Welcome to the Curiously Brit…(ish) island of Jersey. A place that’s familiar, yet ever so slightly exotic. 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.

Jersey’s not quite British, we’re Brit…(ish). A place where you’ll feel you’re truly on holiday.

Trips to the Brit...(ish) seaside.

If you’re looking for reassuringly soggy British weather, we’re sorry to break the news that Jersey is the sunniest spot in the British Isles, but if you want wet weekends, we’re surrounded by the stuff. 24 pristine bays in fact, washed clean by the biggest tide in Europe. Tuck into a slice of paradise at Portelet Bay where wood-fired pizzas are the order of the day, served up from a beach shack just steps from the shoreline. We love long car journeys as much as you do, so buckle up for a ten minute slog to the sea in any direction. And we know it wouldn’t be a British summer without jostling for towel space on a bustling beach. We’re sorry to disappoint, as we’re still working on the crowds to fill our wide open beaches with soft sands and crystal clear waters. In the meantime, we hope you won’t mind the odd bottle-nosed dolphin for company?

A curiously Brit...(ish) history.

History is very much alive in Jersey, but it’s not quite 1066 and all that. 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. We’ve knitted Jersey jumpers on the backs of fishermen who sailed to the new world and created some of the British Isles’ earliest art. And ancient castles? We’ve got three that we built earlier… a few centuries earlier that is and they’re big enough to dwarf our epic coastline, but you get the picture. We’re as British as it gets for a crown dependency.

Savour Great Brit...(ish) flavours.

Nope, there’s nothing exotic around here. Just good old fashioned British fayre. If by fish and chips you mean freshly caught lobsters served with buttery Jersey Royals, served up in the sunniest ‘plaice’ in the British Isles. To those who say we’re so close to France, we’re practically singing Les Marseillaise, we challenge them to try plump Jersey strawberries with clotted Jersey cream. Jersey packs a rich and colourful larder into its nine by five food miles. Peckish travellers will find farm stalls, food markets and beach restaurants bursting with unique Jersey produce, from famous Jersey Dairy to fresh oysters washed clean by the biggest tidal range in Europe. What greater pleasure could there be than rocking up to a laid back coastal restaurant in ten minutes and tucking into freshly picked crab plucked from the sea that very morning? Just pack a healthy appetite and a phone camera and you’ll live snappily ever after.

A Spot of Brit...(ish) culture.

Jersey has a unique feel about it. We have our own peculiar customs, laws, and traditions. True, we speak the King’s English and you’ll find a Jersey cream tearoom on a leafy country lane, but just when you think you’re back in Blighty, you’ll find yourself lost on lanes that lead to breathtaking views over nearby France or sipping on Aperol at al fresco bars that wouldn’t look out of place in an Italian piazza. And in that charming way we have to confuse and confound, we even have our own language – Jèrriais. Wander a little off the beaten path and you’ll encounter a friendly fisherman who wishes you ‘Séyiz les beinv’nu’ (Welcome to Jersey) and spins you a yarn over a pint of Jersey Liberation Ale.

The Great Brit...(ish) outdoors.

There’s nothing more British than stretching your legs in the bracing sea air. And we have over 48 miles of dramatic coastline to do the job. You’ll discover a breathtaking and storied landscape, where tidal lunar landscapes and wooded lanes meet sheltered bays in the south coast, while craggy coastlines merge with the drama of the Atlantic Ocean as you climb to the island’s northern heights where you can almost reach out and touch France. As you cruise along Jersey’s longest coastal highway, the five mile road, you’ll take in sweeping sand dunes and grasslands teeming with wildlife, where the Atlantic surf washes up against miles of unspoiled beaches. Where else in Britain can you catch a spectacular sunrise in the east, enjoy a delicious seafood picnic on an otherworldly offshore reef, before watching the sun sink slowly over western shores, all in one glorious day? Nowhere, that’s where.
