If we discount the site of the QEB (Queen Elizabeth Building) as being 'too new' for hidden tunnels (built 1983) it really only leaves the 'old Royal' - Surgical, Centre & Medical block. As i said above, there's plenty of talk and stories of bricked-up openings but no actual proof.
On a practical level, where would such tunnels go anyway? One sugestion has been a link-up with the BT tunnel (diagonally across from the GRI beside the Oldest House) but even that seems tenuous at best.
