Coach Trips to Stockport Air Raid Shelters

Step back in time and experience the sights and sounds of Britain's Home Front. Wander around the original tunnels, authentically re-equipped, which provide you with first-hand experience of daily life in 1940s wartime Britain.

Enjoy the displays and the state-of-the-art audio-guide which tell the stories of local people who shared the experience of the war.

Opened in 1939, the shelters were the largest purpose-built civilian air raid shelters in the country designed to provide shelter for up to 3,850 people. They were extended in 1940-41 to accommodate 6,500.

In 1996 the Shelters reopened and have been imaginatively restored to give visitors a feel for the era.
