Greenwich Foot Tunnel



Greenwich Foot Tunnel

Greenwich's 24hr foot tunnel under the Thames.

Location: Cutty Sark Gardens, Greenwich, London

Description: This remarkable foot tunnel was designed by Sir Alexander Binnie, and after costing 127k opened in August 1902 so that south London residents could go to work easily in the docks on the Isle of Dogs.

The tunnel provides pedestrian access between Cutty Sark Gardens, Greenwich and Island Gardens, across the Thames river. The riverside at Island Gardens gives a splendid view of Maritime Greenwich.

The tunnel is 1,217 feet long and runs about 50 feet under the River Thames.

Two hundred thousand glazed white tiles line the tunnel walls.

The Foot Tunnel is open 24 hours a day. There are about a hundred steps on each end, or you can take the lift when it is operating.
