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.

Taking the bus from St Hellier was easy and the commentary both to the tunnels and back was excellent. It was quite crowded in the tunnels and some groups seemed to want to stay together for ages, blocking the way of others. However it was...More

Everyone who visits Jersey should visit the war tunnels. They are very well done with interesting informative signs in every room. It is quite cold in the tunnels, so go dressed appropriately! Allow a couple of hours for your visit.

The presentation of this attraction is first class, and helps us remember the horrors of war and hopefully educate those who need educating that such events in history should never be repeated. Vastly improved since our first visit some 33 years ago.
