Interesting bit of local history we'll worth the admission and they also do a tour of the off limits tunnels when booked at the front desk the guides where great
So cheap!! Just the spot to spend an afternoon. Great fun, plenty of space for imagination and so much local information in the audio tour, really gave it a personal feel. Just did the normal self guided tour but will be back for the monthly tour of the unlit tunnels! The layout makes it possible to spend as much time there are you want, sure you could zip round in 30 minutes or so, or wander and listen to all the extra bits of the tour and spend up to two hours there. The gift shop is teeny tiny, but the staff are so lovely. The tunnel are fairly on the cold side, but the first room you go in can be very warm, you are there for about 5 minutes so recommend a big thick coat you can take off for that bit.
The largest air raid shelters in Europe, and stunningly preserved. You won't find anything like it within a reasonable distance. It's extremely atmospheric and dare I say it, somewhat eerie. I recommend the extended tours where you need a hard hat and a torch to see the unlit tunnels.
Great step back in time, shows how lucky we are. Staff so helpful loved it
I first went here when it opened and so much has changed since then. We went on the guided tour run by Roger and his wife which was a fantastic experience. I cant reccomend this highly enough as it gives a fascinating look back into Stockport's history.
