  • A fascinating insight into the Cold War and how the government attempted to plan for a nuclear war. On the one hand a fabulously optimistic effort and on the other absolutely hopeless. Definitely...

  • SWMBO insisted we made a visit here, no arguments from me. Arrived 10 am Sunday and spent two and a bit hours following the audio guided tour over the three levels. I hate those audio sticks but...

  • Interesting and eye opening! Well worth a visit. Suitable for kids, if they like their history. Wheelchair accessible and lots of parking. Pay on exit. Cards accepted at the self-service till.
  • The bunker is disguised as a cabin from the outside. Facilities were surprisingly clean and well maintained. Lots of interesting material and facts. Only downside was it's in the middle of nowhere, quick and easy to ride an uber going in but coming back to town was quite the hurdle as there are no cabs or ubers around the vicinity. But overall it was a lovely and interesting surprise. The environment felt safe.
