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.

We took the kids and even they enjoyed it. It was a nice surprise to see a pic of my grandad there as he was a cop during the occupation. You can take a tour bus to it from town if you want. It's not cheap but especially good for rainy days!

have visited the tunnels twice the second was after the refurbishment, both visits were very interesting. A visit to Jersey would not be complete without seeing the Tunnels.

It is a very interesting place to visit with easy parking, the lay out of the displays give very interesting history of the occupation of Jersey by Germany from 1940 to 1945 and also gives details of the slave labour who built these tunnels . It was originally built as a hospital

It's full of interesting items from the war period. It's quite cold on a very hot day as the temperature stays at around ten degrees all the time... So don't wear flip flops and shorts like we did!

Very informative trip giving a flavour of life under the occupation. You are given ID if a resident at the time of the occupation and after the visit we went to the information office to find out the fate of each. Moving.

Not old enough to have been part of the WW2 horror, however coming from Portsmouth I grew up being told all about it from aunties and uncles which gave me a huge interest in this part of our history. The fact that the island was occupied really comes home to you when you visit the tunnels and find out how... More

As part of a long weekend in Jersey, I had to visit this place and I was glad I did! I learnt so much from this short visit! After the visit, we headed to the cafe onsite but decided not to get anything as the queue was massive and opted to return to St Helier where we were staying. There... More
