Steeped in history, Tunnels Beaches makes
a fascinating visit for all ages...

Hand carved in the 1820's, the four tunnels provide a truly unique experience. Read extensive history information throughout the site – including hilarious guides to Victorian etiquette for boys, girls and for when boating with ladies!

Learn how local entrepreneurs developed the tunnels and pools, and transformed Ilfracombe from a small fishing village into a popular seaside tourist resort.

Sit back and admire the lovely rugged scenery while the kids play safely in the tidal pool or explore our fantastic rock pools - we've been rated the 3rd best beach for rock pooling in the UK by BBC Wildlife Magazine.

Our award winning facilities include the very stylish and popular cafe blue bar, the play hut (indoor soft play – separate admission fee applies), beach shop and possibly the UK's most unique and breathtaking bespoke beach front wedding venue!
