Overview
More
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.

If you're a fan of 'the Bomb' it's all here! This is the place deep below ground where UK military personnel would have carried out their duties during World War 3. No longer active since the 90s, turned into a museum. Various rooms are set...More

Buried deep into the countryside just outside Nantwich is this almost surreal place. It contains considerable equipment from the Cold War era authentically displayed in its original setting. Whist there are explanations and pictures the staff on duty had virtually no knowledge of the bunker...More

For those of us brought up in the 70s and 80s it's a sobering reminder of the very real threat of annihilation throughout that period of the Cold War. For those who are younger it's probably even more important to be aware of what could...More

I've been here a few times, and every time friends who haven't been before seem to get taken here for a good couple of hours. It's well laid out and a good value trip. Great military and Cold War history I'll be back again Thanks

This attraction is well worth a visit. The content is amazing and at the same time, frightening - a stark reminder of the insanity of nuclear conflict. All the exhibits are well presented and well explained. The site includes a nice little cafe. Staff are...More

Hello! Dogs are welcome everywhere inside and outside the bunker. There are Silver Spy Wednesdays, when over 60s get 10% off. The rest of the time there is no concession for pensioners.

We do still host lots of groups. The information is on our website under 'What's On' and then 'Ghost Hunts'. Unfortunately TripAdvisor won't allow a weblink.
