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.

Would 100% recommend seeing this. It can be quite eerie if experiencing it for the first time but it’s a great way to understand the history of Jersey during the occupation.

A very professional & comprehensive display of the life for the islanders & workers during the occupation. A dreadful time brought back sensitively & it even challenged visitors to think about the motives of informants

Well worth a visit. Buses run frequently from St Helier. There is a lot of walking but one can sit down here and there. It is an experience not to be missed and makes one understand what the Island went through during the war.

We visited the tunnels over 40years ago and they have been very sensitively developed in the interim. They provide a time for reflection about the human cost of war.
