Just a short walk from the Chatsworth Hotels and deep in the heart of West Hill lies the Smugglers Adventure, acres of caverns that conceal the thrilling history of smugglers, bootleggers and warring bloodthirsty gangs.Explore the labyrinth of secret tunnels and passages and discover the dangers and hardships that faced the Sussex smugglers of the eighteenth century.
Join notorious smuggler ‘Hairy Jack’ as he leads you through the underground caverns, passages and tunnels on a voyage back through time to the heyday of smuggling.
In the 17th Century, a couple lived in the caves after being discharged from the town's workhouse for repeated misbehaviour. This is just one of countless stories to be discovered in the dark depths of the caves.
