Thank you for your review, what date did you visit the site.

Definitely worth a visit. Two fascinating sites: one from the castle, one sand mine. Does not take long and you will look at Reigate completely differently.

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.

Fantastic value for money, you would not believe the history of these caves, very strongly recommended, just need to keep an eye on the dates they are open.

Thank you for the positive revied. The conditions in the sand mines limit usage its very damp down there.

If you are interested in Geology or history then I would definitely recommend a tour of the caves. The volunteers are friendly and clearly know what they are talking about.

You should be ok . Ask at reception desk if you could go in a smaller group. Depending how busy the day is this could be arranged.

We used to allow dogs in the site when we were quiet, but due to issues of some dogs fouling the site and the risk of children getting germs only assistant dogs are allowed on site.

There's a Council car park quite near the tunnel entrance but it's not easy to spot. Otherwise multi storey near Everyman cinema or Morrisons (but beware 2 hour limit)
