4.7
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.

  • What a fantastic experience; every minute was well worth my time. I would definitely revisit the next time I come to Jersey. It's a really good rainy day activity but there are lovely surrounding gardens for those visiting on drier days. The tour was really informative. There were lots of artefacts, displays and information for all to access. It was clear that a lot of thought has gone into providing a good experience. Easy access for wheelchair users. The gift shop is lovely with a good selection of items to suit everyone; children's pocket money included. The restaurant's food was nice. I had some homemade soup with a cheese scone which was lovely. My only two comments for improvement with the restaurant is that they need menus so that people can browse at their leisure before making an order and the staff need uniforms. Some of the staff were a little scruffy. Other than that they were friendly and cleared the tables well.
  • Very well put together wartime museum in the well maintained and presented tunnels. Highly recommend. Wear warmer clothes (even on a hot day) it gets cold down there!!
  • Very evocative place, and a must see when visiting Jersey. That being said, it does get rather cold in there so even if its hot outside you will benefit from some form of coat or jumper whilst there since it's under ground! We took around an hour and a half to walk around, but could likely have spent a little more time in each part. Definitely recommended!
  • A lot went on here that you would never have been able to guess about in the war years. Fascinating.
  • Feels like watching a movie or reading a war novel in live. A well scripted screenplay. If you do not know the history - particularly the role this island played during world war II, you will know in details after visiting this place
