Members’ Visits

Our member’s visits for 2017, which give members the chance to do a full tour of the Non-Public tunnels under the care of the Friends of Williamson’s Tunnels will be held on:

  • Wednesday 14th June 2017
  • Saturday & Sunday 22nd & 23rd July 2017
  • Saturday & Sunday 23rd & 24th September 2017

On these special Members tours you will be given the opportunity to visit the following three Williamson’s Sites:

  • Paddington
  • Banqueting Hall, including the Sandstone Arch and the Gash.
  • Wine Bins.

There have been a lot of changes in the tunnels over the last few years, with new areas for you to see and explore, especially at Williamson’s House Site where we are currently digging. Of course, you will probably not recognise Paddington from the Paddington of old, with its incredible cathedral like chamber deep underground. If however, you are a new member and have never visited us yet, then please do come and see us.

Your Members’ tour will include:
