The German Naval Signals Headquarters is a fascinating place to visit and often overlooked as it is tucked away on the outskirts of St Peter Port. Details of how to find it are here. One thing to note is that there is no onsite parking so you will need to park in one of the nearby disc parking zones.
It is well worth taking the time to go and take a look around. If you plan on visiting this and other sites looked after by Guernsey Museums I recommend you consider a Discovery Pass which allows unlimited visits to all of their museums for £20 per annum. Children under 18 accompanied by a pass holder also get free admission.
I was lucky enough to see it at various points during the restoration through to completion. The story of the bunker is fascinating as are the stories of those that manned it. There are a few photographs below to give you a taster. There is much more to see and learn when you visit.
