Create an itinerary including Chislehurst Caves
Use your guide and oil lamp at Chislehurst Caves to explore a network of man-made tunnels 30 m (98 ft) below the surface. The tunnels were originally made to extract chalk and flint, but since the turn of the 20th century they have been used as an arsenal, an air-raid shelter, a dance venue, and even for mushroom cultivation. Take the guided tour to explore the labyrinth, learn the folklore, and get a few surprises along the way. Only groups need to book in advance. The tour is about 1.6 km (1 mi) long and lasts about 50 minutes. The rough terrain is not very accessible, but possible with a strong pusher. Put Chislehurst Caves on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Chislehurst trip itinerary builder website.

  • I booked tickets on the morning of Easter Monday to do later that day, it was a very big group, but felt safe as everyone wore their masks. We were humming and haring as to whether we should go...

  • Our tour guide was hosted by Peter. He was amazing. We really enjoyed ourselves, he defiantly gave us the best experience possible with the stories he told and how welcoming and fun he was. He then showed us the function room as we enquires about it and he couldn’t be happier to help us with our questions. He is an asset to the caves and we would defiantly recommend going especially if you get Peter as your guide!!
  • Loved this place. Wish I could spend more time wandering around the many many tunnels. It's got a fascinating and rich history. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, as were the rest of the staff.
