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.

This is a poignant and important reminder of life on Jersey during the occupation. Inside it is quite cold which adds to the experience and highlights the suffering of the islanders and the prisoners of war who were forced to dig the tunnels. A lesson of history and the day to day sacrifice of individual islanders.

The tunnels are obviously for tourism , but the history and information is real. The German occupation had the locals and prisoners suffering in different ways. Well done to the locals during the war, let us be thankful it is still free.!

A very nice place to visit, very interesting and full of facts and information about the war, the whole place is very well laid out with easy access for all, and definitely worth visiting for the price of the ticket.

A perfect insight into the tribulations and hardships of Islanders who lived through 5 years pf Nazi occupation. Follow the story from 1940 to Liberation on 9th May 1945, it is so realistic and thought provoking.

This is the most amazing place and is so informative. I had no idea just how hard the islanders had it during the war, and the stories to be told were truly amazing. If you don't do anything else, please go here and see for yourself.

One of the most fascinating museums I have ever visited. Very well thought out exhibitions gave a real sense of what it must have been like during the war. I really didn't know very much about the tunnels before, or even the history of the occupation. Allow plenty of time, as there's a lot of walking and a lot to... More

Any visit to Jersey should include a visit to the tunnels. There is nowhere like it in the British Isles. Fascinating, moving and informative it's the sort of historical place that deserves respect in terms of what happened inJersey inWW2

Filled with history these tunnels are a great place to visit. Allow half a day to take it all in as there is a lot of reading - but worth it! It is set out really well in a time line and gives a good account of what the islanders went through during the occupation. After seeing it, would you... More
