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.

Wear very warm clothing. Seems chilly when you start, you'll be freezing by the end if you don't wrap up. It's so interesting, allow for a couple of hours. Great and important history presented in an interesting and innovative way. Well worth a visit. Nice...More

This was a good visit to a moving and interesting experience. You do need a lot of time to see this and there is a lot of walking to do. Two improvements could be made: work with the local shop-mobility to hire our mobility chairs...More

We could not fault anything on this visit. You cannot visit Jersey and not come here. Most highly recommended

I went here with 36 friends we all thoroughly enjoyed the visit. So much information we all were talking about it and how little we knew previously. Would recommend everyone to visit this piece of history. Suitable for young and old.

Their website shows open 1st March to 31st October Monday to Sunday from 10 to 6 (last entry to main exhibition at 4.30). Suggest you arrive early in day if by car - free car park can get very full.
