Members visits



Banqueting Hall

Our members-only visits are extended tours of the non-public sections of the tunnels. This means that in addition to viewing the Paddington site, members continue on to explore the newly discovered basement of Joseph Williamson’s house, including the Wine Bins and some surprising finds. Then you will go further down into the Sandstone Arch, the Gash and finally, for now, the amazing Banqueting Hall.

We also welcome booking requests from members the 2nd Sunday of the month visits. see Non-Members Visits for dates and times.

Visits dates for 2019 will be available and online soon, as a new self online booking system. Please check back soon for this update.
