Be prepared for the underground landscape to be moderately rugged. You’ll encounter six flights of stairs, uneven terrain and spotty lighting. So dress for the weather and leave the kitten heels at home.
You can buy your ticket in advance—online or by phone— up to two hours before the start of a tour. Call 206 682 4646. You also may purchase tickets in person at our ticket booth before your tour. It’s first come, first served, so we suggest you arrive early.
Don’t go hungry, for heaven’s sake. We have quick, fresh fare at the Underground Café, next to our ticket office at 608 First Avenue. You can even order (at an affordable price) a tour-and-lunch combo. The combo offers a choice of four items: grilled panini, grilled flat-bread sandwich, sliders, and soup and salad. A soft drink is included.
Don’t! Please take the bus or light rail (metro.kingcounty.gov)! But if you really want to drive, there is parking available throughout the neighborhood both on the street and in parking garages.
We accept credit cards online, over the phone, and at our ticket office.
As many as you want, depending on availability, of course. If your group is larger than 10 adults, or has a significant number of children or students, you can have the Underground all to yourself with a private tour. Private tours must be booked two weeks in advance. Please contact us at 206 682 4646.
