Ed Sheeran builds secret tunnel to underground pub

Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has revealed he has built a secret tunnel to a private pub underneath his home in North London.

In an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Sheeran said: “I’ve built a pub. Like, I had a bar before, a bar where you could pour beers but now this has like a selection of beers, which is cool”.

The private pub is accessed via a secret underground passage meaning that partygoers can be sealed off from the rest of the house, “so you get no-one raiding the cupboards or smashing anything”, said Sheeran.

The singer was apparently inspired to install the secret watering hole and underground passage having visited film director Peter Jackson’s home.

“Peter Jackson’s house [has] got like loads of secret passageways and underground tunnels,” said Sheeran. “I went there and was like I want all of this on a smaller scale.”

Sheeran returned after a three-year hiatus earlier this month with new singles ‘Shape Of You’ and ‘Castle On The Hill’, ahead of the release of his third album, ‘÷’, on March 3.
