January 27th - Bonus "Walk"

Chislehurst Caves

it’s probably wet and muddy or icy so this is a walk with a difference - underground. We will be visiting Chislehurst Caves. It would be good to book a group tour rather than just turn up and see if there is space for us so I will need definite bookings for those who want to go as soon as possible and definitely TWO WEEKS before the trip (Jan 13th) so I can arrange this if there are enough of us

You will see from their website https://chislehurst-caves.co.uk/ that, depending on your age, admission is £8 or £6. There is a cafe at the caves which are 5 minutes from Chislehurst station (Oyster Zone 5).

Meet at CHARING CROSS Main Line station ( near platform 2 ) at 11:30am.
