The Virtual Victoria Tunnel Experience is a subterranean adventure you can enjoy from the comfort of your own sofa. All you need is a mobile phone, tablet or computer that's connected to the internet.

You’ll be joined live by one of Victoria Tunnel's award-winning tour guides who’ll use video and images to take you through the Tunnel and share the many stories it lives to tell. You'll be able to interact and ask questions using a chatbox, but you won't be visible through audio or webcam.

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.
