Amazing to see and hear about the tunnels and their importance in saving lives during WW2. A well run attraction by dedicated volunteers. The tour takes about an hour and a half. If, like me, you are claustrophobic in total darkness, you should note that...More

Visited the Ramsgate tunnels and was thoroughly impressed! Colin conducted the tour and was so informative, such history about the area I knew nothing about. The caves are remarkable, cold and damp but so wrap up warm this time of year. Really worth a visit!

Had a great 90 mins here seeing WW2 life and history told and shown. The cramp smelly damp but life saving network is a must see from both a historical and social standpoint. At £7 a ticket it is an absolute bargain, add to that...More
