History of the D Day Tunnels (Underground World War Two Command Centre)
The D Day Tunnels (Underground World War Two Command Centre) in Portsmouth, Hampshire has about 1.5 miles of linked tunnels directly beneath Fort Southwick and they were excavated by the Royal Engineers in 1942. These tunnels provided a bombproof, comprehensive Operation Control Centre.
The tunnels housed approximately 700 staff working on the Combined Operations Headquarters and the co-ordination of various military operations including the now famous "Operation Overlord" the codename for the D-Day Normandy Landings by Allied troops during the Second World War.
Reports from radar stations were crossed-referenced with messages from shipping to provide an accurate picture of what was happening in the English Channel. This information was then plotted on a large table map in the map room of the tunnel. Some of the functions of this Underground Command Centre were duplicated at the Bunker underneath Dover Castle.
After the war the tunnels ceased operations in 1949 then reopened again by the Royal Navy during the 1956 Suez Crisis when it was refurbished, they were used again in the early 1960s during the Cold War as the Defence Teleprinter Network of the NATO Communication Organisation and as a Communications Centre "COMMCEN" for the Royal Navy. During this time the Soviet Union identified Fort Southwick as a "Category A" target and consequently it was a main target for the Russians. The Command Centre Bunker remained in use right up until 1974.
During the history of the tunnels, deaths have been reported at this secret and important location. Many of the tunnel linings have been removed over the years exposing the original chalk walls, which gives the tunnels its eerie sensations.
The existence of the D Day Tunnels (Underground Second World War Command Centre) and its D-Day and Cold War connections was a closely guarded secret. The entrance to these tunnels are very uninteresting and unimposing.
Distant chilling screams are often heard as well as Spirit voices and strange aromas smelt in various parts of the tunnels.

What Happens at the Event
Our events are always 100% investigation and vigil events, we won't waste time by taking you on a history tour of the venue.
We will not usually talk about the history of the building unless people ask us to do so.
We don't hold workshops or briefing on equipment usage. Any equipment that you will be using throughout the event will be explained at the start of each session by our team leaders.
For the first few hours (usually 1 hour per session) you will be in a group and you will spend time with our Mediums doing séances, where they will try to get the active spirit to move you in some way (this is not designed to scare you) and with our paranormal investigators doing experiments, table tilting, glass divination, Ouija boards, EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments and other equipment experiments using the latest ghost hunting equipment.
After these controlled sessions you will have the opportunity to venture off on your own or in small groups to explore the venue or to hold lone vigils or re-visiting an activity that you enjoyed in our controlled sessions. In this part of the night you can use our ghost hunting equipment to do your own ghost hunt. You may take photos/videos with your own cameras throughout our ghost hunts. You may also use any of your own ghost hunting equipment during our controlled sessions.
