  • What a lovely surprise and so little advertised. We were blown away from our visit. We didn’t know too much about this venue but learned so much while we were there. You enter the Secret Bunker...

  • Having heard of this, finally managed to visit. Adequate car parking and a pathway to the guard house which looks like a small bungalow. Basic toilet facilities outside and a basic entrance. Highly...

  • Wonderful experience. Well preserved and so interesting. Staff we all lovely. Kids loved the experience and their imaginations ran wild. Will visit again with more family members. From what I saw they do accommodate disabled people but not sure if that's full access in bunker.
  • Brilliant piece of contemporary history. Lots to learn and see. It’s family friendly and you probably need an hour to two to really look around. There is a shop and cafe at the end. The only let down is the sound quality of the rather apt 1980s phones - which are actually rather nifty talking guides.
