Welcome to the Curiously Brit…(ish) island of Jersey. A place that’s familiar, with a delightfully continental twist.
Jump on a short flight, or hop on the ferry, and you could be here in time for golden hour in the sunniest spot in the British Isles.
Jersey’s not quite British, we’re Brit...(ish).
We’re inviting you to tuck into woodfired pizzas from a tropical beach shack just steps away from the shoreline then paddle out into the shimmering blue waters. Hear tales of Kings in exile, swashbuckling pirates and cannon fire that echoes Elizabeth Castle’s 1,500 year history across St. Aubin’s bay. Walk out to historic Seymour Tower across the seabed at low tide and bag yourself a night in perfect seclusion. Jersey’s not quite British, we’re Brit…(ish). A place where you’ll feel truly on holiday.
