Carriere Wellington, Arras

4.6
The network of underground tunnels known as Carriere Wellington played a major role in taking enemy lines in the Battle of Arras in 1917, and helped save the lives of many soldiers. Miles of tunnels dug beneath the Arras countryside became command posts, kitchens, sleeping quarters, and even a hospital, protecting around 24,000 Allied troops.

  • A 20 minute walk from the centre of Arras. Very well organised tour with audio guide as well as a guide who spoke in French and English. Fascinating to see what was achieved in such a short time.  more »

  • Fascinating history that's brilliantly presented. A great way to spend an hour or so underground and out of the weather. As a bit of an AV nerd also, it's great to see technology put to such good use in telling the stories of times past. Very slick and refined audio, video and lighting.
  • Great experience, really made me feel what the conditions were like
  • Good museum.A little bit special and very interesting to be underground to see where the new zealand miners where working,and where so many soldiers were hidden from artillery.The french guides talks good english
  • A truly fantastic place to visit. Full of atmosphere, moving and educational. And only €7 entry
  • Very interesting story. Tour was good but not great. You have to do the tour though.
