Deep, down underneath your feet is a labyrinth of history and mystery in Chislehurts Caves.
On this guided tour you’ll spend 45-50 minutes walking a mile through the dark and sinister looking caves. Armed only with an oil lamp, you’ll be led around corners, cervices and cracks. These man-made tunnels cover 6 hectares and are perfect for the most intrepid of explorers!
Dug out for chalk used in lime burning and brick making for the building of London, the caves were opened to the public in the 20th century to share the history of the Druids, Romans and Saxons. There are also tales of smuggling and murder down in this darkness and it’s been said that certain spaces are haunted, or it could just be Chalky the cave cat!
