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. Built in the 1950's as part of a vast secret radar network codenamed 'ROTOR'. The bunker today offers a warm welcome to anyone looking for a totally different day out.

Entering through massive blast doors, you will be transported into the chilling world of the Cold War. Re-built in the 1980's at a cost of over £32 million, it was transformed into the blastproof headquarters you can explore today. For the first time, you can see the governments preparations for nuclear war and step into the lives of those who worked here. Minister of state's office, life support, communication centre, decontamination facilities, telephone exchange and much more! View original broadcasts to be transmitted on all TV channels prior to a nuclear attack.

Tons of authentic equipment in original settings fire the imagination, with an exciting glimpse into England's dramatic Cold War past. Learn what living conditions were like, really getting to grips with the reality of the nuclear threat. Hear the sounds, even the smells of a working Civil Defence H.Q. at the height of the Cold War. Exciting real life operation rooms and many audio-visual presentations. A superb cinema showing a previously secret film. Explore the labyrinth of spooky corridors. All the family will enjoy the Hands-On activities. An all-weather Attraction, the bunker is a huge adventure playground in itself. Younger children can have bundles of fun as secret agents, following the Soviet Spy mouse Trail. Before ending your eye-opening tour, visit the Bunker Bistro for your survival rations. And don't miss our shop, take home a souvenir of your visit to the secret world of nuclear government.
