Finding Us & Access

German Naval Signals HQ is situated in St Jacques, St Peter Port, GY1 1SN.  It is next door to La Collinette Hotel.  

This site is a restoration of the original bunker, as such it is below ground with a narrow entry and steps. It is not wheelchair accessible.

Please note: there are no toilets or cafe at the German Signals HQ (but these are both available at Guernsey Museum at Candie, which is only a short walk away).

Parking is not available on site but nearby at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre or on road near Candie Gardens.

AccessAble have produced a detailed access guide to this site, which can be viewed here.

Assistance dogs are welcome at the GNSHQ, Guernsey Museum, Castle Cornet and Fort Grey. Pets are not permitted.

 

DID YOU KNOW? This underground network of rooms was restored by members of the Channel Islands Occupation Society and many of the original internal fittings have been retained.  These include the ventilation pumps, heating boiler and toilets (non-functioning). The rooms have been re-fitted and equipped to as near original condition as possible, based on detailed information supplied by the former Naval Signals Officer and other German personnel.
