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.

It is a very sad indictment of how humans can be so cruel and to visit the underground Nazi hospital highlights this very fact. Slaves were used to dig these tunnels, working 12 hour shifts, starved and beaten. Islanders betrayed their neighbours, often for little to no reason at all. People died during this 5 year occupation. Do go and... More

Explored all there was to see. Lots of History - which was education for the kids - And really tells the story of how things were during the 2nd world War in the Channel Islands. You also get to see some of the incomplete tunnels. Dress warm as it gets a bit chilly. Well worth it.

We had the same idea as lots of other tourists on this cold and wet day and that was the problem. The place has been badly planned with frustrating bottle necks which caused big delays. What's needed is a better system so if you aren't the type of person who wants to read every word you can get past. Ended... More

Second visit in two years (this time with my wife) and I'm pleased to see they have improved and extended the experience. I don't want to give too much away but would highly recommend this visit to anyone visiting Jersey - very poignant in places ... takes about 90-120 minutes to walk around

First visited after the war when it was just a wet and deserted, locally called the German Under Ground Hospital! As a child when playing there, we knew nothing of it's sinister history, just a good place to hide prior to visiting the 'Strawberry & Cream Bar' our holiday highlight!!
