We really enjoyed this, both the history of Ramsgate town and the story of the war at home in Ramsgate and life in the tunnels. Our guide Mick was fantastic. We would highly recommend.

Visited the Ramsgate tunnels and was thoroughly impressed! Colin conducted the tour and was so informative, such history about the area I knew nothing about. The caves are remarkable, cold and damp but so wrap up warm this time of year. Really worth a visit!
