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.

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

Having lived the best part of my life only 7 miles away, Hack Green had never really featured on my radar (pun intended). However I have now visited 4 times. It is a fascinating insight into what could have been and poses the what if question in your mind as you wander through what would have been a nerve centre... More
