About La Hougue Bie

Hidden in Jersey’s eastern countryside is La Hougue Bie Museum, one of Europe’s finest prehistoric monuments. At the heart of the tranquil site stands a medieval church atop a prehistoric mound and dolmen, under which lies a 6,000-year-old Neolithic passage grave. Unlike many other dolmens you can actually stand inside the chamber and discover the heart of this place of worship.

There is a fascinating geology and archaeology museum on site which contains coin hoards, axes, swords and spears belonging to Jersey’s Neolithic community. La Hougue Bie is also home to a command bunker built during the German Occupation of Jersey and a memorial dedicated to the slave-workers brought to the Channel Islands by invading Nazi forces during the Second World War.

There is a large picnic area where you can enjoy a day out amongst the beautiful surroundings of this peaceful and spiritual site.
