We visited the Hellfire Caves for a paranormal investigation. It is a very interesting place to visit with a great history behind it. Would recommend to history buffs and ghost hunters alike!

The caves are very nice, but at £7.50 for adults and £6 for children it’s just far far too expensive! It’s literally a half an hour of walking down into the hill, with some information boards and dressed up mannequins. Its too much money. £3...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.
