Chislehurst Caves give you a sense of what it was like to live in appalling but adapted safe conditions during the bombings of WWII. Many years prior by the Normans and others. Worth the trip and there is a café and gift shop as well. This cave trip is not suitable for those who have trouble walking on uneven rock... More

My husband was born and brought up in Chislehurst just around the corner from the caves and yet he had never been and so we decided on a few days out to visit and we are so glad that we did. We went in to get our tickets for the tour and straight away we were greeted by a very... More

We really enjoyed the caves, we had a great guide and the group wasn't too big considering it was a BH. Overall we enjoyed it and would recommend.

I haven't been to Chislehurst Caves in years and was pleasantly suprised that it was an interesting visit. Getting there from the centre of London easy. We caught a train from Charing Cross. After a journey of about 30 minutes we arrived at Chislehurst station. We didn't see any signs at the station but it was just a matter of... More

We decided to visit Chislehurst Caves after reading about the attraction online. We lived nearby for a number of years before moving to Wales and did not know this place existed until we were visiting the area with friends recently. This was the best £6 I have ever spent ! We were made to feel most welcome by the staff... More

Buried inside a small housing estate it is well sign posted so easy to find with more than adequate parking.. The museum is not much to boast about but the adjacent cafe serves decent food at reasonable prices, albeit at a 'I'm in no hurry here' pace. The caves have been open to visitors since the early 1900's and are... More

I knew nothing about Chislehurst Caves before visiting and was only hoping to fill in a few spare hours on a filthy wet afternoon. What a joy! The waiting room is full of interesting artefacts showing the history of the caves, and there is also a gift shop and a café which serves homemade cakes and very good coffee. The... More

Myself and a friend decided to visit the caves as the weather wasn't very good. We are glad we did, we had a great day and learnt a lot from the volunteer guide. He was very entertaining and made the tour very interesting . After an hour we came out with a good knowledge of the history of the caves... More

I don't really know what I was expecting but I'm very happy we ended up going. Our guide, Darren, was really informative and great. He made the tour very interesting. I would definitely recommend this, but bring a jacket because it's cold down there!
