Description:

A holiday in Jersey is not complete without a visit to Jersey War Tunnels...

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.

I can safely say that this is one of the best museums I have ever visited. It really brought the German occupation of Jersey to life and the interactive exhibits and personal stories from Jersey residents were excellent. It is so rare to see such well preserved Nazi memorabilia at close quarters. The only thing to bear in mind is... More

My husband and I had previously visited here separately before we met as teenagers back in the 70s and both remember it being a very haunting atmosphere. Visiting again 40 years later we both had the same feeling. Overall a enjoyable day and very informative about how the Jersey people coped during the occupation

Please wear comfortable shoes as the tunnels are over 1km long and quite chilly in areas as it's 35 meters underground , so wear a warm jumper or... More

Great story telling if the occupation by the Germans during world war 2. It brought home the trials and tribulations of the population some of whom were executed or sent to prisoner of war camps.

A fascinating insight into the history and what the people of Jersey went through during those dreadful years. Very thought provoking and as a nurse I was interested to see the hospital. Do give at least 2 to 3 hours as there is so much to see and read. Take time to watch the film and stories Tunnels also get... More

Isn't it too easy to condense 5 years of being under German control as just the occupation? Your visit to the tunnels is not intended to just see them but also provides an insight to life during those harrowing and difficult years. Of particular interest to me was the human psychology - betrayal, collaboration, dishonesty resistance and goodness. Your stroll... More
