Add To Plan

Boarding your coach at the pier, you will be driven directly out to The German Underground Hospital which is situated deep within the Guernsey countryside. This underground complex is a series of tunnels commissioned by the German High Command, for use as a hospital, and dug painstakingly out of the hillside by Russian prisoners of war.

Exiting the tunnels, you'll re-board your coach for a drive along the west coast. Here, there is ample opportunity to view the many fortifications from both the Napoleonic era and the German Occupation, both profound legacies of Guernsey's turbulent past.

Arriving at the high cliff top of Pleinmont Point, there will be a short visit to La Batterie Dolman, a German gun emplacement with a firing range of over 25 miles.

Before concluding your tour, you will be driven to the German Occupation Museum, where the owner has reconstructed a German bunker complete with original equipment, a street circa 1940, and many other excellent displays and audio visual aids.

Following the stop at the museum, you will be transferred back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1 mile of walking - at times on uneven ground. There are some steps to be negotiated and it is not considered suitable for wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
