About this event

Drakelow Tunnels Tour!

Saturday 7th May

We are opening the Cold War museum and welcoming visitors to come on a guided tour inside the tunnels and see some of the ongoing works.

Tour times: 10am, 11.30am, 1.00pm & 2.30pm.

All sales and donations go straight into the renovation works and help preserve WW2 and Cold War history for future generations to come.

Some of the key areas we are working on:

  • WWII Shadow Factory Area
  • 1960s / 1980s Government Offices
  • BT Communications Hub / Server Room
  • BBC Studio / Producers Room
  • Generator Hall / Switch Board Room
  • And more…

If you have been to previous tours, hopefully you will see something different this time round.

Tour duration will be approximately 45 minutes.

Adults (16 +) £6.50 + eventbrite fee

Children (10-15) £3.50 + eventbrite fee

Due to the continued renovations, we are not allowing children under the age of 10 to attend due to health and safety (when we open fully this will no longer apply).

PLEASE NOTE: There is now a strict no visitor photography or filming rule. Please do not bring recording devices. All mobile phones must be switched off before entering.

You will be reminded of this before you enter the bunker, anyone seen taking pictures or filming will be asked to leave.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: Unfortunately at this time we are unable to support wheelchair access in the museum due to ongoing construction work within the tunnels. However, when the museum is completed we will be able to accommodate wheelchair access.
