The tunnels are just a couple of minutes outside of arras and are very interesting.You put on a helmet and have audio with you and a guide as you travel around under ground.Definately worth a visit.

Really interesting site, staff at the reception and the young Lady who guided us round were great, very friendly and bi-lingual which helped us limited French speakers. Kids enjoyed it too!

Guided tour of the tunnels lasts an hour and is conducted in French and English. Really interesting and moving visit with lots of short films along the way giving further information to that told by the guide. Free car park outside. Well worth a visit.

It is close by and while waiting for the guided tour a walk around the wall is a good way to spend some time if the weather is good.

If you are in this area you should stop by and book a tour at this site. It was very worthwhile and so interesting. It did not take long and was not expensive. It added lots of information to our understanding of WW1
