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.

I went with my girlfriend (both mid 20s) and thought that it was certainly worth it for £8 a ticket. You walk around the site yourself, exploring all 27 rooms which can take anything between 1-4 hours as they're are cinema rooms with documentaries. I'd advise to go no later than 2pm to ensure you get enough time to explore.... More

Came here at 1500 on a Monday and surprisingly quiet but I'm sure it gets busy with school groups at times. Met the cats who are a bit of a feature. Was expecting just a concrete shell but found rooms full of recent history. Take time to read boards which lead you on a self guided tour of each room... More

Hack Green is a unique part of British history which could haunt those who lived through the Cold War and surprise and horrify those who didn't. What impressed me was the balance between authenticity and the presentation. Yes it looks run down and stark in places but that surely is the whole point of presenting the place as it was... More

A really interesting place to visit! If you are interested in cold war history then this is the place for you. Quite a few interesting exhibits. Yonger children would probably be bored. The guide book is not great for £3.50. The cafe do a very nice coffee. But all in all a great rainy day activity.

We visited the Bunker as we had picked up a leaflet and it sounded a very different experience. It is a very interesting place but not somewhere we feel to to take young children although they had set up a spot the spy mouse for them along the way to keep them amused. No need to book as you can... More

This is a most interesting place which demonstrates the appalling likely effects of a nuclear strike on the UK. It also demonstrates the virtual impossibility of governing the country/region in such circumstances. It is a relic of the Cold War and will not interest many people. However, if you have an interest in Cold War, or military history, you will... More

We have driven past the signs for the secret bunker for years. Well we have finally visited and are glad we did. You need to be able to walk down the stairs as there is no lift and it probably isn't for those who suffer with claustrophobia. The displays are interesting and informative with a well labelled tour around. I... More

OH visited this but I didn't want to go in as it looked a little eerie. He said that it was informative and interesting although he found it a little Disturbing. Appears to be a small Place but has several floors below ground.

Shows the work that was going on in the background to protect us in the case of a nuclear attack. Quite a few stairs to go and down, however they can help less able visitors, you may miss some of the displays. I was so fascinated I went round twice and spent 2 hours, its a take yourself round, there... More
