We booked the party package for my daughter’s 9th birthday. It was truly amazing. The children were greeted by the actors dressed as witches and wizards and they were taken through the caves to take part in broomstick races, spell making and potion class. The...More

So as Caves go it’s pretty basic, more like one cave and some long tunnels. However for a local attraction and when you start to understand the history it’s pretty interesting and cool how they’ve set it up. West Wycombe is a great little village...More

Not worth going to one of the Halloween nights for £10. I imagine very similar to an ordinary tour, except this was with people jumping out at you, and you can’t learn what the place is really about. Nice staff and suitable maybe if you...More

Interesting place, surprised by the length of the caves, originally used for extracting chalk for the building of roads. The week of our visit was the run up to Halloween, so you can imagine all the excited children about. Be aware though mind your head...More
