  • Magnificently preserved part of history hidden 60ft below ground in a mass-developed part of West London. Its description belies its true significance and its contribution to the outcome of WW2. A new visitors centre currently being constructed promises many new and exciting features and accessibility. Viewing of the bunker is by appointment only for H&S reasons.
  • A fascinating piece of our history, which deserves to be preserved. It has been lovingly restored by volunteers and relies on donations- so please support it. The tour of the bunker and museum exhibits they have right now are a must see for anyone interested in WW2. When the new visitor centre is finished (due September 2017) it should be even better.
  • Absolutely fascinating. Associated museum and cafe will open late February 2018. I will be back then.
  • If you into Second World War the command centre is an eye opener brilliant. building a new centre at the moment so could be a bit chaotic getting there but when it's finished decent car park and a new visitors centre and it's free give it a try
  • Worth a visit. Very interesting look at the 2nd WW.
