Overview
More
This was the headquarters of the German Naval Commander of the Channel Islands during WWII. The Signals HQ handled all the important radio signals traffic for the German Forces during the Occupation. The bunker complex was completed in 1944 and housed powerful communication equipment and Enigma enciphering machines. Over half the complex has been restored to its wartime appearance with original fixtures, fittings, objects and equipment.

From its defended approach and entrance to the explanations in each of the fascinating rooms, this museum is well worth a visit to see how signals traffic (important messages to you and me!) were handled. The bunker is in two parts; sadly, the half where...More

Wow! Well worth the entrance fee (£4). A very interesting place and worth the hassle trying to find it. It is not very big but it was the most important communications place for the Germans occupying the Channel Islands in WWII. Good introductory video sets...More

Not on main bus route but worth a walk to find this underground museum, run by volunteers who are friendly and know good history about the museum. There are stories about previous German soldiers who were based here during the invasion and the fact they...More

Wondering which occupation museum to visit? This one. It cost very little but thanks to the guided tour (and you need the tour, otherwise you could be in and out) it was fascinating, although you probably do need to have a passing interest in this...More

Hidden on the outskirts of St Peter Port the German Signals HQ is not the easiest place to find. However if interested in local history during the occupation 1940-45 make the effort and find this well preserved piece of history. Follow the signs from Candie...More

We visited almost by accident, because the Museum and Art gallery offered us a ticket covering multiple venues (worth knowing about if you plan to also visit the castle or Fort Grey). This museum proved one of the most interesting places during our Guernsey visit,...More
