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.

Fascinating to walk through the tunnels and learn about their history. I liked the visitor participation with the posting of the letter, it was interesting to see which box (for or against) betraying friends & neighbours, the majority of them being against being disloyal.

Allow at least 1.5-2 hours for this tour. Lots of short information boards chronicling the experience of the local people recorded chronologically from rise of the Nazi's through to the liberation in 1945. Some excellent interactive components as well highlighting the plight of the prisoners...More

We visited during the morning but still warm clothing was needed for some parts of the tunnels. Very informative displays which took rather a long time to read, resulting in queues in some parts. Would recommend allowing about 2 hours to visit. A local bus...More

My husband and I visited here on our last trip to Jersey in 1986. I am pleased to say that it was well worth another visit 31 years later - a very moving and humbling experience. It is well organised and informative with good facilities.

Definately worth the £12.00. You could spend a full morning here if you take your time.

Take the vintage bus from St Helier, I think it was £6 return and it'll drop you at the door. Can't remember admission fee but it wasn't much and well worth it.

It all depends on you, and the people you are with, because you may look at things for longer- but overall 2-2 1/2 hours is usually how long it would take. It is a very good day out :)
