About 5 minutes to cross the Thames underwater in an old tunnel. Elevators (even though new) at both ends don't work - classic for the Brits. Not that many stairs, it's definitely not a problem if you're young. All in all, other than the fact...More

Loved being able to walk under the Thames. Walked from isle of dogs side to the curry sark exit. Saw a few wet small puddles, trust this was caused by condensation and not a leak. Ha ha. Takes about 5 mins to go through tunnel.

The tunnel connects the two sides of the river at Greenwich. The Greenwich tunnel was built in Victorian times in 1902. The tunnel is reached at each end by either a lift or stairs depending how energetic you are. The use of the tunnel is...More

Nothing to see here...it's just a tunnel that passes under the Thames,in straight line.Old,probably impressive as engineering achievement at the time of its inauguration but that's all.It has elevators at both ends so you don't have to use the old stairs.

It was fun walking under the thames. Both kids and grownups liked it. Our 4 yes old walked through part of it. Our six year old had no trouble. We went North and picked up the dlr on the other side.

A must for all tourists traveling to Greenwich the foot tunnel is a short walk into history passing under the river Thames joining Greenwich to the Isle of dogs and Canary Wharf. You feel like your in a Victorian submarine highly recommended.

This really is a hidden gem and you will just walk past if you don’t know about it. Get off the DLR at Island Gardens and the tunnel entrance is no more than 100 meters away. Look for the glass dome. It’s a great stroll...More

As I didn't go by car I didn't check that. I would imagine though after walking around the area that it is permit holders only. Although may be different at weekends. I'm sure if you "google" your question for yourself... More
