Description: A holiday in Jersey is not complete without a visit to Jersey War Tunnels...
A holiday in Jersey is not complete without a visit to Jersey War Tunnels to learn about and experience one of the most difficult periods in the Island’s history.The story of the German Occupation of Jersey is as compelling as it is strange to think that this small area of Britain was Occupied by the Nazis and forced to fly the Swastika for five dark years.The Jersey War Tunnels are no ordinary museum, they are an unforgettable experience. Dug deep into the hillside within St Peter’s Valley, the Tunnels were originally intended to be a barracks and ammunition store for the occupying forces. Today they tell the story of the Occupation, looking at how all sides coped under such extreme conditions and examining the daily dilemmas that were faced by island residents and the authorities, whether Jersey, British or German.Outside the Tunnels, you can enjoy quiet moments in the Garden of Reflection or a woodland walk along the historic War Trail. Refresh yourself in the Pantry Cafe or enjoy the shop and craft activities in LoveBird Too.

the price of £10-50 I find a bit over the top, when I visited the tunnels back in 1987, there was much more to see, now there is a café + shop on site, not there in 1987, the shop was very busy along with the café, so I would have thought it would be cheaper, a bit disappointed.

Worth visit. The only.thing like it on jersey and a high quality attraction. Informative, if a little long as an attraction. Be warned it's a couple degrees colder in the tunnels. All inside so a good wet weather activity.

A really interesting visit. Lots to see and read about, very informative. Quite moving. Not difficult to access the tunnels and a good cafe afterwards. Nice touch to give you an identity card each, on entry, so that you can look up the fate of the person when you finish your tour.

Jersey War Tunnels-very well laid out and extremely interesting exhibition on Jersey's wartime experience. Was concerned I might feel claustrophobic but this was not the case-top tip it is very cold down there so wrap up warm!

I visited the war tunnels recently and was moved by the whole experience. It is well worth a visit as it gives a very clear history of what the islands went through in the war. Dates are lit up on the floor and the corresponding room gives you all the information pertaining to that date. On entry to the museum... More

So worthwhile. I learned so much about the invasion of Jersey and found the whole trip fascinating. There is even an Enigma machine in the tunnels, which is smaller than I thought it would be. If you visit Jersey, do go ... It's great
