What a great place. Who would believe that Stockport had it's own Shelters. Great to see, you could actually imagine being there in the war. Lots of tunnels with benches, beds, kitchen, first aid room, toilets etc. You can feel the atmosphere when you walk in there of the camaraderie.

Although only a portion of the shelters can be visited by the general public, they are well worth a visit. These are not the largest shelters in Britain, as claimed - that accolade belongs to Ramsgate - but the tunnels are impressively large, and well presented, without having been over-tidied. But be prepared for the rude woman on the ticket... More

We were the first people in on a Sunday morning, and had the whole place to ourselves. We found this tour so interesting, and spent quite a while wandering through the tunnels. Would definitely recommend!

We (my wife and me) had found this attraction on the internet. We had a rental car. It was easy to get to and to park as it is next to a big shopping centre.The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The initial video presentation is interesting but not of great quality. The actual shelter is a labyrinth of corridors,... More

this is a tour through the old air raid shelters from the 2nd world war, through out the tour you are guided around with a small handset that you listen to snippets of experiences from the past, all in all a very interesting couple of hours

Took my son as they had been learning about the war at school, it was completely empty, which was nice! It was awful to imagine what it must have been like down there with thousands of others while the bombs were dropping. Listening to the audio got a bit boring, so we gave up and I expected more stuff from... More

We had relatives over from Canada and wanted to see local attractions, the Sheters were one place we went with them, (we had never thought of going). We were so surprised we experienced a bygone age which we take for granted. We highly recommend a visit. Our relatives loved it as well as ourselves.

SARS is a fab little trip out for the family. Really interesting but the radio footage at the start can be a little scary for tiny people but nothing a hand squeeze won't cure. It's fascinating to read all the information and to imagine how it must have been. It doesn't take that long to go round it but you... More

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
