  • Really good, if your interested in local, wartime or underground history then you will find this excellent. The guides are excellent and full of local knowledge. I would recommend looking out for the railway tours as well.
  • Fantastic place! Take a jumper if it's a hot day as it's pretty cool down there
  • Great and interesting. Well worth your time. Tunnels are around 11c all year around so bring a coat.
  • Very enjoyable and informative tour, an amazing place. Wish I'd taken a cardi though,
  • Explore historic Ramsgate via its maze of underground air raid tunnels. Fantastic fun and very interesting.
