“Great for Schools”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I took two separate year four classes to the Air Raid shelters where we were greeted by actors in costume. the children thoroughly enjoyed their visit that, for some, was a little too real. I was asked if they could see their parents before they were evacuated !

“A fascinating insight”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

An excellant view into the home front of WW2, with good and informative displays and placards. A few more photographs or demonstrations of the conditions might liven it up a little, but overall very good.

“Well worth a visit”

Never knew this was here for a long time, have been twice now, very interesting experience learning what it must have been like for people during the war, get a ticket which gets you into here, bramhall hall and staircase house - good value!

“Everyone should give this a try!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

I have been here three times now and each time I have had a different tour guide. Each of them have been exceptional!

The reason I have been here three times is, I know it is an interesting place to take friends and family that are visiting the area. Thankfully I have never been let down and they have all enjoyed their visit.

It is such a shame if fellow Stopfordians have not visited this great tourist attraction.

The whole visit will give you a sense of what it was like during the war and indeed Stockport and the surrounding areas and what it must have been like whilst 'living in these shelters'. There are some interesting facts to learn and fun things to see. I know that sounds like it would be good for children and I am sure it is, though I have never visited with any children just adults and we all have a great time!

Highly recommended!
