Overview

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. The bunker today offers a warm welcome to anyone looking for a totally different day out.

Can't believe the Government of the day actually thought these bunkers would serve any real purpose in a nuclear war, same as their Protect & Survive videos that told people to hide under the kitchen table. Hack Green is worth a visit to see for...More

Hello! Dogs are welcome everywhere inside and outside the bunker. There are Silver Spy Wednesdays, when over 60s get 10% off. The rest of the time there is no concession for pensioners.

We do still host lots of groups. The information is on our website under 'What's On' and then 'Ghost Hunts'. Unfortunately TripAdvisor won't allow a weblink.
