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.

A very good place to visit if you are interested in WW2 and or The Occupation of Jersey. The tunnels have been turned into a tourist place of interest very tastefully. It gives a good insight into island life during the occupation without being depressing. Certainly makes you think. Well worth a visit.

I checked reviews before going and every review said wear a coat! Brrrr I can definitely echo that. Take a jumper it's very chilly down there and I was glad I took a coat 😊☃ very interesting and so informative lots to learn. I'm a little claustrophobic but the tunnels are quite wide plenty of room and not dark at... More

SO disappointed that it was closed during the winter. Even the hotel concierge didn't know that you cannot visit the tunnels between December and March.

Certainly a MUST DO when you go to Jersey......fantastic eye opener of WW2 of how the people of the Island were treated, including radio and telephone conversations that took place....which were unbelievable...but true, although the hospital was never used.....its a master class of engineering by the Germans.....so nothing new there then....the childrens shoes will make you weep which were made...

Went here when visiting Jersey. I found this very interesting and it happened to be raining the day we visited so it was perfect. The tunnels are well maintained and the gardens were worth a mini walk after. The cafe is good as it is all within the theme and it was good to try and find your "character" Recommend... More

I visited the war tunnels by myself as a getaway and I was very impressed with how it was all set out, lots of interesting exhibits the day I went was a quiet day so I was by myself down in the tunnels which was quite scary. I was also impressed with the free bus service they put on to... More

We went on a trip here while on holiday in Jersey. It was an experience to see these tunnels & it really brought it home just how bad it was in the war. Unfortunately because it was so late in the year they were closing for the season & unfortunately no cafe facility, no drinks for sale in the shop,... More

We weren't sure what to expect as we were told by friends that we must go. We weren't disappointed. Reading the history of the Island our eyes were opened as to what the inhabitants had to endure during the war.Exhibits like this must always be preserved to let future generations remember what our ancestors had to do to survive.
