The sun-kissed Channel Isle
OFFER ENDS 31st JULY*
Glorious Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, boasts superb beaches, a delightful bustling capital, and gorgeous scenery. Choose from a range of excellent hotels in St Helier, visit the War Tunnels, and perhaps join us for a taste of local produce on an optional food-lover's tour.
Fly from your chosen airport to Jersey, meet your tour manager and transfer the short distance to your chosen hotel. The rest of the day is free to get to know the bustling island capital, with its colourful port and maritime feel, its cafes, bars, restaurants and 'tax-free' shops and stores. On fine days, take in the waterfront, harbour or one of the fine beaches, and don't miss Elizabeth Castle, one-time home to Sir Walter Raleigh, the fascinating Maritime Museum or Jersey Museum, both tracing the island's history. Our friendly tour manager will be on hand to point you in the right direction and to help you make the very most of your time with us.
Discover the island, its scenic countryside and fascinating history on our included guided tour, which 'circumnavigates' the beautiful coastline, from sweeping St Aubin's Bay to La Corbiere and its lighthouse; on to St Ouen's Bay, past the rugged cliffs of the north coast and on to 600-year-old Mont Orgueil, one of Britain's best-preserved castles, towering over Gorey Harbour and the Royal Bay of Grouville. Enjoy plenty of 'photo-stops' and time for lunch, payable locally, before returning to St Helier in the afternoon.
Today's fascinating included excursion gives you the chance to explore the extraordinary Jersey War Tunnels, a vast underground city of excavations built at enormous human cost by the German occupiers in WWII. Originally a barracks, the tunnels were converted into a hospital in 1944, and though never used as such, they are preserved as a reminder of the pain of the war for the islanders.
Rest and relax, and join today's half-day not-to-be-missed optional excursion to the famous 'Jersey Zoo' - more correctly, the 'Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust' - as it continues the work begun by its founder, author and naturalist Gerald Durrell. It's a fascinating and inspiring visit with a difference, as en route aboard the 'Durrell Shuttle' you learn about its history against a soundtrack of its animal inhabitants. Back in St Helier, there is plenty to do - whether it's relaxing with a good book in the hotel lounge or in a sunny corner, doing something more energetic - the island is famous for its 'Green Lanes' where cycling on a rented bicycle is a real pleasure - while for the adventurous there's always the joys of an offshore fishing trip to savour.
A last optional excursion is the appropriately named 'Taste of Jersey' tour, which includes visits to island's 'La Mare' vineyard, where you will sample Jersey wines, chocolate and famous 'black butter. The tour, which includes a stop for lunch (payable locally), also includes a visit to beautiful Portelet Bay and St Brelade's exquisite Fishermen's Chapel.
After a last opportunity for an early morning stroll, transfer to the airport for the return flight, at the end of a wonderful Jersey holiday.
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately fifteen minutes.
Hotel transfer times
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
