Attraction in Nantwich
For over 50 years this vast underground complex, remained secret, hidden on the outskirts of a sleepy Cheshire town. De-classified in 1993, the 35000 sq ft underground bunker would have been the centre of regional government had nuclear war broken out.
Entering through the 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 & transformed into the blast-proof headquarters you can explore today. Hear the sounds- even the smells of a working civil defence H.Q. at the height of the "Cold War". Exciting "Real Life" operational rooms. Many audio-visual presentations. 2 superb cinemas showing previously secret films. 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".sat nav postcode: CW5 8BL
