The Greenwich tunnel, would you dare to spend a night there?

Greenwich tunnel was built from 1899 and opened in 1902 connects Greenwich with Isle of Dogs and is open 24 hours a day and for pedestrians only. The tunnel is all in iron and is 370 meters long.

The tunnel had been designed by civil engineer Sir Alexander Binnie to replace an expensive and unreliable ferry service, allowing workers from the south of the Thames to easily get to work at the port or shipyards in or near the Isle of Dogs .

The tunnel is accessible via spiral staircases and large lifts which were renovated between 2010 and 2012.

If you want to have a supernatural experience you have to go there at night, in fact those who cross it at night often hear voices and strange noises and every now and then someone claims to have seen apparitions of women dressed according to the fashion of the early twentieth century.

The entrances at either end are under glazed domes. The elevators, installed in 1904, were updated in 1992 and again in 2012, and spiral staircases allow pedestrians to access the sloping, tiled tunnel.

The question is would you dare to go there at night?
