Very interesting and makes you realise how strong and supportive people were to live through such an experience of bombs dropping around them. Seeing the mother and baby section made me sad but if you are interested in UK history visit here and go to the hat factory which is a free museum nearby this musem will cost less than... More

This visit facilitated a level of understanding of the reality of what people went through. The experience was quite interesting, but it was cold and dank and smelly and damp. The unpleasant nature of it increased the point of the visit, but also made me keep the visit short. It wasn't a complete day out, we'd also visited the hat... More

It's quite a good place to visit gives you a good insight as to what they had to put up with, I'm sure the kids of today would find it a very interesting place

I found the visit fascinating with many of the areas still set up as they would have been when these shelters were used. To add to the these tours, once a month they to a night tour by torch light.

It was a great museum to visit. Value for money and just when you thought it had finished more tunnels to go down

having been past this place many times and wondered what it was i finally decided to pay the fee and go in. Its a bit interesting but basically a big dark human made cave system.

This is one of the best "small" museums I have visited - though in fact it is quite large, a veritable warren of tunnels. Obviously you get an excellent insight into the unique environment of an air raid shelter. Then, too, the audio guide successfully brings alive life inside the tunnels, not least the humour and steadfastness that kept people... More

First of all, for a family of 2 adults and 3 children, we only paid £9.50 which was great. When you pay and enter the air raid shelters, you are taken into a small, dark room where there are images projected onto the walls and you listen to some audio which is supposed to make you feel like you are...
