Fantastic morning out with family. Phil was our tour guide and he was very friendly and informative. The tour takes around an hour, a lot longer than what I was expecting. Our 8 and 14 year old both loved the tour.

The tunnels may only be open on Sunday, however the park is open all through the week and offers visitors the opportunity to learn about what it was like during WWII times. On a good clear day, this will be a place for great photography...More
