The award winningBrighton Sewer Tours welcomes mobile, sensibly dressed over 11s to explore the underground facilities with an informed guided commentary.

The tour takes you along narrow, whitewashed corridors and up and down metal ladders to see the route of the day's waste and stormwater, which flows to a treatment plant to the east of the city before being pumped safely out to sea. As a working sewer, there is a smell but it is apparently not overpowering

You learn how the Victorians encouraged the flow with egg shaped tunnels, some one metre in diameter and others big enough to accommodate a double decker bus!

The meeting point for the Sewer Tours is underneath the Brighton Pier. Go down the stairs to the right-hand side (as you look at the pier) and at the bottom turn to face inland and you'll see a door with a Brighton Sewer Tours sign above it.

Be warned that ironically, given that the tour is of a sewer, there are no public conveniences.
