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.

An extremely interesting memorial of the German occupation of Jersey using the tunnels dug by thousands of prisoners of war and foreign slaves to house a military hospital. Lots of exhibits, film and recordings. Not to be missed.

Visited the tunnels 4 times now and each time it has changed for the better. My first visit was in 1988 and it sent shivers down my spine and still does now. There was no visitor centre the first time it is a lot more visitor friendly. The remembrance garden is not to be overlooked. The passport system is great... More

Went with my brother. The place is very interesting. With lots of history. My brother had been before. He commented that it had been commercialised a bit. But still had good atmosphere. There is a lovely cafe to sit for refreshments. Good for families with children from 6 up

I like history and I'm a fast reader so this venue was great for me. I got the sense that my partner felt a little bored before I was done though, there is lots of reading and it's not very interactive like other museums so i'd warn smaller kids away from it but it was very interesting (as someone who...

Visiting Jersey for the first time last year so of course visited the all sites possible. This was one of the most memorable due to its historical factor. It sends chills down you spine with the atmosphere. Great for learning in more depth about Jerseys history. You can also find out more about your own family in the shop and... More

My second visit to the war tunnels, spaced about 5 years apart. Everytime I've gone I have felt incredibly moved by the story of Jersey during the occupation. Still within many peoples living memory it's incredible to think how their lives were changed during those years. I have since discovered my great uncle was a resident of Jersey during the... More
