In our party were 4 adults and 4 children. When you arrive it's hard to imagine this place being any good. I was surprised once we were inside. It cost us £27 for a family of 4. You are guided through the tunnels/caves by 2 different pirates. These we could not fault. We had a laugh from start to finish... More

Both my kids loved it but we didn't go in the scary part cause we were all chickens but because of that I felt it was a bit pricey and really short, there should be a lower price for those who don't go in there. However the staff were in full character which was so cool so would recommend it... More

Went in with our 4 year old and he really enjoyed it, even went in the scarry bit which he was a bit scared but made it through ok. Would recommend as entertaining for youngish kids but not if your looking for facts about pirates as one previous reviewer complained about. If you're not surr what to expect, ask before... More

We were with one other couple who were strange to say the least! When we got to King Arthur she chirped in with she'd seen the series Merlin! Calico Jack our guide tried to humour her but it was totally lost on her! The tour was ok but if you have kids they would like it better! One slightly scary... More

we were the only people on the tour. When we first saw and heard the pirate showing us around, I didnt think I would be able to tolerate his shouting! He was very interesting though and we had a very interesting tour. I think it was very expensive and probably far too much to take a large family.

Me and my boyfriend decided to visit Tunnels Through Time whilst on holiday because it seemed like it would be interesting. We were wrong. When we got there, we paid and the bloke behind the counter said "now that I have your money, you do know what you're letting yourself in for right?". We said no and he went on... More

A friend and I love pirates and what a brilliant way to have a giggle! Our tour pirate was funny, witty and full of information. The displays are brilliant and make other larger attractions look amateurish! Plenty to see and read, we loved it best time ever. Planning a family return in full pirate dress just for jack sparrow. Well... More
