With its unique Anglo-French cultural blend, the enchanting island of Jersey offers a taste of the Continent but closer to home. Small on size but big on personality, the island’s country lanes open to cliff top views and the sea is never more than ten minutes away. An island of rediscovery, packed with activities to experience and explore, all within a mere 46 square miles.
Historically attractive to invading armies because of its strategic position between England and France, Jersey has been fought over throughout history. Surviving remains of its chequered history have become fascinating visitor attractions, from the forbidding-looking Mont Orgueil Castle to the Jersey War Tunnels.
Today, it is the island’s abundance of natural beauty and mild, sunny climate which makes it so appealing, from the rugged cliffs of the north down to the long, sandy beaches of the south. Gerald Durrell’s zoological park and the charming Shell Garden in St Aubin are just some of the myriad attractions found on the island.
