The tunnels themselves are well preserved with lots of authentic artefacts and props from the era, so provide a feel for how things must have been for those taking shelter. With up... More

We went in January with our 5 and 8 year olds. I never knew that this was here despite growing up in the area myself. We are home schooling so wanted a fun interactive way to talk about the history of the Second World War with our children. In short, it's a must go for every child. To be able... More

This was a self guided tour with audio device. It was informative and gave a good sense of reality of the war years. The staff were helpful and friendly and gave us all the information we asked / needed. It was a clearly organised attraction that keeps the past alive.

They don't take card payment which seems madness for a popular attraction but would have liked to see the air raid shelters.

I have lived in Stockport all my life (which is quite a long time) and never knew about the miles of tunnels I was walking over! Fascinating, atmospheric, evening tour with a great tour guide.

Worth seeing how people we talk on during air raids. Some had to stay there for very long periods the people who show you around make it very real. Some places are quite frightening.

It is very interesting and easy to imagine being in these air raid shelters with several thousand other people during WWII. It comprises tunnels dug out of the sandstone rock under Stockport. The tunnels are head height so no bending or crawling is required. Expertly restored but can be draughty (as that was how it would be)
