Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We walked from Midford Station through the Two Tunnels and then turned round.

It was a lovely walk despite the inclement weather but at least we were dry whilst walking through the tunnels.

It's good not only walking but also for cyclists and next time, I may just dust off my bike and cycle all the way to Bath Green Park Station - now Sainsburys !

The pathway is tarmaced and Combe Down Tunnel has great lighting.

Lovely cycle through the tunnels, would recommend having lights on your bike as the tunnels are quite dark. Beautiful area.

Take an amazing walk through the two tunnels. Combe Down tunnel is nearly a mile long! Check out the Hope and Anchor when you get to Midford!

I entered the 10K race but the tunnels are available for anyone to walk or cycle. Lovely and cool inside, a bit dark and you have to trust there is nothing to trip over whilst running but fortunately my faith was well placed. A beautiful area well worth a visit

Would've been 5 stars on this lovely cycle ride if the music had been on in the tunnels (and some brighter lights for goodness sake?!), 8 yr old in tears after the second longer tunnel was just too frightening for him.

The Bath area is very hilly. If like me you love cycling but hate hills, I recommend this interesting, beautiful and mainly flat cycle along a disused rail track-turned-cycle way. It goes right into central Bath if that's where you want to get to. In July the valley around Tucking Mill Viaduct (which the track goes over) looked as lush and tropical as New Zealand. All along the way are fascinating information boards about the track's history as a rail way. Two caveats - the tunnel is amazing to ride through but very cold and damp even on a hot day, so bring something warm. I also strongly suggest you put your bike lights on even though the tunnel is lit. Secondly, when I cycled through the tunnel a few days ago my beige shorts got spattered with oil somehow. I recommend wearing something old or black. Highly recommended as a day trip.

Drove my Chevy to the Two Tunnels but the music has died

I suspect that the absence of music is due to an electrical fault (already) and will cost too much to repair. British workmanship again! Should have employed a German contractor in the first place - cheaper in the long run.

Here's a tip: leave the tunnel on the city side, go up Shakespeare Avenue and into Alexandra Park and wow! (not a lot of visitors know this)

The two tunnels make an interesting addition to an already lovely ride. Started in Bathampton and riding clockwise (recommended) down to the Dundas Aqueduct. Refreshments/toilets available and maps of the route. Continued through a school on foot part of the way then followed the route signs through some quiet country lanes towards Midford until we found the entrance to route 244. Doubling back in ourselves on the purpose built Greenway was a pleasure. Wide Tarmac path, mild gradient before entering the Combe Down tunnel. Over a mile long and dimly lit, atmospheric with orchestral music at the mid-way point. Opens out into a wooded area before entering the second tunnel which is much shorter and slopes down for a nice freewheel for most of its length. A little bit of public road follows then turn onto the river Avon footpath into Bath itself. We followed the river into the city centre and ate at one of the many eateries next to the train station. After a rest we crossed the river on the footbridge behind the train station and re-joined the canal towpath where it enters the River Avon. Small detour necessary at the moment (Aug 2020) due to repairs to the tow path then on to Bathampton, stopping for an ice cream at a barge near the George Inn. We cycled on a Tuesday morning in the school holidays and the path was pleasantly quiet. Weekends can be very busy.

Walked from Bath to Midford and back. There was some lovely peaceful scenery outside of the tunnel. The tunnels themselves are very interesting to see and there were some excellent information boards giving stories of various tragedies on the line, but I wouldn't rush back. The longest tunnel takes about 20 minutes to walk through, but with unchanging views ended up quite tedious. The weird violin music in the middle was especially grating, as was the thump, thump, thump of sweaty joggers panting past at regular intervals and cyclists with no bells constantly surprising the two of us as we walked side by side. It is probably best seen by bike, as I expect the tunnel would only take 5 minutes and the ascent /descent is gradual.

It was an adventure for my daughter! And a great surprise, because of the lights and the music.
Really appreciate.
