Take an unusual one-hour tour through 366 metres of sewers and learn how the Victorians built the tunnels and structures underground. The tour starts at Palace Pier under the arches and you will see a steel door open. Guides who are full-time employees of Southern Water will invite you in.

First you will watch an interesting short video on the history of the sewers and will be given a short safety briefing. The tour takes about an hour and it ends by climbing up a 15ft ladder and through a manhole into the middle of Old Steine Gardens. You may see some strange looks from tourists as you emerge into the open air!

You will need to book the tour in advance as they sell out very quickly because they are so popular. It is best to wear walking boots and cover your legs. The sewer tour only takes place in the summer and only a few times a week so it is best to check the ‘Southern Water’ website for more accurate details, and the prices of the tours.

Opening Times: May to September

Costs: Please check website for costs.
