Guided City Walking Tour of Newcastle

The tour offers more sights than some other tours of the beautiful city of Newcastle. On it you will hear about the history of the city from the Iron Age to present day, and also about some of the city's more interesting characters.<br><br>The tour is less than 4km, does include some steps, and some uneven pavement.<br><br>Please come prepared according to the weather forecast for that day. <br><br>In the event of bad weather, please contact me through the message option here on TripAdvisor to see if the tour is still going ahead. Weather cancellations will be very rare.

We have been interested in the tunnel for a while however as I am claustrophobic we have never been so the virtual tour was ideal. Lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I have fond memories of my nan telling me about the tunnel during the war so it was nice to see this part of history.

Came a few days ago, although it was 30 quid for upto 6 people well worth the money for the 2 of us. Guide was very knowledgeable, it has an amazing history. Great hour spent

We booked the tour as a family of four and arrived a little early to find our lovely your guide Phil ready to greet us. We got kitted out and set off. Phil was fun and knowledgeable, interacting really well with our children who like us thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We highly recommend visiting the Victoria Tunnel, a fantastic slice of history. Big thank you to Phil also for the voucher which we were able to select one of the many options of where to go to eat after our visit, giving us a generous 20% off our lunch bill. A great start to the holidays.

We expected the experience to be informative, what we didn't expect was to be completely immersed in the history and the stories behind the tunnel, learn so much about a city we thought we knew, and have so much fun in the process. Dee and Pete are clearly passionate volunteers that know so much history about the place we were left feeling wowed! Will definitely be bringing people back! Thank you for a wonderful tour 😊😊

This is something we have wanted to do for years but never got round to. We have had a staycation at home but gone out for days and thoroughly enjoyed it. We booked the trip to the Victorian tunnels two days ago not expecting much due to the COVID restrictions. As you can only book in your family group there were only two of us costing £30 but if there were the maximum of six people it would obviously work out cheaper. We were met by Donald and Peter who took us down the tunnels firstly explanations by Donald giving us the history of the use of the tunnels during the 2nd world war as air raid shelters. It was comfortable to walk although best to wear boots as the floor can be wet in places. Also being 5ft 10 had to duck at sections of the tunnels. We then got the earlier history fromPeter how the tunnels had originally come to be built ending with a gruesome story which was very atmospheric. Really well done to the two guides made the hours tour very interesting and atmospheric. Would definitely recommend a visit.
