Directions to York Cold War Bunker

Advanced Booking

Entry to the bunker is by guided tour only and pre-booking is required. The tours take place every hour and last approximately one hour.

Some of our sites can get very busy, especially on Bank Holidays. Our busiest times are between 11am and 2pm, so if you prefer to visit at a quieter time you may wish to visit outside of these hours.

Your booking is for the site/event only and does not guarantee a car parking space, which may carry an additional charge.

If you are a Member and wish to book, your ticket will still be free. Please remember to bring your English Heritage membership card with you. Members are able to book tickets for those included in the membership only. Any additional bookings made will be chargeable on site.

Please remember to bring your booking confirmation with you when you visit.
