  • Steve was our guide - he was brilliant - so very informative. Hard hat's were provided and sturdy shoes are a must. It was cold too, so wrap up. It's quite a long walk through the tunnels, with a shor...  more »

  • Knowledgeable guides, not only did they have the facts but also the human stories and quirks that make a place special. Excellent tour adapted to the interests and abilities of the group. The tunnels themselves have been made accessible with gravel floor and hard hats and torches are provided. Small shop and coffee and cake available in the main railway tunnel and public toilets available on the sea front. A really interesting and friendly place.
  • Fantastic trip back in time. Great museum and guided tour with information via a guide the whole time. Shop and homemade cakes and drinks cafe. Very good value and great history which increases with local knowledge and further more findings. Lots of genuine items in the tunnels to add to your trip through time.
  • What a brilliant historic place. "I never even knew they were there". 4.5 miles of tunnels running under the whole of Ramsgate. Plus a '2 mile long disuse railway tunnel. All accessible to the public. I went on a ' 1.40 minute guided tour. It was amazing. Lots of relics from the ' First and second world war. I lovely place for a day out. Entry fee and guided tour costs '£ 5.00. March 2018. Finish off with a nice meal at the Victoria Pavilion. The fully refurbished Wetherspoons on the harbour. "MAGIC".
  • Amazing place, when this place open, over night becomes when of the best tourist attractions in Thanet. The price is very reasonable, you have to plan well ahead for this type of place, they can only have so many in the tunnel at one time and I think it's done on 1 hour booking times. Great day out on a rainy day
  • Fantastic experience filled with the rich history of the tunnels. A must for anyone interested in WW2. The catering offer was a life saver when we visited. It was a very cold day and the hot soup and roll was very welcome and warming before the visit.
