Book ahead. A little tricky to find, the entrance is under the stairs to the right hand side of the pier. It was our first experience and we didn’t really know what to expect. Firstly, even if it’s blisteringly hot, do wear appropriate footwear as...More

Decided after a period of 30 years to revisit the sewer tour. Nice and interesting but could have been so much better if there was more of the history involved. Maybe a photo gallery of the sewers being built, or a schematic of the system...More

This is a great way to get a little bit of fascinating history on Victorian civil engineering. I'll say from the start it's not getting 5* because it was a little difficult to find and on Google mapping it, a simple edit stating it's simply...More

Just had fun taking this Southern Water tour. Quite hard to get tickets as they are booked up quickly. Very informative chat , then a guided tour of these Victorian brick built sewers. Not too smelly and not claustrophobic, the tour takes about an hour....More

My partner loved it.... I thought it was ok.... It is clever looking at how the sewers are built and learning some of the history. It didn't smell as bad as I was expecting once you adapt to it. It's about an hour long, including...More

I had been trying to get a ticket for the Sewer Tour for two years, and it was well worth the wait... everything I'd hoped for and more! The guides are excellent and engaging (and all have first-hand experience working the sewers themselves) and the...More

I took my eleven and thirteen year old granddaughters on this tour and they both found it interesting and took a while to get used to the initial whiff! This is a proper sewer so sensible shoes and long trousers are required. Several people turned...More

We booked for the 9.30am to avoid it being too hot and smelly underground. I needn't have worried, it's a static temperature all year round and it was more like a 'damp towel discovered after a week' smell. It was so fascinating and the guides...More
