Wellington Tunnels

Between 1914 and 1918, the frontlines of battle were never further than 10 kilometres from Arras. In 1916, a year of terrible losses, enterprising New Zealander tunnellers made use of the old chalk mines beneath Arras to form a subterranean network of chambers that held up to 24,000 Allied soldiers safe. You can tour these tunnels, and the ancient Les Boves caves beneath the town hall itself, too.
The truly amazing Wellington Tunnels - an underground city of ancient quarry tunnels which hid thousands of Allied soldiers in WWI – are not to be missed.
