Trip down memory lane for me as I used to visit often as a kid but this time it was with my two daughters who thourghly enjoyed the tour. It goes so fast and our tour guide had a real talent.

I love Chislehurst Caves and have been coming for a long time. However after my visit today I am sad to say my family will no longer be visitors. I understand that we currently fighting a global pandemic, but you must understand some of us are UNABLE to wear a mask. Not through choice or for “selfishness”. You have discriminated against me for just this. Shame on you! If you feel it necessary to take this discriminatory stance it should be VERY clearly stated upon booking online. Your “no exceptions” rule is rigid and unnecessary. Adults who are exempt as per government guidelines must wear a mask to protect everyone from COVID, yet children don’t? How does that even make sense?!?

Loved my tour of Chiselhurst Caves today - went on a scoping trip alone to see if I could one back with my kids. I loved every minute of it but it is dark & a bit eerie with only paraffin lights to see the way - if you don’t like mannequins it’s definitely not for you! Our guide Peter was amazing - knowledgeable & entertaining & obviously loves his job. It also felt very safe to visit at the moment with smaller groups in the spacious cave & everyone wearing masks. Also a one way system inside the building for the ticket office, shop, cafe & toilets. I will definitely be recommending it to family & friends and plan to return soon! Big thumbs up from me 👍🏻

Our experience of the caves was short-lived and far from enjoyable. Perhaps we got unlucky with our tour guide, who was incredibly impatient with the children and passive aggressive in the extreme. Don’t know his name but he has a grey/white beard and that’s where the similarity to Santa ends! For context, our eldest has just turned 4 and our youngest is 20 months. We knew the tour would not work out at the first stop as he knelt down to look our eldest in the face and do a “deal” with him to keep quiet. He wasn’t bargaining with anything other than light intimidation and our lad had hardly said a word at that point. He carried on speaking, pausing deliberately for the slightest murmur the boys made, until he stopped to say the job was hard enough in a mask without this distraction - If the kids made one more sound we would be asked to leave. The way he handled the situation in front of the group was embarrassing and uncomfortable. It could have been handled much more tactfully, but this guy was visibly irritated by the presence of young kids and could not hide it. We were glad to leave and were greeted by a much friendlier chap who showed us the way out. Have to say we were satisfied that after a short wait at reception the manager gave us a full refund on our tickets. You sell tickets for 3 and above, but please consider making a note of caution clearer for parents of young children on the website. I see a few similar reviews here calling out rude staff and can’t help but imagine the same man was involved.
