I really enjoying Chislehurst Caves and was very interesting walking through all the caves and at some point was very scary, i would recommend anyone who is bored and looking for a day out. There is one scary point when you are left in the cave and the guide takes all the light and shows you how the sound travels... More

Three adults and a nearly 3 year old. Very informative guide took us on the nearly 1 hour walking tour deep in the caves. Really interesting. I would say it's a must see experience. £18 for us all . Good value. Has cafe and souvenir shop too. Tours go on the hour. Not open min and tues unless school holidays.

As a last minute decession I took my partners 11 year old daughter, when we arrived we were greeted at the ticket desk to a friendly welcome and lucky for us the tour started 5 mins later. And true enough the tour lasted an hour, we both found it very interesting and for me was like being a kid again... More

I've been here once before and it was brilliant. It's great value for money and very interesting. A little let down on this trip. Our guide, Paul A, was nowhere near as good as our last guide. He barely spoke. When he did we couldn't hear him and was almost like he couldn't be bothered. Out last guide was so... More

Chiselhurst itself is pretty unremarkable other than a nice little river walk and the pub by the station, but the caves are a little gem and well worth visiting. Brilliant tour and very interesting.

Amazing, but do not go there with young children. It is to scary for them.probably from 8 y.o. might be OK.

The tour of the caves only lasts an hour, which personally, I think is just the right length of time, especially if you have young children. The caves are not natural, but man made, so not your typical attractive cave system. The interesting aspect of the caves is really the use of them throughout histroy, particularly during war time.
