Presentation

20 metres below the pavements of Arras, discover the Wellington tunnels, a site immersed in memory and emotion. In november 1916, the British started preparing for the 1917 spring offensive. 

Their stroke of genius: to have the NEw Zealand tunnellers connect up the town's chalk extraction tunnels to create a real network of underground barracks large enough to accommodate up to 24,000 soldiers .

After a 20-metre descent in a glass-fronted lift, the audio guided and escorted visit plunges the visitor into the site's atmosphere.  Trough the projection of a film, coming to the surface in the soldier's foosteps bring the shock of battle to life.
