Drakelow RGHQ 9.2 – Cold War Underground Bunker Tour

Kingsford Lane, Drakelow
Kidderminster, Worcestershire DY11 5SW United Kingdom

24th - 24th September 2022

  • This event has passed.

Come with us underground on a unique in-depth experience to Drakelow RGHQ 9.2 Cold War Bunker (Nr Kidderminster, Worcs.). Discover Cold War secrets buried deep from public view.

In the 1980s, a portion of the massive Second World War shadow factory tunnel complex built by Rover was repurposed as an RGHQ – Regional Government Headquarters 9.2. A state-of-the-art Civil Defence bunker was created so that, should the Cold War ever have turned hot, command and control could still be maintained for the West Midlands (Civil Defence Region 9).

Explore tunnels dug deep beneath a hill in Kingsford Country Park. Find out what life would have been like for those sheltering during World War Three in the nuclear era of “Mutually Assured Destruction”.
