    Jersey

    Major Tourist Attractions: Durrell Wildlife, Park, Mont Orgueil, Jersey Heritage, Victoria College, Elizabeth Castle

    Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and a visit can be easily incorporated into a European trip due to its accessibility from both England and France.

    Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and can be found close to British and French shores. Jersey is English speaking and uses British currency. It is an intriguing island to explore from seaside towns brimming with English charm, to rolling green hills, great for countryside walks. For such a small island there is plenty to do including water sports, shopping in St. Helier, golf and horse riding.

    Jersey has many French influences; including its traditional language Jerez. Although not widely spoken now it is part of Jersey’s heritage and was derived from the French language.

    The island is famous for its cows that produce deliciously creamy milk along with Jersey Royal potatoes, perfect simply boiled and then eaten with a knob of butter.

    Jersey is unique as it can be easily incorporated into a European trip due to its accessibility from both England and France. Although only nine miles in length, Jersey has a good variety of accommodation to choose from including glamping sites, beach hotels, self-catering cottages and guesthouses.

    Here are some more ideas of how to spend your time in the Channel Islands:

    • Learn to Surf at St. Ouen’s Bay.
    • Eat seafood at one of St. Helier’s chic seafood restaurants, perfect for al fresco dining.
    • Visit the Jersey Museum and learn about the history of the island.
    • Take a ride on Le Petit train from St. Helier to the quaint fishing village of St. Aubin. The mini locomotive goes all the way along the sea front.
    • Build sand castles and eat Jersey ice cream at St. Brelades Bay.
    • Immerse yourself in the history of the island with a trip to the Jersey War Tunnels or man the canons at Elizabeth Castle. Found on its own island the castle can be reached on foot a low tide or by amphibious vehicle at high tide.
    • If you find yourself on Jersey during August make sure you attend the Battle of Flowers, a colourful annual carnival with a moonlight parade.
    • Go on an organised Coasteering trip. It is an exhilarating way to explore the coastline by jumping from rocks into the ocean and clambering into caves all in the presence of an experienced tour guide.
