Ramsgate Tunnels is celebrating its 10th anniversary as a visitor attraction with a free open today (June 1) to mark the occasion.

In January 2014, the Heritage Lottery Fund awarded a grant of £84,500 to the tunnels and they were reopened to the public six months later in June 2014, just 75 years after they were first opened as a wartime shelter in 1939.

Since then, volunteers have transformed the heritage attraction into one of the leading visitor destinations in the south east of England.

The open day is running until 4:30pm and features free activities throughout the day.
