Overview

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.

Interesting to see war history of the only occupied part of British soil during the Second World War. Atmospheric and interesting and good for a rainy day. We took the bus. The occupation was marked by repression of the local population especially in the later...More

Fascinating insight into how life was for not only the residents of Jersey but also the prisoners that were used so cruelly by their captors during the second world war. A real eye opener and a must see.

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Gave an insight into the slave labour made to dig the tunnels, but also how the Germans and Islanders interacted with each other. The giving of ID cards and finding what happened to the person on the information boards (in the...More

It was a very interesting an historic and thought provoking event. The scale of the tunnels and number of them, all created by human forced labour is incredible, and indeed sad. There are a good variety of military artefacts which added to the atmosphere. Very...More

very informative and interesting describes how the residents of Jersey were left to fend for themselves during German Occupation. . You need to wear something warm as it is cold in the Tunnels. Excellent cafe and shop across the road . Definitely worth visiting.

So much to see hear, very interesting. Took the open top vintage bus tour to the tunnels. Can get the local bus there but much better to arrive in style! Plenty of photo opportunities and information. Café and gift shop.

Extremely interesting information about the German occupation of the Island from 1940. An especially nice touch is that when you buy a ticket they give you a real person's identity card and you can track what happened to them (survived, or died and how). A...More
