Secret Nuclear Bunker (Kelvedon Hatch, United Kingdom)

Hidden behind the doors of an unpretentious bungalow lies what was once one of Britain’s best kept secrets. Built in 1952 with 40.000 tons of concrete, 100 feet below, lies the bunker that was built with the purpose to give shelter to a devolved central government and military commanders if the UK would have been attacked and nuclear war broken out. The bunker consists of a maze of rooms that offered enough space to house 600 people, with own water supply and electricity generators. There is also a civilian operations room for Ministers or even the Prime Minister to organise survival measures following a nuclear attack, a scientists’ centre, military operations command centre to organize retaliation, canteen, 5 dormitories, a sick bay and a BBC Studio. Visitors can take an audio tour through the bunker which was built under such secrecy that not even its neighbours knew about its existence. There are free parking facilities, a gift shop, refreshments and toilets. Please note that due to its design and purpose of the bunker there are no lifts and the three storeys are only accessible via stairs. It is recommended to wear flat shoes. Opening times : Summer Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm (last entry) Weekend and holidays 10am to 5 pm (last entry) Winter Thursday to Sunday 10am to 4 pm
