Take you back in time to see how the rich used their money to build follies, coupled with the house nearby make it a good attraction to go to

Good afternoon out but is expensive - could give more value for money with a free drink at the cafe at the entrance or include entry to West Wycombe Park as well.

very dated (models etc.) best in the summer as it is very cold inside. it does have a 'presence'. worth a visit. the golden ball a bit further up the hill is a much better visit though even if it is just for the views!

I took my sister and brother in law to the Hell Fire Caves on a cold and wet winter day. I kept thinking how wonderful it would be to bring the kids with torches and how much fun they'd have. There are a few improvements that could be made to the scenes that are set up but on the whole... More

We loved it - a unique place with lots of history. Would love to know what REALLY took place there are those years ago though!

I had the wits scared out of me as a child here so perfect place to bring my husband and the kids! Parking best at bottom of the hill or in the garden centre car park. It's a little way up the hill to the entrance. The Hellfire Caves, so called after the infamous Hell Fire Club associated with black... More

Went here with my partner as I work locally and always wanted to see what was this place about. It was good fun as we didn't know exactly what to expect but, if you imagine yourself there without lights, it is definitely scary. Not for people with a nervous condition, that is for sure I am thinking on coming back... More

Saw them on the TV, easy to get to just off M40. There is a free car park at the bottom of the hill (probably your best bet) as car park at the caves has only about 6 spaces. Buy your ticket at shop £5 good value, there coffee is ok, the caves are interesting there are boards all the... More

I parked in the signed car park and then climbed a steep hill to find that, in winter, this attraction is only open for a short time at weekends. A time table of opening hours by the car park would have saved me all the effort of climbing the hill.

I suppose in those days of yore, and if you can imagine the chaises-longues, candles, fire to keep warm and lots of tankards of ale then it must have been a real den of debauchery. As it is, without the accoutrements, it is still a very interesting attraction and I'm tempted to go back there for the spooky evenings of... More
