A trip through the Ramsgate Tunnels is a dark little treat: an atmospheric tour underground where you'll wear hard hard and carry torches! Fun stuff for kids of any age who can handle the dark. Kids 3 to 7 can be admitted but this is at the discretion of the guide who is experienced enough to know generally who will and won't enjoy it.
The tunnels were built as a form of deep shelter around the 1940s, at one point housing over 1000 local citizens during the war. It's a unique opportunity to revisit the underground version of daily life in the shelters, great for kids schooling in wartime histories, but fascinating to imaginative kids of all ages.
Tours are generally around 1.25 kilometres and will last for approximately an hour. Dress with sensible shoes but not too many layers as the tunnel is a steady 11 degrees Celsius year round. Pushchairs and wheelchairs vary greatly so this kind of access is at the guide's discretion. Best to call ahead with the dimensions if you're uncertain.
