I love walking through tunnels, so here’s a few photos of my wander through the 1902 foot tunnel under the Thames.
Running from Greenwich to the Isle of Dogs, the 1,217 ft tunnel contains no less than 200, 000 white tiles…
There’s a lift at both ends, bit the spiral staircase is more fun. On the way down, at least.

(but nice photos all the same!)
Fantastic pictures – gave me a good old fashioned nostalgia glow at work this morning…
In many years of living in Greenwich, I spent a year + walking to work in Docklands; along the river from the old (now demolished) hospital, past the Trinity Hospital, through the foot tunnel and along East Ferry Road to Crossharbour.
In the worst of the weather throughout the winter, there was something most welcoming about the glow of the glass domes capping the lift / stairwells. A quality constitutional that freed the mind from the dumbing pain of work!
The official site seems to be referring to flash photography:
I didn’t use flash! 🙂
