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.

Great experience. Not to be missed when visiting Jersey. Made you think of the people who had to endure this period occupation.

Wasn't sure what to expect but at the end found the whole experience fascinating. The atmosphere in the tunnels added to the ambience. They give you a copy of an Identity Card of a real person at the start and you can see what happened to them at the end - nice touch. OK so the history was before my... More

A very well set up series of exhibits making maximum use of the extensive tunnel network. Be aware that it is pretty chilly and you could have a long walk should you need the loo during your visit. I regretted leaving my jacket in the car. Thoroughly recommended as a worthwhile place to visit and with a good shop and... More

The Jersey War Tunnels were a well set out and interesting exhibition of the events of the island's occupation in WW2. The exhibits were very informative and provided lots of information; even someone like myself who has studied WW2 was able to learn lots of new things. It was quite hard to see to the unfinished tunnels however, which was... More

Should have worn more clothing for this trip, it's definitely cold inside the tunnels so wrap up warm. The great thing about the tunnels is that you can walk around at your own pace, there is lots to read and the whole trip was very informative. Definitely learnt lots about Jersey during the Second World War. Made you think, what... More

An interesting exhibition of the occupation of Jersey, lots to read and see, almost all in the tunnels. Talks about the "social history" side of the occupation and has some good exhibits such as a STUG III and a Kubelwagen. Just take something warm as the tunnels can be cold.

Yes, do wear a jumper because you will be down in the dank tunnels for hours, aside from the feat of engineering itself the vast array of carefully chosen, authentic and easy to read exhibits made this a special day out. Our two teenagers were pretty silent (a rare event) throughout because they were so intent reading and listening to... More

Genuinely flabbergasted by how much I learnt on this day in Jersey. Seems inappropriate to say 'enjoyed' but it really is utterly fascinating, and brings to light a part of the war that, especially as British people, is NEVER mentioned. Thoroughly sobering but informative - leave time to read every article and sign. You won't regret it.

The war tunnels were educational and were worth visiting. The only thing that disappointed me was that they gave us identification cards but did not tell us anything about their particular story.
