Another site that is both a tour and a memorial. Very well done. Some of it you may find hard to see. However it shows how incredible mankind can be, both in their ingenuity and their forbearance. Obviously it shows how evil and cruel people can be. There is a lot to see and take in and for many will... More

We only found out about it by talking to people on a motorhome site when we were visiting a D-day museum. It is a mind blowing experience, which when we walked round the path and came out of the trees to see the WW2 V2 bomb making factory building, it was unreal! It is a very good site with a... More

We weren't sure what to expect and decided at the last minute to visit, we weren't disappointed. The size of the bunker was spectacular. You can walk around at your leisure and listen to the audio descriptors in a number of different languages. The scale of the bunker is unbelievable and it hadn't even been completed before the allies bombed... More

We had no idea what to expect as the description in the flyer we picked up didn't really do it justice…this is a very disturbing place but one that everyone should visit to understand what weapons of mass destruction are all about. Its like a cross between the lunatic climax to an old James Bond film and Thunderbirds - except... More

We visited this place today and found it to be very interesting, although the site was never actually used for launching the rockets. The audio descriptions are very good and give enough info without getting too involved. The other relics around the site are also of interest. A little bit disappointed with the interior of the blockhouse as I had... More

The visit was arranged by my father in law so I had no idea what we were going to visit, on arrival you enter via a small gift shop and then start the tour round the site. The first stop is two covered cattle wagons with metal footprints attached to the floor to give an impression what the travel conditions... More

I have been to many exciting places, but this is the biggest bunker I have visited (except the German submarine bunkers). The bunker measures 75 x 40 x 28m (width x length x height), roof and walls are constructed of 5 m thick reinforced concrete. Interior height is approximately 16 m. The project was stopped and developed further because of... More
