The tunnels may only be open on Sunday, however the park is open all through the week and offers visitors the opportunity to learn about what it was like during WWII times. On a good clear day, this will be a place for great photography...More

Great afternoon spent on a tour of these tunnels, guide was really interesting and there is a lot to see. Probably more suited to families with teenage children and definitely not disabled friendly but a lot of interesting stuff to see there
