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

Stopped by en-route to another destination in France; we'd seen the signs over the years and always intended dropping in if the chance arose. Well, it did and we weren't disappointed. Extremely well laid out, with informative and detailed displays detailing the site and it's context with regard to WWll generally. Very good loudspeaker audio presentations at the various stopping...

This was very near to where I was staying at the Gandspette campsite. Looking at the outside you would not believe what lay behind. Very much helped you get a sense of what the war meant to the people there. So well laid out, the sound system is good and adds to the atmosphere. Fascinating trip which is pretty much... More

We didn't know what to expect but the whole exhibition was incredible. Very well laid out exhibits with detailed explanations using audio at strategic points. Well worth a visit especially on a nice day as it's all outdoors.
