The caves at Chislehurst cover an area of six hectares and are located at about thirty meters below the ground’s surface. Unlike other caves the Chislehurst caves are man-made and form a unique maze of underground tunnels where one can get easily lost. The caves were created with the single purpose of providing construction materials for the London based edifices.
However throughout the years the caves were used for other purposes such as munitions storage during the First World War, mushroom growing during the 20’s and 30’s of the past century, shelter during the bombings of World War II and as a venue for concerts during the 60’s and 70’s of the 20th century. The caves were open to the public in the early years of the 20th century. Since then the guided tours of the caves give the opportunity to the visitors to learn about the Victorian history of Druids, Romans and Saxons.
