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.

A must visit destination, very easy by bus. It is cold, but this just adds to the atmosphere. I would bring tissues. It brings the occupation / WW2 very into the present and makes you think what would you do?

The Jersey War Tunnels are a definite must-see experience. The whole tour takes about two hours and, as others have commented, you should bring extra clothing even on a hot day as it will be cooler inside. Parking is free and near to the entrance...More

The War Tunnels have changed considerably since we last went years ago and there are far more displays than there were then which have obviously been put together with much thought. The tunnels tell the story of the German occupation during the war years and...More

It's a must see place to go and experience what those times were like during the war for everyone on the island. Both occupiers and islanders alike. Take your time and soak up the history.

Apart from St Bralades bay this is the best must see on the island. Really informative for all ages and nationalities. Dont know why but was surprised to see some German visitors really interested in it. Not as cold as some reviews so don't worry...More

If you have, even, a passing interest in the history of the German occupation of the Channel Islands, this is the place to come. The old German underground hospital has been converted into a splendid museum telling the chronological story from just before the occupation...More

Definately worth the £12.00. You could spend a full morning here if you take your time.

Take the vintage bus from St Helier, I think it was £6 return and it'll drop you at the door. Can't remember admission fee but it wasn't much and well worth it.

It all depends on you, and the people you are with, because you may look at things for longer- but overall 2-2 1/2 hours is usually how long it would take. It is a very good day out :)
