Excellent, interesting and informative visit. The visit took about 30 mins to an hour and is definitely worth a visit. We took friends who also enjoyed it.

As part of a Year 4 history topic on WWII, we took our class to here to experience a bit of life in the War. They loved being given wartime names and braved the dark tunnel. They loved the afternoon experience and getting hands on with the gas masks & household items, I've never seen a class of such enthusiastic... More

I hadn't been to Stockport air raid shelters since I visited with my primary school about 12 years ago, and it was just as good if not better today! The two gentlemen we spoke to were absolutely lovely and very knowledge. The fact you can walk around at your own leisure was perfect too! Very insightful audio tours and images... More

We visited here with our 8 yr old son. We all found it very interesting. You get to read about life in the shelters and also to hear accounts via an electronic device. You are free to wander around to examine the exhibits at your own pace. Worth a visit.

I visited the attraction today with two children, aged 8 and 9. The guide's introductory talk was most helpful, and child-friendly, with a good explanation on audio use. Once inside the Shelter, we found it user-friendly, with regular audio input points. The children commented on how atmospheric it was, and particularly enjoyed the Sick Bay and Ladies and Gents loos!!... More

I visited the Air Raid Shelters and found it quite an interesting place to visit. They have all sorts of facilities used throughout the war there on view and you can listen to events from the war via a walkie talkie type advice you get before you enter. Listening and reading about the facts of the war not to mention... More

Having lived in Stockport all my life I had no idea about the air raid shelters and their use during WW2. It was a fascinating guided tour which I would thoroughly recommend
