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. « less

We visited the War Tunnels some six years ago and the facility was being updated and upgraded - they've done an excellent job. The experience is even more informative and genuinely emotional - it really gives you a feel for what the inhabitants went through. If you care about Jersey this is an essential visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed the War Tunnels – the exhibition is very informative and well presented. I felt like I got a full picture of Jersey’s history around WW2 whilst visiting a pretty unique location. Definitely worth spending a couple of hours here!

Really found the Tunnels of great interest. There are plenty of exhibitions to keep one interested. The tour takes about 1.5 hours to complete. The souvenir shop is well worth it. Take the Jersey tour bus at £5 per head to get to the War Tunnels. Well worth a visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the war tunnels in Jersey and chose to visit them on our way back to the airport, which is only a couple of miles away. First thing to say is that car parking can be a bit of a nightmare, although we got lucky when somebody pulled out just as we arrived. One tip... More

A place to go if you want to find about about the history of the occupation of Jersey. Very thought provoking with lots of real life artefacts as in hand written letters, military memorabilia and exhibits where they had tried to reconstruct real life of the time. The film exhibits were very good with people giving their real life experiences... More

Firstly, I have mobility problems but a electric mobility scooter was available for hire. The tunnels are very long so could not have made walked them. By the way it is pretty cool in the deepest part of the tunnels 10C and so a jumper or jacket is useful. It is all so well researched and portrayed in just the... More

Taking the time to walk through this tunnel of history is amazing. From the long walk into the tunnels to asking yourself...would I go or would I stay? let yourself drift back in time and feel what the locals went through. Take your time but this experience is a must.
