Jersey War Tunnels
Heritage, Cultural Organisations
More than a kilometre of underground tunnels constructed during the Occupation have been transformed into a series of galleries exploring some of the ambiguities of Jersey’s wartime experience from resistance, through to near starvation, and eventual liberation.
The tunnels were constructed from late 1941 by forced and slave workers, and remained unfinished at the conclusion of hostilities. In 1943 parts were converted into a hospital in preparation for an Allied invasion which never came. Today the story is vividly told in the underground complex.
