The Victoria Tunnel runs beneath the city of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne from the Town Moor down to the River Tyne and is now one of the must-see visitor attractions and heritage guided tours for visitors to NewcastleGateshead and locals alike. The entrance to the historic tunnel can now be found in Ouseburn, beside Hotel Du Vin. Victoria Tunnel 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.

Join the expert volunteers at Victoria Tunnel and don a helmet before setting off on a fascinating, underground guided tour. Experience the sounds of a wartime air raid and follow your knowledgeable 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.
