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.

We visited this many years ago when it was just a small area open to the public. It has been very much expanded and is well worth a visit. The story of the tunnels is well told and you can spend at least an hour,...More

Very well laid out and informative exhibition. Took us about 2 hours. Just the right amount of information. We were each given an identity card of a person involved in the story which gave an added dimension to looking around. Recommended.

You will be amazed how big this place is, very interesting. Probably one of the best and most visited attractions on the island. Easily accessible by bus, bus stop 50-100 yards away. Lovely cafe attached, had lunch here which was nice.

Really atmospheric and informative. Very moving I learnt so much and there were very few people there so had most of the exhibits to myself which could be a bit creepy especially standing in the tunnels still being dug that were just left.
