All reviews english heritage nuclear attack recent history guided tour royal observer corps short film housing estate modern history operations room guide jake well worth a visit chilling reminder tours run eye opening fascinating insight hidden away excellent guide
Interesting bunker which has rightly been restored and taken over by English heritage, tour guide jake was decent and knew his stuff, I would have loved it had I not recently been to a secret bunker in Scotland and it was about 10 times the...More
I heard all about this place on radio 4 and decided to visit with the family. The whole tour takes 1 hour and starts with a short film about the cold war , the tour guide we had was the guy from the radio 4...More
The experience lasts about an hour and is interesting. There is a 10 minute video with footage of Hiroshima and an 80s documentary (QED I think). Then there was about a 40 minute talk and tour of the bunker. It is quite surprising that so...More
This has s very good guided tour of the Royal Observer Corps Bunker which requires, and gets, a good guided narrative. The equipment is restored and original and is explained well. A bit on the chilly side now that autumn is here so wear a...More
We had a great hour here, interesting and unusual. The video at the start is a little full on, we had a 7 year old who was fine with it, but I was worried that the content was too much? Overall a good guide and...More
This place operates timed slots so you need to get there about 10 minutes before the hour. Free to English Heritage members. The tour takes an hour and we had Jake as our guide who is awesome. Very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and can answer all questions...More
Stumbled across this place, well worth the half hour wait for the tour. (Be aware that there is nowhere on-site to wait, unless you count the pub next door!) Excellent value for English Heritage Members.
Well informed and informative guides (Kate and Jake) who managed...More
Has anyone done any of these? They sound really interesting on their website and I am a bit stuck choosing which one to do! Any advice would be appreciated. The flak tower one looks great, but so does both the Nazi and Cold War bunker tours!

my daughter did the Cold War Bunkers tour a couple of weeks ago and raved about it.... so much so that we're hoping to do it when we are there in January.
History of Berlin Museum near KuDam (2 Replies)
I hope someone can help me. I visited a terrific little museum while visiting several years ago near the KuDam on a main road. I believe it was called the History of Berlin. It was in a former shopping mall. Afterwards included in our entry fee they took us below into underground garage level and we visited a Cold War bunker maintained in original condition. Does anyone know if this museum is still operating? Any info on it? Thanks

Great help! Thank you so much. Diss sounds perfect and it is helpful that you all agree. And thank you for the links for car rental and bike rental. The broads sound interesting. I am a little confused how there can be so many if I am understanding corre tly that they are only 100 square miles - only 10 miles by 10 miles?? Encompassing several towns from Norfolk a well as a town in Suffolk? Tiny towns, or at an intersection. We had initially heard that we should make all train...More
