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. « less

We made a detour on our recent canal holiday but found the attraction locked up at 10.00am on a midweek morning during the school holidays. The canal side signs should be amended to include the opening times.

I would normally never go to see something like this, but because of my parents being born in the UK it was very enlightening to see. The history of what happened and how technology was used back in the day. I brought my children aged 9 & 12 and they found it very interesting to see how things were done... More

We are a family of 4, two adults and two teenage boys. On arrival I wasn’t too sure what to expect but wasn’t disappointed, well worth the visit. I remember being in School in the early 80’s and it was always talked about, The Cold War and Nuclear Warfare. So I had a deep rooted fear of it. Our visit... More

As someone who is interested in things like this, it was a good trip out. Lots of interesting and interactive things to do. Scary to see what would have happened if a nuclear war would have happened. I thought it would have been bigger than it was, but it was still good. The food from the cafe was good and... More

Being quiet interested in cold war politics I found Hack Green both interesting and eerie. I can remember in the 80s when the threat of nuclear war was scarily real and Hack Green bought it all back. I do wonder how many people knew of it's existence back in those days? Well worth a visit to educate and inform.

Travelling up the Shropshire Union canal we decided to stop and visit the bunker. Plenty of good moorings before and after bridge 85. An easy walk from the canal takes you to the bunker a bit short of signage to show you the way in apart from MOD type signs so you need to interpret them a bit. Being of... More

So this is what you do with a disused Nuclear Bunker ! We visited on a grey wet Sunday which was a good setting to revisit the Cold War Years! I can remember sitting in school looking at a world map as the USA blockaded Cuba, the U2 incident etc. Lots of equipment that now looks so dated in our... More

An interesting activity - easy to find despite the name and a very interesting piece of history - it's been well set up and is fascinating for young and older - worth a look - it's great to be able to see all the old tunnels and the telephony room is a real iSight into how communication would have worked

Came here on a day out. It was very pleasant, some really interesting articles and things to see. You have to be really into this sort of thing, I know my dad would have appreciated it, as he knows so much more about it than me. Definitely worth doing though, just to see it and learn :)

For a day out its a really informative place. Sends the hairs up on your neck when you think about the way that we thought and tried to protect ourselves back in the 60/70/80's Well displayed and the "tour" was a useful way of seeing the complete thing. If there was one criticism it would be the entry and parking... More
