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

Something I was aware of but never experienced it. An eye opener to see the place "in the flesh" so to speak. Glad I went. It does involve climbing quite a few stairs. It is fully undercover therefore an all weather event. A sat-nav is essential to find the place.

As a child of the 70s and 80s it was chilling to be reminded of the pressing fear of nuclear war that pervaded that era. Whilst many of the exhibits were very technical, the huge number of different items, helpful narrative and over-all atmosphere of the place were very powerful. The designers have even managed to introduce a little humour... More

On a weekend break locally to the bunker and were glad to find such a fascinating 'museum'. Perhaps a tad pricey for its size but very informative and we found the videos very historically interesting. Shop/canteen could use a little tlc.

This is a very interesting venue. An amazing collection from times gone by. The NAAFI was very good and added to the visit. I believe though that the price is just a little expensive compared to other tourist attractions.

We were looking for some interesting attractions in the area and got the details from the Tourist office. There are all manors of equipment on display, all very nicely layout. A nice place to visit for any Cold War fans.

We attended on Tuesday 26 August. Arrived as it was opening and stayed a couple of hours. Very interesting and scary, it wasn't too busy when we went so we could have a good look around without crowds. Alot of work and effort has gone into the displays and there is plenty to see and learn. We ended the visit... More

Hack Green was found on-line by my partner and we decided to go here for something different. I didn't think much about it before going but glad we did. When we arrived I expected a massive deep hole a mile underground but its wasn't exactly that. We attended on a Saturday morning and its was quiet which allowed us the... More

Well, the first thing is....no wonder they call it secret bunker. It can be found down a long narrow lane (French Lane). On arrival it looks like an old post war building, inside the staff were very helpful. There were a number of floors and exhibits to visit, lots of smaller rooms, Hospital, decontamination areas, communications etc. Very interesting. Not... More

Pleasent staff, well laid out and some nice exhibits (my lad loved the nuclear bomb!). Bit pricey for what it is though, not really very good value for money. You can rattle round it in an hour (less if you skip the movies!) But, let's remember though it is a private run establishment not goverment subsidised so fair play to... More

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.
