Visited as part of an excursion from a cruise ship. We had the best tour guide who was ex military so I think he made the history of the tunnels a lot more interesting since he had inside knowledge and past experience of being posted...More

If interested in Second World War this is a must. If not you will find interesting anyway. We moan about simple things in life and when you hear what our soldiers experience in these tunnels and why they dug out you may think again about...More

There are no records that are generally available but the tour guides might be able to send you in the right dorection. I think that the records will be stored somewhere knowing how much the Brits love beaurocracy.
