More about this marker.
Regarding Greenwich Foot Tunnel. The Greenwich Foot Tunnel allows people to walk freely under the Thames River between Greenwich and the East End of London. It is ľ mile long.
The tunnel entrances on both sides of the river have lifts, making the tunnel wheelchair accessible. Cyclists are asked to dismount while using the tunnel. The long passageway is somewhat dank, with puddles of water suggesting minor leakage in spots.
