Be prepared to wait for a tour but it's definitely worth a stop and a visit. The tunnels were amazing to see and the tour guide was very helpful and informative. There was an audio guide which unfortunately they couldn't get to work for me...More

Amazing tunnels and their important part in the battles. Our guide was the only let down, we found her to be too robotic and not passionate. The tour also focused on the general war around whereas there was so much to focus on just on...More

Some war memorial trips can be too long or lack reverence. The guide here got it absolutely spot on. A sad story well told .

we booked in advance as we knew it was limited in space. Nicely done mix of audio guide and live presentation. There are walkable pathways so it is easy to get around. Parking is right onsite.

These tunnels, from WW1 snake under the town of Arras. The tour is guided and very interesting. The sheer size of it is awe inspiring to think how they were constructed. We did this as a part of the WW1 commemorations tour.

Tours are fully guided and timed. Don't know if they do advanced booking. We turned up on a quiet Sunday morning and waited 20 mins for our tour start.

You will be lucky to find a group that has pre booked. It's a brilliant place to visit and obviously very popular. Keep checking in for cancellations.
