There’s never been a better time to rediscover Jersey. Easily accessible and within sight of the French coastline, Jersey offers a unique blend of continental and British influences, history and culture, world-renowned attractions, and outstanding local food. 2015 will be a year of celebration as the Channel Islands celebrate the 70th anniversary of liberation; whilst the biennial Island Games taking place in June and July will see over 3,000 competitors bring the island to life in a blaze of sports and activities.
The Channel Islands Heritage Festival, taking place during April and May, will feature a fantastic selection of events, activities and exhibitions across Jersey and Guernsey. The festival will include the islands’ annual Liberation Day as well as walks, cycling tours and displays in the island’s museums. This is a perfect opportunity to enjoy a short break in the island whilst soaking up the history that makes Jersey what it is.
From the past to the present, Jersey is now very much a destination for foodies. With four Michelin stars within 45 square miles and a wealth of local ingredients and fresh seafood, there aren’t many better gastronomic destinations so close to the UK. Those wanting to experience some luxury whilst on holiday can indulge in the Jersey Luxury Michelin Experience, with three meals in three Michelin-starred restaurants included.
If you’re looking to stay active rather than sit in award-winning restaurants, you’re in luck. Jersey’s attractions and sights include the world-famous Durrell Wildlife Park, the exceptional Jersey War Tunnels, and an assortment of heritage sites including castles, forts, country life museums and coastal towers.
The island’s hotels and accommodation range from traditional value hotels to luxury spa hotels and an outstanding five star leisure resort. Les Ormes Leisure Resort offers a fantastic experience for couples and families alike, featuring a collection of self catering lodges, apartments and houses, all centred around a nine hole golf course and activity centre. The delights of Jersey’s west coast beaches are less than five minutes away.
Visitors can travel to Jersey from regional airports across the UK, with up to 30 routes available throughout the summer months. For those wanting to enjoy an independent break with their own car, ferry travel on a brand new 102-metre vessel is available from the south coast of England.
