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.

Would recommend a visit, it was quite busy when we arrived and found we where quite rushed around, would have liked to have taken a little more time to read the displays and get to know a bit more about what it was like on the island and for the islanders during the German occupation. Still had a good day.

Served by bus either Libertybus or direct contractor. Libertybus is hourly. The actual underground hospital is unique in itself and well worth the cost of admission. When you pay you get a identity card which is then up to you to find out about them on the wall in the upstairs cafe. As for the tunnels themselves wear something warm... More

A visit too about one hour to walk round, most displays required careful reading. Distinct lack of interactive displays. They should visit the IWM and make in more engaging. Ok for older tourists with time and patience to read displays but would be very boring for younger tourist. Most displays and walkways were too dark - no doubt intended to... More

This was my 4th visit to Jersey and my 3rd visit to the war tunnels. Each time I've visited it has improved. I would recommend everyone visits the war tunnels as soon as they arrive on the island. It really gives you a feel for the island and it's origins. The tunnels tell a story as you walk around and... More

We found it very difficult to see very much because it was so crowded and the attraction is based around written panels. To be fair we arrived just after two coach loads and have a young son so this was about the worst case scenario for us. There really needs to be some kind of booking system to prevent overcrowding...

Make sure you wear something fairly warm as it can be very damp and chilly in the tunnels. Only downside there are no toilets in the actual tunnels so as takes a minimum of an hour to go around properly it can be a problem. The shop does not sell very much at all regarding the tunnels or issues regarding... More
