Welcome
Whatever your reason for visiting; relax, re-charge, discover.

to island life

We locals live life with gusto – the essence of joie de vivre has woven its way through the indomitable British spirit and 800 years of independence to form an island with a character all its own. Fascinating and uniquely Jersey, our long association with France and Britain have moulded the landscape, people, history and culture. Discover rugged coastline, towering cliffs and sandy beaches teeming with flora and fauna – all just a stone’s throw from the lush rural interior where our world-class produce is lovingly nurtured before finding its way to your plate. Be it Michelin-starred dining or a fresh crab sandwich at one of our typical beach cafés, every mouthful bursts with flavour and freshness. Neolithic stones older than the pyramids stand shoulder to shoulder with Medieval castles and the imposing reminders of our recent history. Present day St Helier is a thriving and cosmopolitan hub offering all of the cutting-edge pleasures of short-break luxury. And, just to add to your agenda, each year a wealth of festivals and events take place, celebrating every aspect of what makes Jersey so special.

What’s on diary –
October marks the true start of autumn in the Island and is a month brimming with festivals. The mild days of September give way to the earthy smells and rustic pursuits of the tenth month. The hedgerows are edged with fallen leaves of oranges and gold and the red squirrels dart through the woods collecting precious stores for the winter ahead. It’s a time of year when food is all important in Jersey and its rich traditions are just waiting to be discovered. Enjoy La Faisie d’Cidre and Black Butter Making at The Elms; two weekend festivals where you can join locals in the age-old practices of cider making and the production of Jersey’s richly spiced, apple-based preserve, Black Butter. These events take place in the midst of centuries-old National Trust farms and, if you’re good at peeling apples, you might find yourself the guest of honour! As the evenings draw in, find a cosy restaurant and sample the delights of Tennerfest, an established festival which sees dozens of the Island’s eateries offering sumptuous menus from just £10!

What’s on diary –
As November sets in, the trees lose the last of their leaves and the familiar smell of wood smoke drifts from the chimneys of Jersey’s granite farmhouses. It’s a time to wrap up and discover the Island’s natural beauty on a hearty walk in the low afternoon sunshine. Surely the best way to reward yourself after a brisk autumnal stroll is with a warming lunch in front of the roaring fire of one of Jersey’s traditional, centuries-old pubs. The annual Tennerfest food festival continues through October until the middle of November, offering mouth-watering menus from just £10 at many of the Island’s superb choice of restaurants. It’s also a wonderful season to peruse the many rustic farm shops, bursting with the first of the local winter vegetables. There are also Jersey Farm and Craft Markets on St Aubin’s quayside; here you will find stunning, hand-made souvenirs, delightful jams and fudge and top-quality local produce.

These magnificent sites are; the south-east coast of Jersey, Les Minquiers, Les Écréhous and Les Dirouilles, and Les Pierres de Lecq (The Paternosters). These sites are truly unique and well worth a visit; however, three of these sites are offshore reefs and require a trip by boat. Check out the “Activities” section for operators who can take you on a short boat trip to see these sites. The south coast area can be walked around and guided walks are available (contact Jersey Walk Adventures – see “Activities”). Important! If

Jersey War Tunnels
Since Jersey was liberated from German Occupation over 60 years ago, one major tourist attraction will ensure that this dark period in Jersey’s history is never forgotten.
Jersey War Tunnels is a permanent reminder of the German Occupation of Jersey, which lasted almost five years until the island’s liberation on 9 May 1945. The tunnel complex formerly known as Höhlgangsanlage 8 (Ho8), which is broadly translated as ‘cave-passage-installation’, now plays host to a series of galleries detailing Occupation history through the diverse experiences of those who lived through it. Visitors will be led through the events of evacuation, deportation, captivity and siege, to eventual liberation. The tunnel complex of Ho8, which took almost three years to build, was designed as an armaments workshop and bombproof barracks. It was excavated by forced and slave labourers from all over Europe, some of whom died from the terrible hardship they were made to endure. Towards the end of 1943, amid fears of an inevitable Allied invasion of Europe, Ho8 was converted into a casualty receiving station or underground hospital; its rooms were transformed into wards to accommodate up to 500 casualties and included a fully equipped operating theatre. The invasion never occurred, so the tunnel complex failed to fulfil its final purpose. The permanent ‘Captive Island’ exhibition combines audio-visual testimony and archive imagery with hands-on activities and Occupation collections, fascinating for adults and children alike. The exhibition endeavours to place the visitor in the Islanders shoes, encouraging them to consider how they would have reacted under the same circumstances. Above the tunnel complex, the evocative landscape of the Garden of Reflection is a permanent reminder of the Jersey men and women who died as a direct consequence of the Occupation; each person is commemorated by a steel plaque set into the lawns and flower-beds. There are further steel plates containing thought provoking facts about the devastating effect conflict can have on human lives. Adjacent to Ho8 is the War Trail, a series of pathways through an anti-aircraft battery which was strategically located to protect the eastern approach to the airport. Visitors may walk amongst the crawl trenches, troop shelters and gun positions that formed the perimeter defences of this unique site. The Garden of Reflection, War Trail and Research facilities are free to visit along with the Visitor Centre, which contains the Shop and the Café. The latest addition to the site is a sculpture by internationally renowned artist, Paul de Monchaux. Entitled ‘Silence’ it has been commissioned to commemorate the suffering endured by forced and slave labourers who worked on the construction of the Ho8 complex. Inaugurated in 2007, it is a powerful reminder of the German Occupation of Jersey. Throughout the year staff offer free introductory talks detailing the history of Ho8 in the context of the German fortification programme and broader European events. New for 2009 are the interactive audio guide tours, the first of their kind in Jersey. The key feature of the handheld audio devices, which are available in English, French and German, are the interactive buttons that allow users to make a series of ethical judgments as they walk around. Visitors will be asked to put themselves in the shoes of those Occupied and make a number of life changing
