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.

Something for everyone

Perfect way to spend a couple of hours for anyone. We visited with young kids as they both loved it. The eldest (5 1/2) did the Spy Mouse hunt and loved it.

Really good, well looked after and really brings home how scary it would have been in the event of a nuclear war. Worse how most people would have been left to get on with it and eventually die. These places were reserved for politicians and local authorities.

Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker is quite an amazing place. The history behind the bunker is fascinating, which makes it even more exciting for paranormal investigations. The exhibits, which are all authentic, and the various rooms which house them, show what life was like in the bunker before it was decommissioned. For ghost hunting groups it is highly recommended, as... More

We decided to visit the Nuclear Bunker for an afternoon family activity. After paying £30 for the 5 of us we expected better than we got. Quite uninformative, dull, and felt like it had never been cleaned. We were thoroughly unimpressed I am afraid.

We visited Hack Green a couple of days ago, and although we enjoyed it and leaning about the preparations the UK made in case it was attacked, we left feeling it could be better. First there are a lot of exhibits, 27 different rooms covering every aspect of the UK's preparation war during the Cold War. The exhibits range from... More

I lived through a good part of the Cold War..... And didn't realise half of what was going on! The naievity of it all is brought to life in Cold War films of how we were to react in the event of a nuclear attack The UK would have been destroyed, with only political leaders left to start a new...

The bunker was easy to find using the Satnav settings on the website and leaflet. The price was little on the high side and I was very surprised that they didn't offer a discount to HM Forces Veterans. The café on the way in was a bit pricey and sold all sorts of collectables. I got a snow globe that... More

Hack Green is a very interesting place for a visit. It’s a bit hard to find but I suppose that is inevitable given that it was a secret bunker. It gives a valuable insight into what happened between 1945 and 1991 – the Cold War era. Sometimes it is very hard to explain to the younger generation what it was... More

This is well worth visiting. So different and interesting and very strange to be stood so close to a nuclear weapon. Thoroughly enjoyed our whole visit, which took over 3 hours. Not too many brown signs pointing the way, but we used a Sat Nav and Google Earth to find it. Lovely cafe with very amusing signs, and the coffee... More

We have passed by the signs on our many trips along the Shroppi Canal and this time we made time to visit the Secret Bunker. Well we weren't disappointed. Being of an age when we remember The Cold War, it was most interesting seeing just how much the government and the Forces at that time did to to avoid armagedon.... More
