Just held my son's 6th birthday party at Hell Fire Caves. What a great experience for the kids and adults alike. The entertainers were fabulous-energetic, engaging and 'entertaining'! The party is kind of Harry Potter/wizard themed and they take care of everything - full entertainment...More

A fascinating place to visit, lots of history, tunnels quite dark but very informative with pictures and statues. Village is a lovely spot as well. There is a church and mausoleum on top of the caves which are well worth a visit as well. There...More

I didn't really expect a huge amount from this before going so I was pleased that they took a little while to walk around. Obviously I wish the whole thing was bigger and a little more unusual but you cant expect too much from caves...More

One of our local attractions are the caves in West Wycombe village. They have an interesting history behind them, so worth a Google before you actually visit. You could combine your trip with a visit to West Wycombe park, which some locals call Dashwood Manor....More

Untidy cafe area. Caves were very interesting but so much more could be made of the caves. Really interesting notes but not much use to blind or young people.

Didn't even know this place existed till I saw an offer on Groupon. It won't be for everyone but a walk up to the top of Wycombe hill followed by delving under the hill into the Hell-Fire caves made for a very pleasant morning. Tip,...More

We visited as a mixed age range group of 9 and we all agreed that it was an excellent choice of venue to which to start our Bank Holiday Monday in West Wycombe. We had fun & it was very educational, thought provoking in places....More

Searched the internet to find something to do for a mixed age group in that area. This looked interesting and we weren't disappointed. There is such a lot of history about the caves and the Hell-Fire Club really, really interesting. Would definitely recommend it. We...More

I really like the hellebore caves, I've been before about 9 years ago and thought I'd bring my 6 and 14 year old here. The caves are a little over priced in my opinion, I think £5 for an adult would be reasonable because it's...More

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.
