Victoria Tunnel Secondary Resized DC
The Victoria Tunnel runs beneath the city from the Town Moor down to the Tyne. It was built in 1842 to transport coal from Leazes Main Colliery to riverside staithes (jetties) ready for loading onto ships. In 1939, it was converted into an air-raid shelter to protect hundreds of Newcastle citizens during World War II. Experience the sounds of a wartime air raid and follow your guides underground to discover the Tunnel's role as a colliery wagonway. Listen out for the oncoming coal wagons! The Tunnel is open all year round to the public for guided tours which include fantastic sound and visual effects, running regularly throughout the year. See the Victoria Tunnel website at www.ouseburntrust.org.uk for tour times.
