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.

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

The Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker is a great place to visit. On entering, there is a café with gift counter where you can buy souvenirs. Then you can follow the clearly signposted tour through at least 27 rooms (could have been more} with exhibitions, videos, and explanations of their use. I found it quite scary to think that only...

We had the place almost to ourselves which made it even better. Children may get a bit bored but the rooms and the equipment etc are really interesting. The 45 minute video is a must - a 1960s documentary The War Game. it is played on a loop. we thought it was well worth the money. We're just sorry we... More

We had very high hopes when arriving at the blast doors of hackgreen but once we got too the entrance it all went down hill. First impression was a sullen faced woman who pointed us in the direction of the tour but failed to advise it was self guided! When we asked we were scoffed at then told to follow... More

The website advertises it as a day out for all the family! We have a large family and it would have been very expensive for us all to visit so we decided to check it out first as a couple especially when I found a coupon to reduce the price. We got in for less than half price and for... More

There are a huge number of exhibits but the place is structured in such a way that it assumes that visitors already know a lot about the cold war. It would have been better if there was something to introduce visitors to the place - why it was there, what the main purpose of the place was, when it was... More

We visited this place for the first time in January with a visiting friend. The bunker is fascination, and the self guided tour is well marked and clearly explained on notices. I would highly recommend the bunker itself without reservation. The things that let it down in my view are small and and could be fixed easily. The things that... More

I travelled from Dorset yesterday 24th January to take part in a ghost hunting investigation of the bunker. I can't stress enough how pleased I am that I was afforded this opportunity. Not only was the event fantastic but the bunker itself left me lost for words. The sheer range of memorabilia, all of which was acquired by the staff... More

We love bunkers and recently visited Kelvedon Hatch nuclear bunker. We found this to be smaller but better laid out with more exhibits and information. However it does concentrate more on the technical aspect of the equipment and bunker rather than the human effect of a nuclear war, unlike Kelvedon Hatch. Entrance cost was realistic and the staff seemed friendly... More
