Experience the Blitz spirit at Stockport Air Raid Shelters

Stockport, Greater Manchester

See how Britain survived the Blitz as you negotiate this dark labyrinth of tunnels at Stockport Air Raid Shelters.

It’s hard to imagine how frightening it must have been to experience a real air raid but the Stockport Air Raid Shelters give you a bit of a glimpse. Those confident of not losing their way can explore this labyrinth of tunnels at their leisure and take in the network of narrow passageways, carved out of sandstone cliffs, which once provided a refuge for 6,500 of Stockport’s inhabitants.

Alternatively, there are guided tours where you’ll discover the stories behind the tunnels and those they protected or, for the very brave, there are night-time explorer expeditions, where the shelters are darkened so you can really experience what it was like surviving the bleakest days of the Blitz.
