About this location

The Victoria Tunnels are subterrainean waggonways which run from Newcastle to the River Tyne. Built between 1839 and 1842 their purpose was to transport coal from Leazes Main Colliery to riverside jetties for loading and shipment to various locations.


The tunnels are dug from clay and formed with a base of stone which supports a brick arch. The colliery closed in 1860 which made the tunnels redudant until the outbreak of World War 2 when the tunnels were made into air raid shelters complete with wooden benches, bunk beds, chemical toilets, air blast defences, and a number of new entrances.


The full length of the tunnels is 2.4 miles and they run directly under the sea at a depth of 222', it remains largely intact.
