As we gear up to opening tours of the tunnel and lighthouse, Sunderland Strollers came on one of our practice tours.
It was a sunny day in June this year when members of Sunderland Strollers running club took a walk through the tunnel which runs underneath Roker pier. The Strollers were one of the groups acting as our 'guinea pigs' offering our group feedback on the tour before we open to the public later this year.
Sunderland Strollers is a sociable running club with a sense of humour which is based at Ashbrooke Sports Club. They have over 300 members with 40% women and an age range from 21-72. You can find out more about them here.
You can find out more about the tours of the tunnel and lighthouse here. And as soon as our website is able to take bookings for the tour we'll be announcing it here on our website and on our social media.
