All reviews english heritage nuclear attack recent history guided tour royal observer corps short film housing estate modern history guide jake operations room well worth a visit chilling reminder eye opening fascinating insight hidden away excellent guide city centre
Visited here while in York. Was a really fascinating and interesting visit. Highly recommend for anyone who has an interest in history. Would advise not to turn up to early before the tour as you have to wait outside, especially when the weather is rubbish.
My husband and I visited here this morning as it was our last day in York. We got there nice and early and joined a small group on the tour
The tour guide was very informative and explained the purpose and history of the bunker...More
Have been a couple of times and always go with friends/family staying with us as it's different to the normal milk round of the Minister, Clifford's Tower and the Viking Centre, although of course nowt wrong with any of them.
Always go for the early...More
Not what we expected because it was a guided tour. Our guide Jake gave us lots of information and what would have happened if an attack had come.
It was really interesting but also eye opening.
Well done English Heritage and thank you Jake.
Enjoyed a guided tour of the bunker as part of York residents weekend. An interesting film introduction followed by a very informative tour. Amazing to discover what was and was not put in place in anticipation of a nuclear attack. Much cause for reflection on...More
Not what we initially expected, we thought this was for living it and 'surviving' a nuclear attack not just monitoring one, it was very interesting. We managed to get on the first tour of the day (which meant we managed to get a parking spot...More
This is a central control room which would be gathering "live" information about potential nuclear attacks on this country. Using the communication technology of the day (dial-up telephones) the information was relayed every five minutes! No instant data transfer in those days.
Its a great...More
This is a really interesting way to spend an hour or so, you need to check tour times as you are only let in at these times. We went on a Sunday and tours were hourly. All the fixtures and fittings are original and some...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
