Due to the recent Government announcements, Tunnel Pods will remain closed for the winter season. 

We aim to reopen in the spring but will announce any updates when we can. 

In the meantime stay safe and we hope to be able to welcome you once again very soon!

The Tunnel Tree Tops is an award winning high ropes and zip wire adventure course running through the woodland at The Tunnel, Charmouth.

An adrenaline-pumping, bird’s eye experience which is made up from a complex of rope bridges, zip wires and walkways giving you the freedom to explore. Our course is built to help grow confidence as you go, starting at ground level you will work your way out into the trees, gradually gaining height before sliding down one of our zip wires! The course comprises of fourteen elements ranging from a tightrope walk to three different zips, one is suspended 20ft in the trees!

This course has all abilities in mind and for those with confidence at height we offer separate challenges and tasks to help make the obstacles more difficult allowing everyone to be rewarded with the proud feeling of accomplishment.

Great fun for everyone aged 6 and above (participants must be a minimum of 1.2 metres tall and weigh no more than 18 stone).


The high ropes provides a lasting experience for daring families, couples and groups of friends!

The Target Sports Centre Ltd. opened in July 2010 in The Tunnel, a former road tunnel in Dorset to provide a range of shooting experiences for members of the public and training opportunities for the security industry. The Target Sports Centre initially comprised two small-bore ranges, and in 2012 we opened our indoor 100m full-bore range to cater for rifles up to .50BMG.

The Target Sports Centre Ltd has three ranges on site. In the old road Tunnel we have a 25m, 4 point small-bore range and a 35m, 4 point small-bore range, each suitable for .22 target shooting, gallery rifle, black powder mini-rifle practical shooting and any pistol shooting that happens at The Tunnel.

The Centre also comprises a 5 point 100m full-bore range, suitable for up to .50 calibre and wide range of shooting activities to choose from.

The Centre also has an on site cafe, gun shop, ammunition reloading suite, accommodation, 3 classrooms and a laser judgemental suite.
