The Channel islands are great places to explore and with such an array of attractions there is sure to be something for everyone. We have created a list of some of the attractions that we think would be great to add to your Guernsey or Jersey holiday experience and make for the perfect photo opportunity as shown in these Instagram posts.

Jersey Attractions

This picture was taken by Jersey Seafaris and it shows the glorious weather in Jersey. Take a boat ride with them and you may be lucky enough to see the Channel Islands marine wildlife including Dolphins!

Did you know that Jersey War Tunnels runs over 1km in length and was built by forced labour under German command during the Jersey Occupation? These tunnels bore witness to the cruelty of the Nazi regime and are now home to a series of thought provoking galleries, dioramas and interactive exhibitions. The unfinished tunnels are particularly poignant reminder of the suffering faced by forced labourers who built the tunnels under German command. The original operating theatre, boiler room, telephone exchange and Storemanís office are also preserved. The inimitable feel of the tunnels remains, but within the galleries - each dedicated to a different chapter of the period - there is light, colour and sound. The Tunnels offer an experience that aims to tell the whole story of the German Occupation of Jersey in the words and phrases of the people who were there. To view the map and details of each exhibition, simply follow this link: https://www.jerseywartunnels.com/explore-history/ _________________________________ #JerseyWarTunnels #JerseyOccupation #WorldWarTwo #GermanOccupation #UnfinishedTunnels #Occupation #WarTime #LifeDuringTheWar #Veteran #History #IslandHistory #JerseyHistory #JerseyCI #VisitJerseyCI #JerseyChannelIslands
