I didn't know what I wanted from life before I walked down this tunnel every day after school. The tunnel made me the man I am today. You merely adopted the tunnel; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the light...More

My friends and I visit this iconic tunnel every year. It’s properties in keeping one dry are well documented and I can attest to its proclivity in that area too. What is perhaps not so well known is that this tunnel has taken us from...More

Had to walk the tunnel (even though Sainsbury didn't have what I was looking for) and it didn't disappoint!

This is a plastic tunnel, shelters you from the rain, wide enough to pass with a trolley and you can watch the seagulls sitting on the roof....what more can you say!

Perspex tunnel from the car park at the rear of the supermarket leading to the entrance. Only good thing to say about it is it keeps you dry if it rains. Probably cooks you in the summer months!!

Always value the shelter when I have shopping. have not had a picnic yet but it could be a bit draughty

Didn't bother to visit this!! Bude has so much more to attract visitors than a plastic tunnel. Go and explore elsewhere.

Did you actually visit the tunnel? It would be great if you could tell us what you didn't enjoy, the 300 plus reviews that have made us the no.1 thing to do in Bude seem to demonstrate that we are most definitely on the radar!

To fully encounter Trolls and as you say Daemons, arrive just before 3.30 weekdays, term time only. You are sure to spot some lurking around, mostly wearing blue. As regards the ghosts..... that’s an after dark experience... More
