A Trip Back in Time Tunnels

Two of my lovely guests (Hi Peter and Bianca) and myself were priveleged to be the first 'group' to experience the tunnel tour a couple of weeks ago, the weekend prior to the official opening.  We were very grateful to be their guinea pigs and were treated to a step back in time when Ramsgate was under constant threat during WWII.  

The guides were excellent, giving just enough information to take on whilst marvelling at how people were saved and how they survived because of the clever determination of 'The Mad Mayor', ABC Kempe who had the vision that Ramsgate would need this protection and could take advantage of it's subterranean features.  

Ramsgate boasted the most extensive Air Raid Precaution Tunnels in the country, if not the world and now after 70 years of abandonment and because of a hardworking team, they have been brought back to life!  

Bookings are advised and can be made online with prices at £5 per adult with discounts for children and over 65s.  You can take a chance and just turn up with tours starting at 10, midday, 2 and 4pm and lasting around one hour. All money goes back into this project which will be constantly evolving. To find out more about the tours and their vision for the future, check out their website at Ramsgate Tunnels.  Hard hats supplied!
