With a history as long as the Tunnels´ you can’t be sure what past stories may blend into the present, what echoes might still remain… Lights flicker, mysterious sounds, that breeze that blows past your ear in the dark….

Join the volunteers at 4pm for the family friendly Halloween Explorer Tour in the Deep Tunnel Shelters, with experienced guides who will explain the origins, construction and use of the system.

What might you find, who might you meet, as our guides highlight the significant role the shelters and the Railway Tunnel played in protecting the inhabitants of Ramsgate during the Second World War.
