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.

Pointers - approximately 5kms. from St. Helier town proper and around 12mins. by car - went on a weekday, had enough parking space - actual tunnel is divided into various segments following WW2 timeline, detailing what transpired in Jersey. - look to spend around 2-3hours walking and reading/listening

Last visited this place some 25 years ago, but my, how its developed and improved. More tunnels opened up, with great interactive displays and information. It now gives a real feeling as what it must have been like to live under occupation. We took our 9 year old grandson with us, and he was in awe with the whole thing.... More

I found my visit to the war tunnels fascinating. It was very interesting, informative and well planned giving information in a concise and easy to read manner. My mum who is not keen on history especially regarding the war years also really enjoyed it. The visit takes roughly two hours and is easily reached via the local bus service. It... More

A very interesting tour of these military (part finished) construction included a great deal of detail of the occupation and the effect it had on the local population. Easy bus trip and a two hour tour makes this a good half day.

Found the war tunnels/underground hospital really interesting and definitely glad we went although thought it was a little overpriced at £12 each. We visited on the last day of the season and found that the cafe had shut 2 weeks earlier for renovation, that was a mistake on their part as definitely would have bought a nice hot drink and...

A must visit, a truly fascinating place which gives you a real insight into the history of the island of Jersey and the German occupation during the Second World War! We took our niece and nephew and it certainly made us all appreciate what people went through.

Really amazing place to visit, we spend more then 3 hr to make the whole tour and is was never boring. It learns you a lot about the situation on the island during WW II in times of occupation. Very interesting for teenagers !! After the visit we had a nice lunch in the coffee shop .... To be recommended... More

Went to visit the Tunnels on my own, and as it was the end of the season it was very quite, cafe not open and small shop lacking in goods, as for the tunnels most en lighting and well worth the trip.
