Very interesting, but no guided tour. It was very dark in places and a little slippery underfoot. Maybe they could consider handing out torches? Very reasonably priced and you can get a discount if you are also a member of the National Trust. Whilst we...More

Location isn't obvious when you enter the village so we ended up parking at the church/mausleum/ which only took a few minutes to walk down to the caves. Families could bring lunch and have it on the hills, although the cafe at the caves provides...More

Visited with my two girls (11 and 8) and, in the main, enjoyed a visit to the caves as a quirky detour on a visit to another attraction (Rush Trampoline Park). Was interesting and definitely a unique place to go, but I would say it...More

Very unique and interesting experience allowing one to reflect on the ridiculous follies of the English noble men. The underground walk takes you through the history and development of this private sanctuary. Cost to enter 7.50gbp

We take family and friends who come to visit to this place because it is so unusual. If you’re lucky you might encounter one or two ghosts!

Have visited these man made caves on numerous occasions. Can be quite scary in the darkness but great fun. Lots of history and mystery surrounds them. Easy to walk around and get about. However, it is a bit of a steep climb if you wish...More

A day out in the colder weather is always an adventure and this certainly was. The caves are interesting and worth a visit. You do walk around them at your own pace which is great, as not rushed. However there was no staff in the...More

The best option is to check times and prices, including access, all in their official website (in case they change anything). Also if you do go don't forget to visit the church and old mystery looking graveyard/memorial that... More

There is a bus from High Wycombe station which will take you to West Wycombe and you can alight there and easily walk to the cave. Times and fare can be checked on line.
