I live in Stockport and think that Stockport Air raid shelters rivals any of the country's attractions. It is a unique experience and they use information hand sets you carry around.. First you view a film with history of ww2 and the shelter then walk freely through the shelter which is a maize of tunnels dug out by hand into... More

Great attraction, good value for money and great for children and it really gives you an idea of what it was like to live during the war

Easy to find, cheap entry well worth a visit, the information guides are helpful and informative with extra information and personal accounts from those that used the shelter. Would like to see more of the corridors open with more bunks to get a feel of the scale. I thought the infirmary was brilliant

Have moved to Stockport over 25 years and never got round to visiting here, we finally went as it was a damp day. The price is £4.75 with under 16 free, which is a good value. We bought Multi site pass for £12.50 which also includes Staircase House, Bramall Hall, Hat Works. Bargain! The tour is self guided and there... More

Really enjoyed our visit to the Stockport Air Raid Tunnels, which provide a fantastic and authentic insight in to the war years and some of the hardships endured. The tunnels themselves are well preserved with lots of authentic artefacts and props from the era, so provide a feel for how things must have been for those taking shelter. With up... More

We went in January with our 5 and 8 year olds. I never knew that this was here despite growing up in the area myself. We are home schooling so wanted a fun interactive way to talk about the history of the Second World War with our children. In short, it's a must go for every child. To be able... More
