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 tunnels take you on a chronological journey through the timeline of the war and the German occupation of Jersey. Interactive, well illustrated and thoughtfully presented, it goes beyond a sequence of exhibits and is genuinely thought provoking.

A lot to see. But you do need to keep a jumper or a cardigan with you. We went on the warmest day last week and the number of people who were obviously cold was amazing. You need to allow at least half a day if you want to see it all.

I loved this. But i would say that as im interested in military history. It was £37 for 2 adults and a child which i thought was a bit steep. The exhibits were excellent. The buses are not frequent but you can take a vintage bus there and back. I would rate this as a must do in jersey.

This was an unexpected, that it was so disabled friendly. The whole experience is good, well laid out exhibition with plenty to see. Its a long walk with visual films on large screens and some figures have voice recordings. Don't miss the memorial walls above the café. The café is upstairs has lift access and is reasonably priced, outside seating... More

This trip was definitely worth a visit. The history and sadness behind this place should never be forgotten.

Not a museum type I'd have chosen to go to - but it's an experience not to miss. It's a really immersive place, with huge amounts of information, all carefully laid out in a format that makes you want to follow everything. It will really make you think about life on occupied Jersey, and see all the military installations on... More

A lot of interesting information about Jersey as a whole during the war however not enough info about the actual tunnel really, wanted more facts about the tunnels and hospital although having said that the amount of information given at the museum really was excellent, not too much writing in one place and well spaced. Was amazing how massive the... More

This was a visit to remember the site is a little hard to find when driving yourself,but there are buses running each day for those with out own transport.On reaching the free car park it's hard to tell just what the site of the hospital is all about ,as the very small entrance and shop does not have any visual...
