West Wycombe Caves (The Hell Fire Caves)
Come and venture 300 feet under West Wycombe Hill into a series of hand carved tunnels, excavated by local labourers using only rudimentary hand tools and by candlelight alone, in the 1750’s. Experience first hand the path taken by members of the aristocracy to the once secret meeting place of the notorious Hell Fire Club.
Wend your way through the narrow tunnels hewn from the chalk hillside until you descend into the magnificent banqueting hall. Carry on from the banqueting hall across the River Styx to reach the centre of the hill and the Inner Temple. Are the Caves haunted ? Come and find out for yourself!
After your adventures in the Caves, visit our delightful café with its award winning murals of West Wycombe, for snacks, light lunches and afternoon tea. Then venture up to the top of West Wycombe Hill to the Mausoleum and the Church of St Lawrence, atop which lies the Golden Ball.
