Jersey War Tunnels

About the War Tunnels

No holiday to Jersey is complete without a visit to the War Tunnels to learn about one of the most difficult periods in the Island’s history. The Jersey War Tunnels are no ordinary museum; they are an unforgettable and moving experience, serving as a permanent reminder of the German occupation of Jersey.

Formerly known as Höhlgangsanlage 8 (Ho8), the tunnel complex is dug deep into the hillside within St Peter’s Valley and was originally intended to be a barracks and ammunition store for the occupying forces. It took nearly three and a half years to build, with the work being carried out by forced and slave labourers who were brought to the Island from all over Europe.

Today, the War Tunnels tell the compelling story of life in Jersey under occupation and feature a series of thought-provoking galleries looking at the diverse experiences of all those who live through it, whether Jersey, British or German. Outside the Tunnels you can enjoy a quiet moment in the Garden of Reflection or a woodland walk along the historic War Trail.

At the end of your visit refresh yourself in the beautiful surroundings of the Museum’s bar and café, or visit the unique sweet shop. If you’d like to learn more about the Occupation of the Channel Islands there is an extensive range of books covering all aspects of the period in the Museum shop.
