Owner description: Discover the secret world of nuclear government. For over 50 years this vast underground complex, remained secret, hidden on the outskirts of a sleepy Cheshire town. Declassified in 1993, the 35,000 sq ft underground bunker would have been the centre of Regional Government had nuclear war broken out. The bunker today offers a warm welcome to anyone looking for a totally different day out.

“If i told you i would have to kill you!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Driving around saw the huge brown and white signs for the 'secret Bunker (oh the irony).
It was raining so we thought why not, first impressions, a bit pricey at £8 entry fee which you don't find out until you are standing at the turnstile after going through two sets of doors.
However we enjoyed it very much, the experience would how ever been greatly enhanced by a guided tour after a while one huge bank of equipment with lights flashing looks very much like another without some human interest angle.
Lots of things to look at, not much to interact with. Not for small children.

“Disappointing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

I was disappointed by the lack of information on the displays. Lots and lots of cabinates with dials, switches, buttons and lights, the modern technology of the day. However very little to bring in to life. Guided tours are a must in my opinion. The place is fascinating and the history of it is lost in a self guided tour.
Admission price is perfectly acceptable and the quantity of exhibits breathtaking.

“Thought provoking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

To take full advantage of this attraction try to read the information on the website beforehand. It's maybe not for the very young but well worth a visit. It is a bunker so expect damp and cold. Wrap up warm and enjoy. Follow the directions, read all the info and have a hot drink at the end. It is enlightening and a very thought provoking look into the recent past.

“Needs improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Went to the bunker in August 2013, really looked forward to it, i got out of there quick. kerb appeal didn't look good, could do with sending somebody out with a brush. Allot of old rubbish lying about and just generally a mess. Disabled access was at the bottom of the ramp with a sign telling people to go to the main entrance if access was needed. If you were in a wheelchair alone lord knows what would happen, could do with an intercom or doorbell. went in and the admission was pretty reasonable. going around was ok, not allot of information about the place and what was in the adjoining fields if there was anything. Not allot of flow to the place and it was all mumble jumble. Toilets were totally inadequate, not even a cubicle are out toilet, really need to get that sorted, pretty sure it could be illegal. The cafe was not really to standard, very old! The shop looked like it could do with some new stock, as it looks like its been there since the cold war! All in all the visit was not really worth the money, i know that the upkeep costs will be high but they could really do with applying for some grants to bring the place up to a modern day standard and freshen the place up! Then i guess it would be a nice day out, would be good to go back in a couple of years and see if anything has changed!

“Eye Opener”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Worth a visit. Cold though, and a little damp. But, what do you expect for a bunker. Have to think back to the cold war, and the "state of fear".
