D Day Tunnels

Event Showcase: D Day Tunnels

History of D Day Tunnels
The D Day Tunnels (Underground World War Two Command Centre) in Portsmouth, Hampshire are directly beneath Fort Southwick and they were excavated by the Royal Engineers in 1942.
700 staff worked here during the D-Day Normandy Landings by Allied troops during the Second World War.
After the war the tunnels ceased operations in 1949 then reopened during the 1956 Suez Crisis & during the Cold War. The Command Centre remained in use until 1974.
The existence of the D Day Tunnels was a closely guarded secret. The entrance to these tunnels are very uninteresting and unimposing.
Ghost Hunting
We have been investigating the #DDayTunnels since 2013 and have witnessed; strange whispering, voices, coughs, chills, talking, footsteps, doors closing and keys jangling not to mention pushing and shoving during our séances. The whole complex is eerie and it doesn’t matter what time of day or time of year you are in the tunnels it is always the same.
Just last year as we were waiting for the person to lock up, we were doing a final check to make sure we had all our equipment and two of us saw a person walking in the tunnels from a reasonable distance, we assumed it was the third member of our team although we wondered why he was walking in that direction but nevertheless we left the tunnels to wait outside and he was already outside and had been for 15 minutes! About 10 minutes after this the guy turned up to lock the venue, so it wasn’t him either!
Our favourite areas are; The large map room, the communication room and the old toilet area as well as the room halfway up the stairs (leading to the fort). Many of our guests have had some great personal experiences in the tunnels, but unfortunately for us we rarely have had cameras recording when the interesting stuff happens.
