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

At first we were taken aback by the £11.50 each ticket price - especially as we'd arrived on a "Jersey Tours - War Tunnels Tour", and naturally assumed the entrance fee was included in the tour price of £5 each - it wasn't - but the Tunnels were fantastic. Easy to follow information boards, sound effects, recreated scenes from war-life... More

I’d been a bit of a swot about these tunnels and had bought a book about them a year ago so was really looking forward to this visit. Staying in St Malo I thought the ferry trip across to Jersey might be fun and an easy way to visit the island and so it proved. Being a bit of a... More

My visit to the tunnels lasted about two hours after a walk in from Bue Royal (NOT recommended for those with luggage or children due to lack of pavements) and a cold drink from the cafe to recover. Staff were extremely welcoming, and stored an item of luggage safely for me as pre arranged (probably best not to rock up... More

This is one of the best historical attractions we have been to. As you go down into the tunnel, the atmosphere builds as you find out just how the people of Jersey were affected by enemy occupation during the 2nd World War. It is chilly as you get further into the tunnels so you might need a jacket

An informative and interesting attraction. A very real insight into Jersey under occupation. The interactive experience and genuine commentaries make this memorable and thought provoking. Don't miss this walk into Jersey's wartime past.

Jersey War Tunnels are of interest to world history but also to give an insight into the story or the island. This was the first point of interest we visited in Jersey. We went on a bank holiday weekend and it was so busy that we spent the first 20 or 30 mins in a very slow moving, crowded line... More

This is the 2nd time I have visted the tunnels however the last was over 15 years ago. The exhibition takes you thought what happened in Jersey leading up to and during the 2nd world war. It's interactive and informative, with things that will engage all ages. It's pretty cold in the tunnels so I would recommend taking a something... More

On a family holiday to visit relatives we visited the Jersey War Tunnels and found the names of my Grandfathers' brothers, part of the Jersey Resistance/Underground during The Occupation.
