Visited on a complete wim after walking past but had a really good experience after not quite knowing what to expect. Only a portion of the shelters can be visited by the public however there is more than enough exibits on show showcasing a fascinating look into how the people of Stockport coped during the WWII with an interactive tour...

I went to see the air raid shelter tour which was very interesting you can just imagine how bad things were live down there people cramped in there on benches for hours or even day with very basic stuff to live on. You get an audio pack to carry around your neck so you can go at your own pace... More

I went with my family as as touristic visit and it definitely was worth it. It is not very expensive (4.75 pounds each) and you can get discounts if your are local or a student (3.50 pounds I think). You watch a short film in a small room, just next to the ticket office. The video is ok, but the... More

went here with my youngest daughter, mum & aunt ( who were both children in WW2). My little girl loved it that much she insisted on going around twice. Both mum & aunt said that it was very realistic ( sights, sounds & smells) of what went on in the shelters ( but not quiet as much singing). Definitely good... More

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
