During World War Two, between 1942 and 1944, the New Brighton Palace arcade 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. Now is your chance to view these old tunnels for yourself on a Special Historic Tour.
Join Local Historian and Author Tony Franks-Buckley for an Exclusive Historic Walk and Special Trip Inside the Old Tunnels beneath New Brighton Palace introducing you to the History of The New Brighton Palace, The Wilkie Family, Ghost Tales, Other Myths and Legends of the Seaside Resort
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.
