Visit the Victoria Tunnel

The Victoria Tunnel is a preserved 19th-century waggonway under Newcastle's streets, built by the Victorians to carry coal and re-used as an air raid shelter during World War 2. We are currently running single-household one-hour tours fully revised for Covid 19 guidelines. Book your tickets now.
