Two Tunnels
Plan a trip

Underground, overground… cycling free?

The most eye-catching new cycleway in Britain for years, the Two Tunnels route plunges deep below Combe Down to take cyclists between Bath and the picturesque Midford Valley. 

The old Somerset & Dorset Railway's tunnels and viaducts have been turned into a family-friendly bike route which combines with the Kennet & Avon Canal and Collier's Way to form a 12-mile, mostly traffic-free circuit. An unmissable ride.

Gentle music plays as you make your way through the well lit tunnels. Then, all of a sudden, you emerge into the peaceful Somerset countryside. There are pubs at Midford and nearby Monkton Combe (on the Collier’s Way return route) for refreshment.
