This evening I went on a children's explorer tour. I do not think it is a tour that is on every week but if you get the chance to go on the tour I recommend you do. It was amazing to step back in time to our very recent history. The guide we had was Roger - he made the... More

Going in to the shelters you can feel the history and feeling of what it would have been like during the war. While it does not take long to go around at a guess about 30 minutes to an hour you can easily pick up and process the information on the boards and the audio device given, which is very... More

the tours are only available during school holidays but it's worth waiting for one. I took my 2 grandsons 7 & 10 years of age. Tour lasted 2 hours in the evening & takes you into areas not open to the general public. Although all the tunnels look the same the information provided by the tour guide helps you to... More

Visited here before undertaking the Robinsons Brewery tour. It does what it says on the tin. Interesting. The recorded information system was a must and helped one understand the history of the schelters

We took my Dad to see this, he was in his teens when the war was on and a lot of the stories we listened to on the way round made him smile because he remembered so much of what people were saying. Dad is in a wheelchair and because of the sandy floor it was difficult to turn the... More

What an interesting and unique place to spend a couple of hours. Friends from the south of England were very impressed with this hidden gem in the North. The audio tour lets you find out as little or as much as you want to know about each area of the shelter and you can move through at the pace you... More

Born in 1953 luckily I was not around when this shelter was last in use. May not be the best place for you if you suffer from clostrophobia. Great family day out. Its all explaned to you as you go round. Good place to go if you are in Stockport with kids & its raining for a hour or so.... More

We spent an hour and a half walking down tunnels cut out of the sandstone to shelter people during the blitz. Many of the bunkbeds and the original toilets are still there. The audio tour was excellent. It was packed with factual information and real life accounts of the experiences of people who lived through the war.

Finally I have done this tour, not a long tour but informative, being a genuine Air Raid shelter it doesn't take much imagination to get a feeling of what they must gone have through, audio equipment to inform you about each section and souvenir shop at the entry, good visit and cheap entrance fee. Good educational tool for the young.
