This is a really great educational day out. It amazes me how they built this without getting found out when you look at how much concrete was used. We took the hand held... read more

Really interesting for adults and children especially if you are a military anorak. A good day out and good for rainy days too

This is a really great educational day out. It amazes me how they built this without getting found out when you look at how much concrete was used. We took the hand held machines to guide us round and tell us about the place but gave up after a while as they had radio messages going on in the rooms.... More

Don't come expecting interactive displays and all the bells and whistles that modern museums have. What you'll get is the opportunity to see close up what life would have been like for the 'lucky' few whose had to leave their families (who would probably die from the effects of a nuclear bomb blast) to form a skeleton government to try...

Tammy and I had spotted this before and decided to visit. Finding it was fairly easy. We decided to get something to eat before we started so wentbto the canteen. Great location. The menu was wide, varied but not available as the kitchen was closed. We were told this by two people working in the kitchen. The coffee machine wasn't... More

We went with friends who live in the area and had never been to this place. It is really strange you go into a rather built up forest area then see a cottage. You go in and immediately it is like a bunker. The visit is quite lengthy you travel round the different levels (lots of stairs) and see what... More

ok.....so I was not interested in this place at all it sounded boring and dull with no real history as nothing happened!? I was wrong! Definitely worthwhile trip, was somewhat eery and very unique. Loved listening to the audio tape and wondering through all the places that could have been. Imagination was going wild in this place.....definitely think it is... More

The nuclear bunker tour was EXCELLENT ! It was a chilling reminder of the Cold War and how exposed we were during that time

The secret nuclear bunker at Kelvedon Hatch, just outside Brentwood, Essex is without doubt an excellent tourist attract that I would recommend for all ages, all parties irregardless of age of gender. That said lets talk realities, the secret bunker is a post clod war nuclear fallout bunker that is supposedly the bunker that would have housed the government and... More

My friend organized a trip to here on Meet up. I was really excited to see this unique - hidden building, which had a strategic role in Cold war. The rooms are just as they were left after the time changed. Old, nostalgic computers can be seen. We could even open the drawers to look for something 'secret'. Everything is... More
