Discover the secret world of nuclear government. For over 50 years this vast underground complex, remained secret, hidden on the outskirts of a sleepy Cheshire town. Declassified in 1993, the 35,000 sq ft underground bunker would have been the centre of Regional Government had nuclear war broken out. The bunker today offers a warm welcome to anyone looking for a totally different day out.

If in the area this is a "must see". Frightening to see how close we came to WW3 and how the situation was monitored. Was amazed at how advanced the "electronics" and surveillance was during the Cold War period, and we must all be grateful that these Bunkers were in fact not actually needed for their true purpose.

Bought a groupon deal to visit here. When we first arrived the service by the young girl behind the counter was awful. Her male colleague was not much better either. It seemed a lot of trouble to them that we had the voucher rather than cash. Anyway, we walked around and found a lot of the information interesting. There are... More

A very interesting and thought provoking place to visit. Left with the feeling that any form of civil defence would have been totally useless, and given how nuclear weapons have "improved"since Hack Green was built. Do visit.

living locally we have intended on visiting here for a long time. We finally did today and although we found it interesting it was a bit vboring for the kids. They do try by having a mice trail and you have to count the secret spy mice, however this just made them want to rush from room to room hoping... More

Went here with a Groupon voucher , greeted by friendly staff who informed us about where to start the tour and gave the children a map to find spy mice and rats (not real) and count them on their way round. Lots to see interesting to see the tv and radio studio as well as home office stand. Yes it... More

Excellent place to visit, plenty to see, almost everything is below ground on two levels. There are lots of rooms to investigate and they are crammed with items from the cold war era. The whole visit is really interesting and very informative, well worth the entrance price. If you are unsure where the main entrance is the white cat will... More

Having read a few negative reviews, I wasn't sure what to find. Well I enjoyed it every much as did my family, there is so much to see, and read you really could spend all day there. The food wasn't great but was ok, likewise the range of merchandise. The place itself is a veritable rabbit warren, with room full... More

Well worth a visit on a rainy day. It is true, you need to wear your coat as it is chilly! However, there is loads to see and it is informative and thought provoking. The mannequins are hilarious and the one with the exotic blue eye shadow made us all chuckle. Sitting in the fallout room with the simulate bombs... More

Had been wanting to visit the Bunker for a couple years and I certainly wasn't disappointed with all the memorabilia contained within and information available The documentary was particularly descriptive and thought provoking. The way round was well signposted, with little rooms which lit up on entry, bit spooky to suddenly see the mannequins in their forces regalia!!! I was... More
