Holidays to Jersey

Situated just 100 miles from Britain’s mainland, Jersey is the perfect compromise between holidaying abroad and something closer to home. The largest of the Channel Islands, it continues to be one of the most popular. Famous for its temperate climate and unspoiled landscape, you won’t help but feel a reassuring familiarity from this island.

Narrow country lanes, secluded woodlands and Norman-style townhouses evoke a perfect mix of French and British influences that give Jersey its unique charm. Whatever you’re looking for, Jersey holidays will not disappoint.

Be Beside the Seaside

Albeit a small island, Jersey has big choices when it comes to places to stay. Luxury 5-star hotels, B&Bs by the beachfront and boutique stays in the heart of the country are just some of our options. The old fishing village of St. Aubin has a distinctly quaint feel to it and is home to one of Jersey’s most beautiful harbours. For keen foodies, the small village of Gorey is an ideal spot for local cuisine – serving up everything from fresh seafood to famous Jersey cream teas. Surrounded by golden sands, Gorey is ideal for coastal walks that make it a hit with young families.

A Great Escape

Holidays to Jersey are great for those who crave variety. An endless amount of activities and amusements, there are a wealth of things to see and experience on the island. If you’re a self-confessed shopaholic, you’ll love visiting the medieval town of St Hellier. This busy capital boasts a combination of designer boutiques and high street names to please fashionistas. For food fans, the vibrant street market is a must-see, selling a great choice of local delicacies.

With its vast coastline, holidays in Jersey are great for those with a love for water sports. Boat trips, cruises and sailing can all be enjoyed and scuba-diving is incredibly popular. St Ouen’s Bay in particular is a great beach to visit for surfing enthusiasts. There are also a great variety of activities to experience on land. The rocky cliffs that inhabit the island are great for thrill-seekers who love to abseil or rock climb, whilst the path tracks are perfect for horse-riding.

For fun after dark, Jersey’s music scene is just the ticket. Many local venues host regular live music and the French influence is still apparent in many of the pubs and clubs.

Out and About in Jersey

Aside from sandy beaches, there are plenty of things to see and do on Jersey holidays. Durrell Wildlife Park is a popular attraction and particularly great for families. Featuring over 130 species, you’ll come face to face with some of the rarest animals on earth. The park’s collection of mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles will keep the little ones in your family entertained for hours.

If, however, you’d like to delve into Jersey’s history, a visit to the famous Jersey War Tunnels is a must. Stretching over one kilometre, these tunnels were originally designed by the German army to resist air raids in World War II. Take a glimpse at what life was like during the occupation of the island and explore the Woodland War Trail before enjoying a quiet moment in the Gardens of Reflection.
