The address above is a contact address for the owners of the bunker: Full directions to the site itself are on the Secret Nuclear Bunker website.

The tour is self guided by personal handsets. This is included in admission price. There is an adult and child tour available which both follow the same route.

There are several films to watch en route and a dressing up area where you can try on authentic military uniforms and gas masks! There is also a computerized quiz to see how well you have been listening to the tour.

As a rough guide the tour takes about an hour to complete.
However should you stop to watch all of the included films and take some time out to try on the uniforms then this extends the tour by another hour. Some people find one tour just isn't enough to take it all in!

There is a canteen on site serving light refreshments every day, including soup. Most weekends the canteen will serve hot meals.

For disabled access please contact us in advance.
