A Brief History
The Jersey War Tunnels were built by slaves, under instruction from German soldiers who occupied Jersey during World War II.
Although they were never completed (or used for their intended purpose), there is a network of tunnels that stretch for more than 1,000 metres.
Now acting as a museum, the Jersey War Tunnels tell the story of the suffering and hardship that were endured at that time.
