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.

My last visit to the tunnels was 22 years ago. I found it much less distressing than it was then. I feel that mist of the information was relevant to Jersey but not especially to the tunnels. It was more factual and less accusatory. A...More

The War Tunnels tell the story of the island's resistance during WW2. There is a lot of walking and queuing to see some of the exhibits, especially at the beginning of the tour. I did not pay for an information booklet nor for the headphones...More
