A day trip to Folkestone? To look around a train terminal? Sounds good!
In September, Eurotunnel will be opening its doors as part of the European Heritage Open Days, for only the second time.
On Saturday 13 September 2014, visitors will be taken on a guided tour of the Eurotunnel terminal in Folkestone (Kent). [map link]
Each guided coach tour lasts 90 minutes and offers an opportunity to find out more about the Eurotunnel transport system and its unique Shuttles. The tour starts with a presentation illustrating “20 years of the Channel Tunnel”.
Tours start at 9am and run on the hour throughout the day until 6pm. (50 places available per tour). Tours are free of charge.
Book your places here.
Hat tip to SubBrit for the heads up about this.
If you can’t make it, there is also a maintenance shed in London, which has very rare tours as well.
