  • Absolutely amazing place to visit and see how history unfolded. Really great modern visitors centre suitable for all ages, but word of warning... The bunker itself has something like 77 steps, so not really suitable for wheelchair users or anyone with breathing or stamina issues. But the tour does have time to sit and recover!
  • A good follow on from a visit to the Bentley Priory Museum. Be aware of the 76 steps down into the bunker! Good to learn about what was done in WW2. It deserves to be supported.
