Cross the Thames for Free in the Greenwich Foot Tunnels

If you want a fun experience and don’t want to pay to cross the Thames into Greenwich on the Tube – consider using the free Victorian era foot tunnels that cross under the river.

The Greenwich Foot Tunnel is a pedestrian tunnel under the Thames that runs between Greenwich and Island Gardens on the other side of the river. There are about a hundred steps at each end but it’s free and open 24 hours a day. The tunnel just went through a refurbishment and there are new elevators if you won’t want to brave the stairs.

The Woolwich foot tunnel is a tunnel crossing under the River Thames in East London from Woolwich in the London Borough of Greenwich to North Woolwich in the London Borough of Newham. There are currently no lifts while the tunnel is being renovated – there’s also free ferry you can take as well called the Woolwich Free Ferry.

We’ve done this one and it was a lot of fun!
