This is very expensive, £24 for two adults with one audio guidance. The bunker was not at all what I expected either in size or form. It was interesting to view the cold war from a different perspective and recall incidents which had been reported on the news or intentionally kept secret at the time. Some of the equipment on...

It is an interesting place to visit, especially the walk down to the doors and all the individual rooms but its needing that little bit extra. Maybe some interactive areas and the area at the end definitely needs more hands on exhibits, what a disappointment!! I also thought the admission price was a bit expensive and the gift shop was...

We visited today and I agree I found it a bit pricey, £36 including a guide book for 2 adults and 3 kids (that's with the youngest being free). The audio guide would've been good but with 3 young kids it's almost impossible to concentrate on an audio guide. Kids loved the dress up and playing with contraptions at the... More

Unfortunately I was really looking forward to visit this place. I ended up paying £13 for entry and audio guidance to see a very small place with a lot of fake equipment. The best part there was the educational movie.

While our 16 year old was the keen one to go while we spent a fabulous week at Kilconquhar Castle Estate, the experience was...weird. As a 44 year old I remember living with the Cold War as 'background noise' to my young years, but when underground and returned to a time I had forgotten, I found I couldn't give sensible... More

Fascinating experience, learnt a lot about the Cold War and the threat of nuclear attack. Saw the film in Cinema 1, harrowing and not suitable for under 10's. In fact in general this visit was suited more to older children/teens and adults.

If you have an interest in modern history or the Cold War in particular then this is a worthwhile and very thought provoking place to visit. It really makes you realise how serious that was at the time. The plans that were in place to deal with the population should the worst have happened are quite scary. We took the... More

Being of the age group to remember the Cold War we found this place fascinating. To think people not only lived and worked here but there was a very real possibility that it could have been used . It is a bit expensive and if a family were visiting may not be affordable but even to see the military equipment... More

We took friends from England who hadn't been there before but wanted to see it. They were enthralled and we stayed half as long again as we did on our first visit. I find people's comments about it being uninteresting, poor value, difficult to walk for pregnant ladies, not wheelchair friendly etc quiite pathetic. The staff at reception were very... More

Dropped in past en route to St. Andrews and really wish we hadn't. £24 for two adults is a joke. We were done in 45 minutes and felt really let down. The place is quite spooky and unusual but really should be around the £5-8 mark.
