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 The tunnels were originally made to extract chalk and flint, but since the turn of the 20th century they have been used as an arsenal, an air-raid shelter, a dance venue, and even for mushroom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...

  • Absolutely worth a visit. The tour was approximately 50 minutes long. Our tour guide was very engaging with interesting stories about the caves. Can feel a bit chilly in caves so wear a warm layer. Floor a bit uneven so wear sensible shoes.
  • We were made very welcome at The Chislehurst Caves today. Our tour was led by Darren who was a really excellent guide. It was the most interesting tour and well worth a visit. Thoroughly recommend this interesting tour. Excellent value.
