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.

Was very interesting to learn that the Observer Corps was still running up until the early 1980's. Some interesting displays but many could do with better explanations - the Soviet display had practically no explanation of the exhibits. The best, and most disturbing, item was the BBC documentary that was never broadcast. I suggest that you sit right through the... More

Great memorabilia, really thought provoking and interesting, and loved the hidden mice :) but didn't get a feel for what it would have been like in operation, York is much better for that

In deepest Cheshire along narrow lanes is a concrete block. At first the displays seem old fashioned but when you get into the swing it doesn't matter much. For me the cell with simulated attack sounds, although seeming simple, got my imagination working as to what could have been. The Russian artifacts add to the spectre. After that the remaining...

I have visited the nuclear bunker years ago, and the place hasn't changed at all, same layout, same mice hiding and same display cabinets. Quite interesting and lots of old equipment on display. But let down by lack of information, perhaps a tour guide or more info boards around would make the place better. Rooms are dark and auto lights... More

Took my two grandsons aged 7&9 it was very interesting but I did feel it was quite expensive (£26) for family ticket. It was fascinating seeing the equipment which seemed so "old fashioned" . Great staff and cafe.

Once you find this Bunker the overall experience is interesting and quite informative. The staff are polite but not extremely friendly, entrance fee is reasonable, but catering disappointing, little choice and a lot on the menu not available, but the available sandwiches were very good. Not a guided tour just walk round at your own pace, would have been nice... More

Very interesting but also very expensive for a family of 4. Really should be free admission. Was easy enough to find
