Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

Remember to take a coat as gets chilly the further in you go.if possible get the recorder as sometimes unable to read all the information. Try not to go when raining as gets very busy. Stories about the local people and what they endured but the German soldiers and how some of them suffered also. Artefacts they show will surprise and the ingenious ways they adapted things when required.

This is a really interesting trip out for all ages. It only takes a couple of hours to do the whole thing thoroughly so can easily fit it into your day. Very easy to get public transport here and there is also an open topped bus. Good facilities (nice toilets, shop and cafe). If I were to go back again though I'd probably wrap up a bit warmer as it can get a bit chilly in the tunnels. Great history of the occupation and set out in a clear and concise way. I'd definitely recommend to family and friends.
