“Worth a visit for anyone interested in mililtary history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We try to visit all the bunkers when we come to Jersey but need to check the opening times as they're not open all of the time. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and if you want to join the Channel Islands Occupation Society, you will get free entry to all of these bunkers when they are open.

Very interesting to look at (and great views too). Not open when I visited but there are noticeboards which provide details.

“Very interesting (no pun intended)!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Went mid-week and so was not able to gain access inside the fortifications. Nevertheless, it was a very interesting hour spend and some nice scenic views for those not interested in WW2 stuff. Take the advice of other reviewers & check the opening times before going as it sounds like the entrance fee of £2.50 is a bargain.

“worth a visit, check opening times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We visited the battery, after seeing the tourist leaflet. we timed our visit, so they were open...check this, its only open on weekends mostly, so check before you go on the channel islands occupation society website. We paid £2.50 to go in, worth every penny, and a real insight. The volunteers (volunteers - hence the limited opening hours) were fantastic and knew their stuff.

CIOS_Jersey, Owner at Battery Lothringen, responded to this review, June 24, 2014
Our bunkers are opened by volunteers (we are a non-profit historical society) and so we regret we can't keep them open full time. Opening times are listed on our website and kept current. If you come with a group we are happy to do private group tours of this and our other bunkers year-round.

Apologies for not being open on the day you visited but if you return to Jersey I hope you come on an open day, or at least contact us ahead of time to arrange a private tour. This is a really large, unique bunker extending three levels down and we hope you can see the inside someday.
