I had been looking forward to my visit to Hack Green for quite a while, but really didn't know what to expect? As I approached the Bunkers address, following all the signs for the bunker, you drive through lush Cheshire countryside; it's hard to imagine such a facility would exist here. I spent about 2 hours inside the bunker in total, but I have to say, if my visit hadn't of been a whistle stop tour I could have easily spent half a day here, maybe more. Everything inside the bunker is in the condition it would have been fifty years ago, it was all as if the occupants had merely stepped out for a cigarette. I have to say this attraction is worth every penny and more! But with me being bound by the official secrets act I cannot tell you anymore about what's inside! Apart from, if you don't come and visit this bunker you are missing out on an opportunity of a lifetime.
