Explore Greenwich Foot Tunnel

By BillBlogger 13 Sep 2016

Greenwich is filled with amazing spots to visit and soak up some culture.

And the Foot Tunnel is another great place to do just that!

It was originally built in 1902  to provide reliable all-weather access for local residents to the London shipyards and docks on the north side of the Thames.

  • Today the tunnel is used by 1.2 million people a year, stretching from Cutty Sark to Island Gardens, Tower Hamlets.
  • The tunnel is 370 metres long and 15 metres deep.
  • It is open 24 hours a day with CCTV in operation for your safety, especially as the echoes created by the sounds of fellow walkers entering the tunnel can make for a very eerie experience

You can enter the tunnel at Cutty Sark Gardens, Greenwich,
