“An education”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Very interesting 'attraction', informative. Fascinating to go along all the tunnels etc and imagine what sort of conditions people had to deal with during their use. Take a jumper .... it's cold down there!

“Excellent excursion, good value for money and does not occupy the whole day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

It's history in a vision so I imagine we are all interested in how are family once lived and not soo long ago either. How times have moved on in only a short space of time.

“Keeping people alive during World War Two”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We have been round the underground air raid shelters in Stockport and seen at first hand, the conditions at the time - our guide explained everything that happened in the shelters; it was a real eye opener and to think people had to do this from 1939 - 1945, never knowing if they were going to live or die.

If it wasn't for the air raid shelters - we might not have had the options.

Defintely a must see attraction - to understand what people went through, to try and stay alive.

“Worth going.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Can't believe it's almost on our doorstep! We did the guided tour which is advertised as 1.5 hours long on the site but it turned out to be 2 hours, that's probably the only criticism I have as it was clear that the guides were used to catering for school trips rather than adults and the guided tour, for adults, could have been done in half the time; the last thing you want to do after work is sit and have someone talk at you for 20+ mins! Otherwise, I really enjoyed seeing the tunnels, they go on for miles, hearing stories of how life used to be then and seeing the original bunk beds, toilets, benches... Really enjoyed it.
