The Occupation has left an extraordinary legacy on Jersey, with hundreds of concrete bunkers, walls and tunnels ringing the coast and scattering the island’s interior. Exploring, you will find most of these remarkable structures still in place, some preserved, most derelict. Collectively, they represent the finest range of World War Two fortifications found anywhere in the world. Explore relics of the past and discover the big story of our little rock.
After five years of occupation, liberation came to Jersey on 09 May 1945 – Liberation Day, an event still celebrated in Jersey with an annual bank holiday and festivities that mark this momentous occasion.
