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.

This is a very interesting tour. It really makes you think about what it was like and how you would react in that position. Lots of information on display, no need for an audio guide. Nice touch is that you are given an identity card...More

A really well put together place. I learned a lot and it has appeal for all ages. We spent about two hours there, with two children aged 15 and 12, who did it quicker than we did but enjoyed it. Very atmospheric.

These really are an essential visit even on a short trip to Jersey. The tunnel labyrinth is extensive and requires at least three hours to do this justice. Slave workers were used to create the tunnels by the occupying German forces and many of the...More

A member of the staff asked me if I had enjoyed the visit - I don't think "enjoyed" is quite the right word. They were sobering, fascinating, haunting, informative, emotive and I would recommend them to anyone visiting the island, particularly if you have an...More

I was very impressed with the tunnels - a huge amount of information and much better than I expected. My only criticism is that there were no toilets or anywhere to sit down until you are almost at the end (approx. 2 hours). As someone...More
