The tour started at 1.30pm and finished at 4.00pm but could have been completed in half the time. More could, and should, have been said in the lecture theatre rather than standing around on site. I could certainly have done without being told about the...More

Wanted to visit the Power Station as it does look impressive. The Exhibition was fairly small but very informative. I think it was more directed to children and would give them a good knowledge of Nuclear Power putting it into language they would understand. As...More

This was an excellent tour around the Dungeness power station. You have to book 3 weeks ahead due to security etc but it’s worth planning it in to your trip. The guide was really knowledgable and you are well looked after with all the kit...More

A very well organised tour and with only five visitors to a guide it is easy to understand the live commentary via ear pieces and to see everything. With a 1.5 mile walk taking just over 1.5 hours there is a lot to see.

What a great morning, you get a guided tour around the whole of the Dungeness B power station. Safety is of the utmost importance, which in a nuclear power station is very reassuring. Our guides were very knowledgeable and keen for us to ask many...More

This was a super tour: interesting, informative and not overly polished. It involved a 1.5 mile walk through the working power station, including seeing the reactor itself, the turbine hall, de-aerators, etc. We were all given a safety briefing, hard hat, protective glasses and a...More
