An unusual and interesting place to visit

You need to get the key from the Wildlife Trust in town. It is great for kids and adults alike. A relic of War.

Quit a view. The unusual and imposing facade manages to be a somewhat attractive design. It almost looks deliberately Art Deco.

During our last visit to Alderney in July we managed to borrow the key from the Wild Life Trust shop on Victoria Street in the main town, to open up and go inside The Odeon. What a great experience climbing up to the top and looking out over the coast line as the occupying soldiers would have done during the... More

The Odeon is an imposing and sinister looking building, made even more so when you read about the history. At the time of our visit, the door was unlocked so we were lucky enough to walk round inside and get a more complete experience. It's a lot smaller inside than you'd think. As ever when exploring these old buildings, take... More

On one of the highest points on the island, it stands out. There are many WWII site on Alderney but this is a little different. Make sure you get a key from the Wildlife Trust in St Anne.

We visited Alderney last week, the weather was lovely so the views from The Odeon were stunning, you have to collect the key from the wildlife shop in St Anne's.

Don't go with children. Near a frightening cliff surrounded by v dangerous overgrown bunkers. Great place to visit especially for bird photos as you are above them. The gorse has got some good birds and you can get close to them. Kestrels, sparrow hawks, hobbies all seen above. Remote chance of Dartford Warbler and Red Footed Falcon. Gyr, Bonnellis and... More

There are an extraordinary number of Second World War fortifications on Alderney and this is one of the most commanding and sinister looking. There are great views from the site and it is surrounded by spectacular countryside with many interesting and rare plants growing which in turn support much wildlife.

This is one hell of a building. I thought it was very spooky and would not like to visit at night time!
