All reviews tour guide ghost stories world war air raid shelter gift shop minute tour lots of history rainy day tour takes great place to visit oil lamps music venue total darkness jimi hendrix rolling stones great afternoon cave system
I didn't realise how good this place was until I visited a cave in Malta. What an experience! Made better by a super guide whose enthusiasm for history (if you can call the 2nd World War history) made me want to find out more. There's...More
We visited the caves after reading up on them online. It’s reasonably priced, and quite informative if you like history. You get given a lamp to take round as it gets dark at points, and at one point you can take all the lamps away...More
Very interesting and had a really good tour guide! It's only a short visit lasts an hour! I would of liked the opportunity to see more of the cave. Is defiantly worth visiting. Wear proper shoes as the ground in there is not flat and...More
This is one of those places that you have right on your doorstep that you’re going to get round to visiting.....

I came here in September for a tour. I wasn't sure what to expect as I didn't do any research beforehand
The tour was amazing and had a really good guide. Unfortunately I can't remember her name. I loved the history and stories they told...More
The Chislehurst Caves are a series of man made caves, dating from the Druid, Roman and Saxon times. They were dug for their chalk and flint. The caves are now only a few minutes walk from the Chislehurst rail station - you can easily get...More
My friend and I decided to visit this place for the first time yesterday. We reached the village at ten and drove up to the caves. Once inside we waited for our guided tour to start. Personally I think that the tour of the place...More
These are some legit caves. Its about an hour long, way underground, through this maze of the caves. The guide is interesting and funny, and really brings the whole mystique/creep history to the caves and some surprises along the way. Its also a great trek...More

Should I invest in Oyster Card if I am staying at Univ of... (6 Replies)
I've read so much about Oyster Cards, I'm still confused. I know you need a deposit of 3 pounds. (Do I get that back when I am done with it?) I'm staying at Univ of Greenwich Avery Hill (Eltham) from July 10-Aug 4 and plan to venture out on weekends. Can Oyster Cards be used for when I take bus to Chislehurst Caves, or use buses to take me to trains for Dover, Edinburgh, York, Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, or trains to take me to Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park? Then I read that...More

It is probably worthwhile getting one for the convenience, although you may not be able to use it too much because of your location. Most train stations inside London don't yet have Oyster cards readers, and you therefore need paper tickets or travelcards to travel by train between Eltham and wherever. That was true in March when I travelled to Eltham to visit Eltham Palace. But you can use it on buses and the tube. I would just put £20 on the Oyster card. You can add more if you need it,...More
How can I get from University of Greenwich to White Cliffs... (17 Replies)
I'll be staying at University of Greenwich from July 10-Aug 4. On the weekends, I plan on venturing out to London, Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, Chislehurst Caves, etc.. I really want to see the White Cliffs of Dover, Seven Sisters and Dover Castle. I saw some websites that have cruises around it as well. I tried using the journey planner and it doesn't have a destination for Dover. Anyone know how can I get there from Greenwich or am I forced to travel into London and which...More

The station is Dover Priory. Trains go from London Bridge & Charing Cross. Some of the trains will stop at local south London stations, e.g. St Johns etc. This will be the slower local commuter trains. Where in Greenwich will you be staying? Should point out that Greenwich is the historic place on the river Thames AND also in the Borough of Greenwch which is a huge administrative area which stretches out to the very edge of south east London. I'm going down that way soon, so...More
Best Hostel (safe) in London for Solo Adventure Seeker? (6 Replies)
I'll be flying into Heathrow and will only have the day and one night in London. I'm not interested in tourist attractions like Big Ben and such, but plan to see the Chislehurst Caves and want to get a feel for the city by simply walking around. That night I'd like to go clubbing with some new friends from the Hostel or see CircusFest at the Roundhouse.. There are so many hostels in London it's difficult to know which one is best - any suggestions with my plans in mind? Many thanks in advance!
