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.

Visited with my 10 year old and wasnt sure if he would be bored. no worries there though- he loved the spy rat hunt. was really interesting to see the underground world and a little scary at all that went on. Good day out. only downside was lack of good cafe facilities

No family ticket option, so paid for 2 adults/2 kids. Approx £33; gift aid it and you can return as many times as you like during the 12 months. Quaint little cafe and gift "shop" on arrival and then a very clearly signed self-tour of almost 30 rooms packed full of memorabilia, photos, items, props, lights and sounds all about... More

This really is a modern historical place to visit. The bunker was built to survive a nuclear strike and jeep some form of local government in operation. The bunker is now a museum and has lots of period exhibits and also films and newsreel footage to illustrate what might have been. Its quite scary really to see the preparations that... More

I would say our visit was 'interesting' rather than 'enjoyable' because of the nature of the subject matter: not a jolly place to be, and definitely a salutary reminder of what might have been. The many rooms you visit on the self-guided tour are full of equipment, memorabilia and information - although more explanations would have been helpful as sometimes... More

In order to serve its original purpose, this place had to be in the middle of nowhere - it still is. I suppose that if you're a WWII nut or a radio enthusiast, then its fabulous but if you're an ordinary family looking for somewhere to entertain the kids...don't bother. There's room after room of machines with blinking lights and... More

Rather nostalgic visit given memories of the 70s and the Cold War. 27 rooms of displays of the equipment used to monitor post atomic attack, scared but a real insight for today's youngsters. Worth a visit , allow between 90mins and 2 hours.

Visited with 2 girls aged 8 and 10. They enjoyed hunting the spy mice and spotting 2 of the cats. Was a little scary at times with sounds and low lighting. Very interesting!

We stopped of here on a canal holiday. It's a 10 minute walk from the canal and not hard to find. It's a great place to visit. It's jam packed with interesting objects, information, films and photographs. It tells the story of a history mainly hidden from civilians and one we should all know about. We had tea and a... More

Went with our young grandchildren aged 6 & 11. If it was not for the hunt the number of mice in the display rooms the 6year old would have been bored for the duration. The 11 year old was a little more occupied and interested. An interesting insight into the Cold War period and the countries defence mechanism against possible... More
