Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker

Kelvedon Hatch is currently the biggest and deepest cold war bunker open to the public in southeast England.

Witness the three lives of the bunker starting with its role as an RAF ROTOR Station, then a brief period as a civil defence centre through to its most recent life as a Regional Government HQ. It was designed for up to 600 military and civilian personnel, possibly even the Prime Minister, their collective task being to organise the survival of the population in the aftermath of a nuclear war.

Guided tours for adults and children (self guided by personal handsets) are available which both follow the same route.

There are several films to watch, a dressing up area where you can try on authentic military uniforms and gas masks and a computerized quiz.

An on-site canteen serves light refreshments every day.
