  • This is fascinating experience. The tunnels are run entirely by dedicated volunteers who do a great job telling the story of the critical role of the tunnels saving thousands of lives during WW2...  more »
  • Excellent place to visit, especially if bringing your kids to show a bit of history and the value of the effort that was taken by the ancestors to go through war and maintain the nation that England is today. The tour guide Colin was really good at explaining all detail and curiosities of the tunnels. Highly recommended. And there is also a very nice Coffee Shop at end of tour.
  • Was a great experience, lots of history and interesting to explore under Ramsgate and see into the past through the war and it being a train line. Good for children to learn about history and for half terms or school holidays for something to do. It's a excellent price for the time and tour you get as well. Also a little cafe out at the front of the tunnels. Staff and friendly and helpful.
