  • Went on a long tour. Walked for miles! The tour takes you round many of the tunnels showing you rooms and features of how the tunnels have changed over the years. The tunnels are big and mostly well lit but a torch was needed for a few areas. Very interesting and educational. I had no idea of the history. Highly recommended!
  • Had a great time ghost hunting. We are skeptics but was well worth the trip and will definitely be doing more stuff like this. Take a torch! It's so dark you wont see your own hand in front of your face 😂
