Welcome to the Curiously Brit…(ish) island of Jersey. A place that’s familiar, with a delightfully continental twist.
Jump on a short flight from over 20 UK airports, or hop on the ferry, and you could be here in time for golden hour in the sunniest spot in the British Isles.
And the good news is that you don’t need a passport – photo ID will do.
What does freedom mean to you.
This May, our curiously Brit…(ish) little isle celebrates yet another year of freedom from the German Occupation.
We’ve been reflecting on what the word ‘freedom’ truly means and caught up with some local, friendly faces to find out what freedom means to them as an islander and how they can find it within 9 by 5 miles.
Their answers were nothing short of inspiring.
