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.

This is an excellent exhibition, take time to read and digest the displays. (Take warm clothing!). This experience will help you to understand the difficulties our ancestors had to cope with, decisions people had to make and positions they were forced into. Makes you wonder what you would have done if you had lived on Jersey at that time?

this was our first visit to jersey, and we loved it. This one of places we had to see, its hard to believe that this island was invaded 70 years ago

This was the second time that I'd visited the tunnels and I found it very moving reading the information and looking at the exhibitions and made me realise just how hard life must have been for the locals during the war and how brave they all were during this time.

Loved the new exhibition and found it well worth the return visit. Thought the fact you got identity card of someone living in Jersey through the occupation excellent - after a good walk round the cold tunnels with lots of different displays to previous visits we then went to the visitor cafe and looked the person up. They have all... More

This is such a well thought out exhibition which takes you into the war tunnels. It's chilly underground so take a sweater so that you don't feel like you need to rush out. You will learn a lot about the German Invasion of Jersey and how the UK chose not to defend the Channel Islands during the war. It's well... More

Great attraction. Well laid out with lots of interesting facts covering the casino in ww11 and subsequent liberation made more personal by the reference to local people. Recommended time for visit is 2 hours but it took us 3 including coffee and cake at the cafe. Parking good although gets filled up quick on a busy day. No charge to... More

Worth paying the extra for the audio. Very thought provoking. What would you have done if you were on the island in the German occupation? Don't leave the island without going.Allow 3 hours.

We toured the Tunnels on a rainy day (a good time to go as you are underground anyway). We took the 1951 Leyland coach ride with "Jersey Bus & Coach Tours" (it was only 1 Pound more than the local transit and more convenient). We arrived on the first coach so the War Tunnels were quite busy with the first... More

Very interesting and thought provoking visit. Very sorry to learn that 300 jersey people went to the concentration camps for crimes against the state. One lady went to the concentration camps for rejecting the advances of a German soldier. Didn't realise you can make flour out of potatoes.
