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.

The whole experience has been updated and expanded since my last visit. There is a new visitor centre with shop and a cafe. The cafe was not brilliant although we only had a coffee and a cake. The staff seemed a little disinterested. However, the...More

The detail and atmosphere crated here was excellent. One could really feel, as much as on can of course, what it might have been like living under German occupation. The sounds, notices, photographs etc really told their tale. Thank you

I first visited these tunnels in 1964 and how they have changed. They where as I recall then called the Underground Hospital. They have now been totally commercialised which considering how many people died building this concrete reminder is both distasteful and disrespectful.

Fascinating look around the war tunnels dug as part of the Nazi occupation of Jersey, which lasted from 1940-1945. A very interesting look at what the people of Jersey had to endure for 5 whole years, which as a man from mainland England one forgets...More

Easy to find with free parking, and this has to be a “must visit” for the general tourist in Jersey. The displays and information are well presented and laid out as you wander the tunnels. The tunnels compliment the various Occupation sites about the island,...More
