Jersey War Tunnels - German Underground Hospital, St. Lawrence

Opened to the public in 1946 and subsequently restored, Jersey War Tunnels - German Underground Hospital encompasses an underground network of tunnels, fortifications, and military installations built by the Nazis in the 1940s. Intended to serve as part of the Nazi defense of the island, part of this particular set of fortifications were set aside to become an emergency hospital. In 2001, a permanent exhibit was unveiled and serves to illustrate the daily life of Jersey’s citizens before, during, and after the occupation.

    A thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating walk back in time through Jersey's harsh treatment by the Nazis and neglect from the mother country!  more »

    An exciting tour on the life of Jersey under Occupation. An excellent set design within these tunnels, interactivity, the frescoes and the impressive stagings. A lighthouse tour to do, absolutely, if you spend a few days in Jersey. Wrap up warm, it's cold in the tunnel, and the tour takes about two hours.

  • Amazing place, so much to see and learn. Lovely coffee shop and souvenirs. Well worth a visit.
  • Fantastic tour and insight into life under occupation, the stories of the islanders and how everything was dealt with still important today. Very little to occupy children though, unless they are history fiends your going to be touring at a run to get it over with..
  • I thought it was good. Gave a good.wxperience on what it would of bbwn like then and has gave me a completely different view on the war. Gets a bit boring after a while and is quite expensive.
  • Excellent insight into the history of Jersy and the occupation from German forces during WW2. A must for anyone who likes Historical places
  • Very interesting place. Built by P.O.W.'s during the occupation. Not what I would call value for money though...
