The Stockport Air Raid Shelters are a jolting walk back in time near Manchester. Located about 6 miles from the main Manchester area and in great Manchester, this place is an interesting, short excursion from the city Centre. The place will transport you into a dark time- the Britain of the 1940s during the war. It is quite fascinating to see the details of how people lived in those times and how things were.

The shelters were created to protect the civilians from the constant bombings. These tunnels have been preserved and one can explore these areas to know more about the life and times of the Second World War. You can choose to take a guided tour if you want to hear all the stories of those times.

There are also a few attractions like the Staircase house and Bramall hall which have a similar sort of a theme. If you want to experience how the people of Manchester might have survived the Blitz-Krieg attacks of the Germans, this is a great attraction to visit. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Manchester Itinerary 3 Days.

  • Great experience, we were lucky enough to get the extended visit, amazing place and eery and times, especially under the graveyard!! Also cool dinosaur bone that is visible.

  • Visited with my 6 and 3 year old. Staff were really helpful and engaging. History brought to life with great exhibits. Definitely recommend this, particularly for those with slightly older children

  • Fantastic place to be, wonderfully restored and an absolute must to go to. If you have never been to an air raid shelter before, this is the place where you should go.

  • Took our Y5 class today as part of our history learning about WW2 amazing! Everyone should learn how hard and frightening it must have been then. LOVED it

  • Visited for the first time, with daughters and grandchildren, the shelters are interesting although the audio guugu was a little confusing,£5 for adults with a free audioguide,chi child are free,50p for the audioguide.my concern though is the only toilet is for a disabled person. The staff obviously assuming that no one in our party had a non visible disability as we were directed to the public toilets across the road. Staff need to be retrained to acknowledge not all disability is visible and many in this situation may find their particular disability emvarrembarr. I find it strange there is no public toilets in the building given it's popularity with school children. Don't go if you have a huddeh disability and imi sure just how wheelchair accessible it actually is.
