Really interesting tour, get to carry your own Hurricane Lamp. Used for flint and chalk mining, WWI shell storage, mushroom growing, WWII Air Raid Shelter for 15,000, Jazz, Skiffle and Rock & Roll venue.

A genuinely pleasant and interesting surprise. Living locally, I thought I'd give it a go, expecting a hum-drum trip with desperate guides trying to make it sound remotely interesting. I couldn't have been more wrong. The place is pretty amazing. I won't spoil it too...More
