If you are you Arras, it's worth to visit but if you cannot, you don' t miss anything. The guided tour is really short and the explanations are very general. Time of the visit doen't correspond to real time. 3:30 instead of 3:00

An underground world is hiding beneath the place des Héros, in the center of Arras. The tour provides the historical background to the site. Its history starts as a stone quarry. When buildings arose on top of the site, excavations were stopped. The place was...More

Beautiful underground. I would recommend combing the ticket with the Beffroi and the Carriere Wellington. Guided tour which lasts around 45-60 minutes. Guide was fluent in English and polite. Interesting history of Arras on how the tunnels have been used over the centuries.

Always want to know what's beneath the centre of Arras? Take this tour and explore the several purposes of the caves beneath street level. From the early 9th century to World War 1!

Loved this tour. The guide was brilliant. She spoke beautiful English and kept checking we understood what she'd said. The tunnels are really interesting...carved out in the 16th century, then had a range of uses as the years passed. Particularly enjoyed the historical facts as...More

Entrance under the tourist office. Probably for safety reasons, only a small portion of the underground quarry is open for the tour. Lots of information, but nothing of any substantial value. 12° C in the tunnels under the Place des Heros, a bonus as it...More

As on of the top attractions of Arras i had hoped this would be a little more exciting. The tour lasted about 45 mins and there were some interesting points but nothing to really make you want to go back or highly recommend to others....More

This 45 minute tour takes you under Arras into the quarry tunnels. Whilst it's interesting, it's made a little tedious by having mixed language tours, and as the commentary his fairly lengthy, and is repeated in different languages, if you don't have an engaging tour...More
