Just opened to the public the Ramsgate wartime tunnels are very interesting you are shown a short film and then issued with a hard hat and torch before having a guided tour, it is chilly down there so you do need a jacket and comfy shoes as ground is a little uneven.

My wifes late father always talked about the tunnels. I can remember going on the miniature railway in 1964/5 with my brother and Uncle. So we thought why not have look. Easy to book online but limited places as we only booked the day before. This is a very recent attraction so you need to give them some time to get more exhibits, but that aside what was available was fine and Isaac the tour guide explained and told the history very well. With other guides in training at the back there was always the opportunity to ask questions. If you don't mind the dark, carrying a small torch and wearing a hard hat. It was well worth the fee. Even recognised some of the names on the walls from the Ramsgate youths who obviously entered illegally many moons ago.

We discovered the Ramsgate Tunnels online and decided that this would suit our holiday plans perfectly. The admission fee for the tunnels was very reasonable and with a bit of time to spare, we made use of the small, quirky on-site café that served great value teas, coffees and soft drinks, as well as a selection of sweet and savoury food. Our friendly, helpful tour guide Tom brought the stories and secrets that had been held within the chalky tunnel walls for 75 years to life, by combining fascinating facts with his brilliant sense of humour. Our family group of four was aged between 15-86, so we would thoroughly recommend the tunnels as a great trip out for all the family.

Only recently opened to the public this is a fascinating place to visit. 5 of us, ranging in age from 3 to 63, all learnt a lot about these incredible tunnels. Our guide, Gillian, was a brilliant storyteller. It's hard to believe that the engineer who designed these life-saving tunnels was not honoured.
