Entertaining yet poignant place to visit. You go down into the actual tunnels where the soldiers waited before the battle of arras. There's an exhibition and film show and gift shop. Good visit for all the family. Takes about 2 hours.

There were several a day. We took one at 4pm. Best to check their website as it can vary each day. Can't remember how much the tickets were. I think about 7 euros per adult.
