New Ramsgate Tunnels attraction set to open this summer
A network of tunnels under Ramsgate in Kent is set to be turned into the town’s latest tourist attraction this summer. Extended from a Victorian railway tunnel, the passages were first created as an extensive air raid shelter where around 26,000 people took refuge during bombing in the Second World War. Creating new subterranean communities, the townspeople were visited by eminent figures of the day, including Churchill. Plans include guided tours and exhibitions.
