Enjoyable flat walk through these 2 tunnels. Very clean inside. Cyclists also use this path but I wish all of them would use lights and bells. We visited on a hot day and it was delightful to enter the tunnels to cool off. It is...More

Did the Two Tunnels Circuit with my wife earlier this week. Took around 4 hours which included plenty of stops for photos and lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the tunnels and it was refreshingly cool on such a warm day! The ride along the...More

Very long main tunnel with adequate lighting, the lights on one wall of the shorter tunnel were out (there were warning signs of reduced lighting at the entrance) which did make it quite tricky. There is actually a third tunnel (very short) just before Midford...More

A real hidden gem. A fabulous bike ride. Climbing steadily out of Bath up to the tunnels. A great surface , lighting and piped music. It is so different and a memory of a lifetime

A quite wonderful cycle ride and if you are in Bath you absolutely have to do this, or if in Bristol cycle the Bristol to Bath route and do this when you are almost at the end..superb and not like anything I have cycled before.
