Port of Jersey

About Jersey, Guide and Tourist Attractions
(Jersey, Channel Islands, UK)

Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and is a UK protectorate. The island is located closer to the coast of France than that of the UK and offers tourists warm summers, unspoilt beaches and tax-free shopping.

St. Helier is the capital, commercial and historical heart of Jersey and offers the bulk of the shopping and nightlife.

What to do in Jersey

There are plenty of things to do on Jersey; if you are here in the summer, clean, sandy beaches surround the island and present the greatest allure. There is a plethora of seemingly deserted bays and numerous historical attractions are scattered about the countryside. In addition, St Helier puts on an array of colourful festivals and events throughout the year, including the infamous Jersey Food Festival.

Tourist Attractions

The majority of the tourist attractions can be found in St Helier, which itself resides on the pretty St Aubin's Bay. Here you will find several top class museums, the popular Jersey Zoo, and the lively Howard Davies Park. St Helier also offers the best shopping and nightlife on Jersey, with a variety of tax-free shops and boutiques, several cinemas and theatres, and dozens of lively pubs, bars and nightclubs.

Elsewhere on the island, history lovers will be delighted with the Neolithic burial mounds that can be found across the island; the 16th century Elizabeth castle, a defence during WWII, with its cliff-top location; the German Underground Hospital, and the WWII bunkers. If you are into walking, the rugged northern part of Jersey has miles of walking and hiking tracks and you can find out more at the tourist information office in St Helier.
