You can feel the past and picture the thousands living here 100 years ago as they dug their way towards the enemy front lines. The NZ tunnellers left the beginnings of a cultural identity carved into the walls. Many of those who survived came home...More

Approaching the centre there is no clue of the amazing experience that awaits. The tunnels set in an old quarry played a major role in the Battle of Arras sheltering up to 2,500 troops in a virtual underground city. The audio tour is excellent telling...More

Fascinating visit, well worth doing. I was disappointed as the partner of a NZ'er that we didn't see the names of the tunnels aa used in the advertising. I guess the signs are too deep, so in that case understand, but still wish we had...More

Great venue to visit. Amazing to see the tunnels underground where thousands of the forces lived during the war time. Gives a little more understanding of how amazing these men were and what they did for us, the future generations.

Not to be missed if you are in the area. Huge chalk mines expanded to accommodate WW1 allied troops.

If not this is a place I fully recommend. It is in the middle of a housing estate now but was once a well kept secret in the First World War. There are 12 miles of tunnels, you only get to do a few hundred...More

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.
We would like to visit on Saturday, April 15th, 2017, but we are not a group and it seems that it is fully booked. Is there a group we can join? We only have that one day in Arras.

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.
