Medieval Castles & Battlefields Tour

Our Medieval Castles & Battlefields Tour explores the age of swords, bows and arrows when castle building demonstrated power. Jersey has two magnificent medieval castles, Gorey and Grosnez, albeit that the latter has been in ruins for the last 650 years! Battles were also brutal bloody affairs, and we will see as gunpowder and cannons entered the battlefield, the medieval period came to an end.

Duration: over 5 hrs

More Information

You will be guided across the island visiting a selection of sites from the Medieval Period. We hear how Jersey evolved as a Crown possession, with different laws, customs and privileges which grew into modern Jersey. We will visit castles, fortifications and battlefields.

This half day tour is available to book as a private group tour on any available day, all year around – please book online or contact us for further options.

* Highlights *

- Site of 1406 Battle of the Bridge (or Sands) – Hector de Pontbriand and Pero Nino against English and Jersey forces – one of the many battles of the Hundred Years War
- Parish Churches – (driving past)
- Mont Orgueil Castle – the unconquered castle (entry only on full day tours)
- Chastel Sedement, Trinity
- Jardin D’Olivet, 1549 battlefield site, Trinity
- Grosnez Castle siege in 1373 during Hundred Years War

History Alive’s tours are devised in a way to give our guests an overall and enjoyable experience which means that we won’t always follow the same route or stop at all the above highlights, although we will do our best to do so.

Without much documentary evidence from the medieval period, it’s history is a mix of legend, myth and known facts. Visit castles and battlefields, handle the weapons and solve the enigmas of this period.
