Located deep beneath the Essex Countryside underneath an innocent looking bungalow, Kelvedon Hatch was to be used in the dreadful event of a nuclear war it was designed to accommodate 600 military and Government personnel.
The Kelvedon Hatch Secret Nuclear Bunker
The Bunker had three main lives Initially as an RAF ROTOR Station and latterly a Regional Government Headquarters with a brief period in the 1960's as a civil defence centre. There were also spare bunk beds in the tunnel to help accommodate some of the hundreds of civilian and military personnel that would be stationed here in time of nuclear attack.
There are several films to watch during tours and a dressing up area where you can try on authentic military uniforms and gas masks.
