• Standard tours take two hours and are not suitable for children under seven years old. (During holiday periods we offer one hour tours suitable for families with younger children.)

  • Tours start and finish in the Ouseburn Valley.

  • The Tunnel is a dark, confined space (in most places it is six feet 3 inches high by seven feet wide), so we provide hard hats and torches.

  • The Tunnel is damp and muddy in places. Please wear suitable, closed-toe shoes. High heels are not advisable!

  • The Tunnel has a constant temperature of 12 degrees C. The walls are limewashed in places. We recommend that you wear a washable, warm jacket.

  • No animals are allowed in the Tunnel except trained assistance dogs.

  • Eating, drinking and smoking are not permitted in the Tunnel.
  • We reserve the right not to admit anyone who is under the influence of alcohol.

  • The Victoria Tunnel is an unfunded and not-for-profit project. In order to cover its running costs  the following charges apply, regardless of tour length: Adults £7, Under-16s £4. A concessionary charge of £4 for visitors on a low-wage may be available - please phone to arrange.

  • Tours are delivered by a team of Heritage Volunteers. Our guides are all volunteers and without them giving up their time the tours would not be possible. Please treat them with respect.
