The basics

Since it's set in residential surroundings just north of York, it’s easy to at first miss the bunker, though once you step inside, its complexity becomes clear. Tours typically begin by screening an introductory film that sets the scene of Britain’s Cold War, before guiding visitors through the filter rooms, decontamination facility, and dormitories, all of which have all been painstakingly restored to their original form.
