Updated 19th July 2021 - For the safety of our visitors and guides, we will continue to only run tours for single household groups of up to six people. Visitors and Guides are required to wear face-covering whilst inside the Tunnel.

If you'd like to learn about the Tunnel without an in-person visit, enjoy the Virtual Victoria Tunnel Experience from your home. 


We are currently offering one-hour Victoria Tunnel tours for single households (or support bubbles) at a flat fee of £30 per tour. This offer will help keep visitors and Tour Guides safe, adhering to social distancing and COVID-19 guidance. Additional tour amendments include:

  • Guides will wear clear visors and disinfect torches and helmets between use
  • Visitors must use the hand sanitiser provided on arrival and wear a face-covering inside the Tunnel
  • Bookings are only available for a single household or support bubble containing two to six people
  • The tour will meet at the Tunnel Entrance on Ouse Street

If you have a gift voucher without a Discount Code, wish to arrange a private group visit or have any questions about the tours please email the Victoria Tunnel Team.

We hope to run more general tours from September and will be making tours for the rest of the year available to book on this calendar at the start of August.
