The Saturdays are 11-5, and the Sunday’s 10-1. No need to book but when busy there may be a short wait on the surface before you are able to venture underground. There will be displays covering all eras of the Corps history from 1925 to 1991, bith above ground and below.
There is ample space in the compound to picnic so makes a good day out for the family!
Entry is free but a donation is appreciated.

The bunker is in a small village, it involves a pleasant walk down a small footpath approx 1/2 mile and also involves descending a fixed vertical ladder for around 15 feet.

Walk down behind the church, through the church yard and onto the lane that runs a long the bottom edge of the church yard. Follow it along and look for the signs!
