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.
You will be taken by our local Historian and Author on a Historic Tour of New Brighton followed by a visit located 30 feet below ground inside the Secret Munitions Tunnels and Former Air Raid Shelter. You will be visiting the Top Secret munitions Room 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. Now is your chance to view these old tunnels for yourself on a Special Historic Tour as we give you Exclusive access to visit these old Factory Room and See for yourself why we featured heavily in the Liverpool Echo and on local TV.
