My friend and I took the kids to explore this local attraction. There was enough parking which was a plus, the caves were very interesting and the highlight was enjoying a history chat by 'Jack Sheppard' - an 18th Century Survivalist. The kids loved listening to him and getting to hold his gadgets. A really fun day out, perfect for... More

We love it here, although we did until we were forced out by demons we are sure. If u like a scare and believe in the legends that come with this place then it's the place for you. It is definitely haunted, we captured orbs on my camera and a demon figure in the wall. My partner ended up having... More

Our Grandchildren enjoyed the experience in the caves. although it is quite small and it can get very busy. it will be better to go when it is quieter in the afternoons. A bit pricey for what it is but saying that the kids enjoyed it.

Hell fire caves sounds much more interesting then what this really is There are no caves just tunnels with old mannequins and some fake stalagmites and stalactites. We paid around £20 to get in and spent 20 minutes inside the tunnels.

Myself and my husband went on an outing here on a snowy day, the Hellfire Caves were ideal! So warm underground. Definitely thought it was worth the £7 each. Make sure when you go when it's less crowded (later in the afternoon to avoid school groups) and when you're deep in the caves. Stand still it's eerily quiet, very spooky!

What an awesome experience, a great place to see something different. Parking is a good distance from the entrance but there are a few spaces outside but you will need to get there early. Pay inside the cafe and proceed to the gate. The cave is clean, well laid out and most interesting. The tunnels are fairly long with story... More

An interesting hour or two can be spent here, but not perhaps as fulfilling as you may expect. Yes the caves (tunnels) are nie and some are reasonable well lit. The historic scenes and boards with information are okay, but you are left with the feeling that there could be more to it. You can get a cheap cup of... More

After seeing the caves on tv we knew we had to visit, and we weren't disappointed, such an amazing history and the view from the monument is breathtaking, parking is good and in good weather you can explore all over the place, the only down side to our visit is that the church wasnt open to see the beauty inside,...

I visited this a few years back. At the time the Directions from the car park to the caves was poor. Once in them the information was poorly laid out and looks like it dated back to the 70's. Needs to update it's info spots. Would much rather pay more and visit the National Trust properties around the area. Dull... More

Set in the heart of some beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside — well worth a walk up the hill behind the caves afterwards for spectacular views and plenty of opportunities to watch red kites in action – this has been one of my favourite places to visit since I was five-years-old and it terrified me (in a good, Doctor Who kind of...
