Having done this tour 30yrs ago with the British military, I was pleased that it still amazed me. The achievements made in the the whole tunnelling process in the late 18th century were astounding. Self-guided, there was enough info in English and Spanish to keep people interested. Be aware that to get the full experience, including seeing the additional tunnelling done by the British in WWII (not the WWII tunnel tour) takes about 30 mins longer and involves a long, steep walk back. Great views across the frontier.

This is well worth a visit. The tunnel is free with a nature reserve ticket. The tunnels located at the northern end of the rock and was dug by hand by the British during the great siege in the 18th century. This limestone tunnel is surprisingly long and slopes downward. About half way down the tunnel there is a staircase that takes you down to a lower level. Think this was one of the places for storing the gunpowder. It’s amazing how a small group of men achieved digging and blasting this tunnel in the short amount of time it took to create. You can even see the gun ports in the cliff face from Spain.
