Blackout Tour



SIE000002_0.png

About this event


Described at the time as ´the world´s worst assault from the air´, the 24th August 1940 remains etched on the memories of those who were present in Ramsgate that day. Over 500 bombs were dropped on Ramsgate in under five minutes causing mass devastation to the town.

Join us on our special Blackout Tour on the 79th anniversary of that raid, and find out about the events of the day, and how the people of Ramsgate coped in the aftermath. The tour will begin at the Tunnel entrance with the sounding of our air raid siren at 6.55pm, the time of the last raid that day. The tour will then proceed into the Tunnels lit only by  by hand held paraffin hurricane lamps and will finish with the sounding of the all clear at 8.10pm.

Due to the restricted visibility on the tours and the personal lighting to be used, it is deemed unsuitable for those aged twelve years and below and for those with restricted vision.
