RAF Ash used for the same thing.
Patrington, Anstruther & Kelvedon Hatch are museums.
I can't remember which one, but there's another which is used for document storage.
Yet another couple have had their guardroom bungalows turned into private houses. In one case (Trimingham, IIRC), it was sold off, and converted into a house. The RAF then decided they needed it back, and repurchased it.
The piece de resistance though has to be RAF Bempton. Used by a witches coven. I shit you not. Cmplete with sexual deviancy. Pics, you say? Well of course:

I know of one that is (or probably was these days) a telephone exchange, and a couple of the civil defence bunkers back home are now in the hands of the big four banks and used as server facilities.
There's one guy who runs a mushroom farm out of a bunker, and another who runs a Wine Cellar business.
I've seen a couple of "Grand Designs" style houses/conversions. Including those little ones you get in back gardens in the US that are now "Lad-Pads" (N.B. - "Lad-Pad" - not "Rape-Shed".)I Piss Excellence.
