We had a great time visiting the underground hospital. However, it could be improved by adding more information as you go around. It is a little cold but that just adds to the eeriness of the place. My main problem was the man working on...More

We were really looking forward to going to this. Touted as the biggest remaining German structure anywhere on the Channel Islands, it sounded like something too good to miss. Firstly, its difficult to access via public transport, which is likely how most tourists would be...More

You don’t need long to visit the underground hospital, but it gives a good impression of what it must have been like to have been forced to build it. By good, I mean you can sense how awful it must have been. It’s dark, cold...More

Worth the short trip from St Peter Port. New management is improving the visitor experience. Vast complex, very atmospheric and quite different to a lot of the other bunker complexes in the Channel Islands. Good value. Cool if somewhat damp!

It is a massive series of underground tunnels built with slave labour. There are only a few artefacts to view, but the atmosphere in awesome.

I picked this attraction, and it delivered. It’s very damp, not full of stuff as other museums, but, it’s an eerie reminder that the Channel Islands where actually occupied for 5 years. The Occupation Museum above ground does show this but, there’s something about the...More

The Underground Military Hospital and Ammunition Store is the largest structural reminder of the German Occupation of the Channel Islands. The entrance charge is £4 for adults which enables you to walk along many of the huge tunnels and view mostly empty rooms which comprised,...More

This was my 3rd attempt to visit this place. I’d been told by people not to bother as it’s a grim reminder of the war. I chose to ignore the comments as I believe in making your own opinion. It was very cheap (£4). Dark,...More
