Now you can visit the secret underground WW1 city built by British Tommies





An underground city where thousands of British soldiers were housed in the First World War has been partly rebuilt and opened to visitors.

Situated deep beneath the town of Arras in the Artois region of France, it was used to protect up to 24,000 troops from constant German artillery bombardment.

Ten miles of tunnels linked a command centre, dormitories, kitchens and even a hospital.
