Stockport & The Air Raid Shelters

Children travel and visit free (1 child free per adult)!

Stockport…. Over 50 independent businesses selling everything from beer to buttons offer a great shopping experience at Stockport Market. Operating from its three indoor Market Halls around the Market Place, Stockport Market provides a unique shopping experience. An outdoor market also runs every Tuesday with a changing range of goods throughout the year.

Onto the 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 Stockport Council re-opened the shelters as a visitor attraction and this unique, award-winning museum became one of Stockport’s most significant attractions and educational facilities. Excavated into the natural sandstone cliffs of the town centre, the mile-long network of underground tunnels offers visitors a direct and exceptional insights into life on the Home Front.

Senior Price – £17.00

Child Price (if more children travelling than adults) – £12.00
