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.

Made our own independent way to the attraction vis the bus system. Frequent timetable. Fascinating walk through the tunnels. Attraction very well presented. Nice café to visit after your experience. Allow 1.5 hours for your visit.

Although it was an obvious attraction to visit, I had not realised quite how much is there. Apart from the tunnels themselves, the exhibition covering the German Occupation, set up within the tunnels, is extremely informative and well thought out. Although we managed to arrive...More

We appreciate your positive comments about our displays and cafe. The Tunnels aren't suitable for very young children, while children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. As the Tunnels are underground, warm clothing can help if you feel the cold. Thank you again...More

Whether you are interested in war stuff or not this place is an insight into what happened to the people from Jersey and the poor workers forced to dig the tunnels. It was humbling. From start to finish the displays are well set out and...More

The Jersey War Tunnels is a great place for anyone who likes world war II. It is a amazing but scary place to be and the caves and mines are creepy.

The Tunnels can be very atmospheric and we aim to set out the history from the Occupation of Jersey. The attraction isn't suitable for very young children or adults with a nervous disposition. Will

Their website shows open 1st March to 31st October Monday to Sunday from 10 to 6 (last entry to main exhibition at 4.30). Suggest you arrive early in day if by car - free car park can get very full.
