Visitors and tourists know to go to Greenwich and see the Maritime Museum, Observatory and the Cutty Sark but they don't all walk under the Thames. The tunnel allows you to do exactly that and it's worth a picture and the experience. If you really...More

Very geeky but I was very excited to learn about this tunnel! It was great to think you were walking under the river, and the section with the bomb damage was interesting. However, aside from the novelty factor it’s just a nice way to cross...More

Another first for me. We chose a busy time (5pm+) and despite that it's supposed to be pedestrianised, some cyclists couldn't resist pedalling through it. I can understand why if this is your regular route. But for those of us strolling and wanting to enjoy...More

I had never heard of the Greenwich Foot Tunnel until recently, although I have visited Greenwich and seen the entrance building but did not know what it was (just looks like a public convenience from a distance). At either end of the tunnel there are...More

I had never heard of the Foot Tunnel until I stumbled upon it. There is a novelty in telling friends in the States that one walked under the Thames. It is a rather convenient way to cross the Thames if you are on foot. I...More

Even though I hail from London, somehow crossing under the River Thames from Greenwich to Island Gardens using this 370m long tunnel has eluded me until now so hoo-raaaah, made it at last and had a whale of a time going there and back!

It was a bit unnnerving going under the Thames but so worth it as it was definitely an experience. Not recommended for people with claustrophobia

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
