Owner description: 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.

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

It is hard to believe that this place stayed secret for so long. It has been left just as it was in the 60s and it quite scary but very informative. It has everything hospital, shelters, radio and tv stations quite a reminder of the cold war. There is even a canteen just as it would have been.

Found this on the Discover Cheshire website and it looked like it was worth the visit even though it was an hour away. The website was down, but thought it was worth the risk of heading over. It wasn't. It was shut. According to the sign at the front it is shut for "two weeks over Christmas". Would have been... More

We had been to hack green about 6 years ago and decided it was time to revisit it. The exhibitions were the same and the spot the rat challenge was still there. Sometimes it's nice to see they haven't changed the place. Its very educational and interesting. Overall an enjoyable day out.

I've lived a few miles away for many years but it took the visit of a friend who researched 'things to do in Nantwich' to make me visit. It was certainly worth the visit. The many rooms, displays and equipment, together with the 'War Games' video remind us of what might have been.

This place scares me when I visit. I've visited about 3 times in the past. It always give me the creeps especially in the air raid shelter experience. I think it's just too real and raw in there. It is very interesting and if you're a history buff or not a scaredy cat like me (my friend loves this place... More
