creepy... More

We made the mistake of parking in the main street of the village and our 80yo visitor had to walk up the steep hill to the cave (parking onsite is very limited, but it seems that there is also some roadside parking nearby). The second mistake was forgetting the torch. At the entrance there is a small shop where you... More

This place has an interesting history. The photos are a bit misrepresentative. It has been done up a bit Disney/Madame Tussaud's. Would be more interesting with real stalactites/stalagmites. There is a hike outside up the hill to the church which has a great view. The cave seems done up for children and the history of the Hell Fire Club cleansed... More

Will take you about 15 minutes to do this - caves are ok but nothing special. Walk up to the Golden Dome at the top of the hill to get a great view of the chilterns Cafe does nice cake but service is slow at weekends.

My friend and I had a few hours to pass in the Wycombe area and came across the Hellfire Caves. What a delight! We parked in one of the car parks that was quite a way away and had an uphill climb to the caves. You can park outside the caves but it's only a small car park. As we... More

The caves are ok. We stopped after for a coffee at the cafe, they didn't have half the things advertised, the staff made a lot of mistakes and there weren't even any serviettes.

We were lucky enough to get a Groupon deal which was quite reasonable value as we had a teenager and 5 yr old too. It was quote interesting but much shorter than anticipated. Very friendly cafe with homemade cakes etc which were tasty. Don't expect to be here all morning or afternoon but surrounding area is lovely for a walk... More

This is one of those places that we've always said we'd go to but until today hadn't! It's is so very different to anywhere we'd ever been. The location high up in the Chilterns is amazing, we walked up to the mausoleum to start with, a bit of a hike but so worth it, then down to the caves. We... More
