Jersey War Tunnels
Dug deep into the hillside within St Peter's Valley, the Tunnels were originally intended to be a barracks and ammunition store for the occupying forces. Today they tell the story of the Occupation, looking at how all sides coped under such extreme conditions and examining the daily dilemmas that were faced by island residents and the authorities, whether Jersey, British or German. Significant stuff, best for over 7s.
Outside the Tunnels, you can enjoy quiet moments in the Garden of Reflection or a woodland walk along the historic War Trail. The theme of a Captive Island is thought provoking without going into upsetting detail out here, so it's an excellent place to distract the sensitive sorts while the other half of the groups gets the harder nosed educational detail inside.
Cafe and pertinent book shop also available to help you mull over what you've learned!
