We had time to fill in before going to the Wellington tunnels so decided to look around the quarry beneath the town hall. There's a pass that gives you access to the belfry as well and is a real bargain. Our guide was excellent, giving...More

Beautiful underground. I would recommend combing the ticket with the Beffroi and the Carriere Wellington. Guided tour which lasts around 45-60 minutes. Guide was fluent in English and polite. Interesting history of Arras on how the tunnels have been used over the centuries.

Always want to know what's beneath the centre of Arras? Take this tour and explore the several purposes of the caves beneath street level. From the early 9th century to World War 1!

Loved this tour. The guide was brilliant. She spoke beautiful English and kept checking we understood what she'd said. The tunnels are really interesting...carved out in the 16th century, then had a range of uses as the years passed. Particularly enjoyed the historical facts as...More

Entrance under the tourist office. Probably for safety reasons, only a small portion of the underground quarry is open for the tour. Lots of information, but nothing of any substantial value. 12° C in the tunnels under the Place des Heros, a bonus as it...More

This 45 minute tour takes you under Arras into the quarry tunnels. Whilst it's interesting, it's made a little tedious by having mixed language tours, and as the commentary his fairly lengthy, and is repeated in different languages, if you don't have an engaging tour...More

We had a bilingual tour in English and French, with Naomi, who was very knowledgeable. Very interesting to see all the tunnels, and amazing how big they are! Worth a visit.

If you don't speak French, Google as much information as you can before you go. Our guide had very basic English. Her explanations in French would last 2 minutes, then the English translation would last 30 seconds.
