The Tunnels is an independent Bristol live music and club, conveniently situated in the heart of Temple Meads, next to the main railway station. The 360 capacity venue opened its doors in October 2009 and has been lucky enough to some fantastic artists perform there over the years including SuperSonic and Laurence Jones
. Although it is a rather cosy venue, it is a unique one as is housed in two old former railway archers that have been transformed into the brilliant entertainment venue that appears today.
Getting to The Tunnels is really easy whatever method of travel you are taking. Just head for Temple Meads Railway Station and look for Lower Station Approach, and you can not miss it as is directly opposite The British and Commonwealth Museum.
