As I understand it from all the way up here in North Wales that the Ramsgate Tunnels are a commercial concern.. Shame. Any other access?
Also if memory serves correctly there is at least one adit entrance on the East Cliff. I think it may be in the area of the San Clu Hotel, about 20/30ft below the railings. Has anyone dropped it and what's it like.
I used to live in a flat in the area many hundreds of years ago before being drawn to the " dark side" and always wondered.... so any info would be appreciated.
Intend to visit relatives this weekend. and may take a mooch.
Cheers

Original WW2 entrances at bottom of page.

I would suggest that entrance "E" is the one you refer to, a bit near the main attraction, (railway tunnel) to be open to casual explorers.
