Absolutely fascinating and interesting guided tour of the caves. What a calming and peaceful experience too. Followed by the equally interesting self-guided tour of the East Cave. Fabulous couple of hours. Will definitely be booking Barons cave as well in the future.

Reigate caves are only open 3 or 4 times yearly, had wanted to visit but open day usually clashed , when I finally visited it was much more than I had expected, the tours of small groups are led by very knowledge guides and run every 20 minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour which lasted about 3 hours if you include a visit to the Barons Cave. Great value for a small entrance fee. Highly recommend.

No one would ever imagine the size and delight of visiting these wonderful cave. The tour is well explained and the caves are actually running under parts of the high street. It is an experience with a difference and well worth the visit. Accessibility is good and is suitable almost for all. Having lived in the area for over thirty years we had not realised what we were missing.

Please note that the caves are only open from May to September - only certain dates according to the schedule on the entrance.
Not sure why they can't open throughout the year but there you are: enjoyed a coffee in Reigate instead!

Visited reigate caves at the weekend, had an amazing guide called Kevin, he was fun of interesting information about the caves and the history. Loved that he was also able to relate to his own childhood experience during the war. Loved it all would love to do the other cave in the future.

Great value for money if you are in and around the area of Reigate, however I would not travel too far for this tour of the cave unless you have a personal interest in geology and excavation. I went with my two young children 6 & 4, and it was great to go into a cave but was not too entertaining for them in any way the tour guide was an elderly male and seemed more interested in speeding things along that going into too much detail about the caves, although cant complain too much as I am sure they are volunteers, but some more passion would not be unwelcome. I would suggest a visit to Chislehurst Caves instead as this was a far more entertaining and historically minded tour great for adults and children.

Sorry you did not enjoy your visit, most youngsters do find something to fullfill their trip. The tunnel road area seems to fill that requirement. Please ring us if you are still dissatisfied.

We all need the Peak District for exploring underground but Reigate Caves provide an insight into the sand excavation that took place under Reigate Town Centre. Reigate and Banstead Council (or others) should (or be allowed to) sink a load of money into preserving the cave's cultural heritage and create a community space for arts and events (after all the Cure did a gig in the caves many moons ago). The caves were also used as air raid shelters during WWII.
