Jersey's Heroes, Myths and Legends in the North

This drive or cycle around the North of the island incorporates some optional walks along the cliff paths and takes you to some dramatic coastal headlands and small fishing harbours, before heading inland through the small country lanes. It could also incorporate a visit to either Durrell Wildlife Park or The Eric Young Orchid Foundation, each place deserves a few hours of your time.

Jersey's Heroes, Myths and Legends in the South

This tour takes you from Le Dicq Slipway to the east of the town through to St. Aubin’s, up to Noirmont headland and then inland to the German War Tunnels and back into St. Helier. Although only about one hour driving, there are many places to stop and explore en route. With a stop at the War Tunnels and St. Matthew’s Glass Church it could take the whole day.

Take the Eastern Trial

Jersey's Heroes, Myths and Legends in the East

The eastern trail takes you from the eastern suburbs of St. Helier, along the coast towards the small harbour of Gorey and its iconic castle. It then goes to St. Catherine’s and La Hougue Bie. This trail can be completed in half a day, but if you wish to visit La Hougue Bie, Mont Orgueil Castle and Samarès Manor it would probably take a full day

West is Best

Jersey's Heroes, Myths and Legends in the West

This two-hour tour of the west will take you from St. Brelade’s Bay, along the west coast and back through the countryside to finish in St. Peter.
