Went here not knowing what to expect...greeted by a dramatic front entrance. National trust members get a small discount. Once inside the information boards give fascinating information about the goings on of the Hell Fire Club members (times haven't really changed much!!) although one or...More

It's relatively cheap to visit this piece of history. Your left to your own devices to walk down the gravel floored tunnels to the caves and read the story boards. There are a number of dressed mannequins that try to illustrate the stories, maybe not...More

Very interesting story, make sure you read all the notices or you will miss out on the Full story. Take care some low ceilings and some dimly lit areas. But great fun.

In some ways it's a good thing but this place has not changed at all since I used to go there as a teenager in the mid 1970's. The tearooms look the same. Inside the caves the figures appear to be largely unchanged and the...More

We visited as part of a Groupon deal. It was £7.50 for two people. When we arrived we was lucky enough I get a parking spot right outside. We went into the cafe to get our tokens to be able to go into the caves....More

The cave is as such as typical as caves can be. There is nothing too exciting and we had a mixed experience. The cave entrance looks spooky and we went with expectation of having an spooky adventurous walk. :) While my son loved and enjoyed...More

The caves are about 30minutes-1 hour self tour. As soon as you walk in there are information boards and these are dotted throughout. There is gravel underfoot so it is safe to navigate through the low lighting. We went as soon as it opened at...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

As previous person replies yes would be a problem with a pushchair as some of the passageways are quite narrow and poorly lit, and the ground is uneven in places

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.
