Delve Deep Into The Caves

Let's begin our journey down through the caves

On entering the Caves, long winding passages lead deep underground for over half a mile, through the great Banqueting Hall and past various chambers. In these you will find statues of various members of the Hellfire Club. The final destination is the Inner Temple, which is reached by crossing the River Styx. You are now several hundred feet below the Church on top of the hill with its Golden Ball.
