Historically, this 2.5 mile wagonway tunnel from the Town Moor to the Tyne is one of the most intriguing places in the city. It was built to transport coal, but during WWII, became an important bomb-raid shelter for over 9000 locals. The only way to visit is by guided tour, but that’s also the best way to visit. Each tour is a production of light and sound full of fantastic effects – they recreate the history of the tunnel for you.
