The tunnels were great to visit - showing us the amazing bravery of the soldiers of that time. Emotional and something we all should witness. Bring a coat, chilly down in the tunnels.

We loved the tour at the Wellington Tunnels. Our three children thoroughly enjoyed them as well. The audio tour along with the guided tour was informative and interesting.

Tours are fully guided and timed. Don't know if they do advanced booking. We turned up on a quiet Sunday morning and waited 20 mins for our tour start.

You will be lucky to find a group that has pre booked. It's a brilliant place to visit and obviously very popular. Keep checking in for cancellations.
