The details below represent a small selection of places to visit whilst on the island. Visit the local Tourist Information Offices for more details and suggestions.
Jersey War Tunnels
is a permanent reminder of the German Occupation of Jersey, which lasted almost five years until the island’s liberation on 9th May 1945. The tunnel complex, formerly known as Höhlgangsanlage 8 (Ho8), now plays host to a series of galleries detailing Occupation history through the diverse experiences of those who lived through it. Visitors will be led through the events of evacuation, deportation, captivity and siege to eventual liberation.
Established by author Gerald Durrell, the zoo is world famous for its collection of rare animals, many free living in green open spaces and for its dedication to the preservation of species from extinction.
A chance to see the most beautiful and historical points of interest along this fabulous coastline.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: The Reciprocal Health Agreement between Jersey and the UK (effective from 1 April 2011) covers the cost of emergency treatment only (not repatriation). Therefore it is strongly recommended that adequate travel insurance is in place.
