The Woolwich foot tunnel crosses under the River Thames in Woolwich, in East London from Old Woolwich in the Royal Borough of Greenwich to North Woolwich in the London Borough of Newham. The tunnel offers pedestrians and cyclists an alternative way to cross the river when the Woolwich Free Ferry service is not operating. Both entrances to the tunnel (north entrance at 51°29′56″N 0°03′42″E and south entrance at 51°29′40″N 0°03′46″E) are Grade II listed buildings. The south entrance is somewhat hidden behind the Waterfront leisure centre. It is the oldest remaining building in the riverside area of Old Woolwich.Our London online trip maker makes visiting Woolwich Foot Tunnel and other London attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Takes about 20 minutes to walk through which is quicker than any other way of getting to the other side. Popular and well used very old historic tunnel. Could do with a bit of TLC more »
