Take a walk in Scadbury Park
The variety of scenery is what I found exceptional during this walk, unfortunately not all the park has got smooth pathways where buggies can go, therefore I would not take your baby/toddler in a pram.

It is some time since I last visited the caves, but they've always remained a fun and special experience in my mind.
A little hideaway, almost unannounced in this leafy area, you will find Chislehurst Caves welcoming you for a fascinating tour of just some of it's miles of underground network. You will learn about the history of the cave, and may even see the spooky pond in the middle.... I still remember the scary story from my childhood!!
Current prices for a tour of the caves are at £5 for Adults, with a discounted £3 for Under 16's and OAPs.
Here is a great review of the caves and it's tour... if you prefer surprises and discovering new things for yourself, then don't click the link!

These are the only 'thing' to do in the village...although I believe the best part is the village itself...such a pretty location.
Chislehurst Caves are a labyrinth of dark mysterious passageways which have been hewn by hand from the chalk, deep beneath Chislehurst. There are over 20 miles of caverns and passageways, dug over a period of 8000 years. The vast complex of caves are a maze of ancient mines originally carved out in the search for flint and chalk. They are divided into three main sections, Saxon, Druid and Roman. Each section was later connected by digging ajoining passages.

Within the cave complex can be seen 'the hospital', the saxon 'alter', and the 'haunted pool'...plus those areas used by the army, and where the public hid during the London blitz!
