Veryan Bunker Tours

Discover the cold war secrets hidden up on Nare Head.

  • Booking essential

Join our tours by local expert Lawrence Holmes and the ROC team and hear the stories behind what went on in a nuclear bunker and the neighbouring starfish bunker.

The nuclear bunker is the only preserved ROC nuclear bunker in the south west open to the public on a regular basis and the decoy command bunker is the only known preserved one of its type in the UK.

Together they make Veryan Bunkers a unique site to visit.
