This is an interesting but not fascinating attraction. It doesn't have a lot of history or explanation, just a series of empty underground tunnels (which were very cold and wet when we were there). It's rather depressing, although there is an interesting section at the...More

The clue is in the name. Don't go expecting anything more. It is a very atmospheric place. Largely vast and empty, its scale and structure are an imposing feat of dark World War 2 possibilities of what could have been. Don't expect to spend the...More

How anyone got better in the dark, cold (~10C) damp tunnels which were hospital wards ..... ? but maybe they didn’t. We found the displays in the early part interesting but then miles of cool damp tunnels turned out to be ammunition stores once. It...More

The underground hospital is very eerie. Me and my partner were the only people in there. The music and footprints as we were walking around made it even more spooky. But it was very interesting! A must see when going on a trip or holiday...More

It may be a sobering thought the many Slave and Forced labours gave their lives to build these tunnels, but for a tourists its no more then several miles of cold damp tunnels with nothing much to see. Unless you are in to military history...More
