Experience The World War II Tunnels

a fortress inside a fortress, a city within a city

World War II Tunnel, Gibraltar

Gibraltar Tours

The World War II Tunnels were built by the Royal Engineers in preparation of war during the 1940’s when Britain was at war with Germany and Italy, as the future looked bleak for Gibraltar as the enemy surrounded it and an attack was highly probable.

Winston Churchill and the British military leaders believed that an attack on Gibraltar was imminent therefore the answer was to construct a massive network of tunnels, to build a fortress inside a fortress, a city within a city.

Follow in the Footsteps of Churchill... 

In May 2005 the World War II Tunnels were opened to the general public and now you too can follow in the footsteps of Churchill, Sikorski and De Gaulle and walk through this amazing testament to the soldiers and civilians who toiled in the very bowels of the Rock during the darkest days of the War.
