Before New Brighton was even born, the area was known as Black Rock and was plagued by Pirates, Smugglers and Fisherman. The History of the New Brighton Palace is a fascinating one, the tunnels are said to go back over 200 Years to the Times of the Wreckers & Smugglers and were later redeveloped when the Palace was built. The tunnels were then used as a munitions factory during WW2 and later became a nightclub known as The Creep.
Join us For the World War 2 Tunnels of New Brighton Tour located 30 feet below ground inside the Victorian Tunnels. You will be visiting the Top Secret munitions factory that operated throughout the Second World War and remained hidden away from public viewing until recently. This Secret base also had a big connection to the D-Day Landings in France. From 1942-44, the American Army came to town to help increase production in preparation for something big, all munitions were stored on the Tower Grounds and were later loaded onto boats, before they sailed off to Normandy at the end of May 1944. You will also be learning about the Myths & Legends from the area including the origins of the tunnels which go way back to the days of the Wreckers and Smugglers as we introduce you to the legends of the hidden passageways beneath New Brighton Resort
During the Second World War, The Ministry of Defence had a Secret Munitions Factory Hidden Away beneath the New Brighton Palace in the Victorian Tunnels. Between 1942 and 1944, the New Brighton Palace building was Depot 0616 of the U. S. Army: the cellars became an ammunition factory employing two hundred women, a base for fire watchers, and a communal air raid shelter, one entrance to which, a large iron grille, is still to be seen in Virginia Road at the back of the Palace.
