A great way to spend a relaxing summers afternoon in historic, picturesque surroundings. Very educational too.

Visited the tunnel beaches last week, a lovely little place and very interesting. But we were dissapointed that we only found out that the pools were not visible that day after we had paid. We assumed that the pools would be visible every day when the tide had gone out. The shop was also closed. Check first.

an interesting walk through the 3 tunnels to the sea, beach and tidal pool. Can imagine it gets very busy in the summer though!

An absolute gem! The children loved climbing over the rocks and looking at the Rock pools. If visiting Ilfracombe you really shouldn't miss this. It was also set up for a private wedding when we were there...that would have provided the most incredible setting for a wedding!

We were looking for a relaxed, unusual, private beach front venue with cool style, matchingdécor and a chilled ambience and Tunnels did not disappoint. Darren, Josh and Simon were fantastic throughout the planning, and guided us through so many decisions about... More

“I always dreamt of getting married on a beach, but due to my mother being poorly when it came to looking at a venue travelling abroad was a non starter. I thought my dream would never come true until I found Tunnels Beaches. You don’t need to travel thousands of miles for the beach wedding of your dreams when it’s... More

We loved Tunnels beaches venue as soon as we saw it and picked it over 5 or 6 other venues in the area, as well as various overseas venues. From meeting Darren initially to view the venue, to booking, to meeting Josh for a quick venue preview the day before both guys have been amazing. From start to finish Darren... More
