Amazing castle, so much to see and do and explore. Love to walk out to the castle when the tide is out as a really enjoyable walk but even more exciting to travel on the 'Duck' ferry boat. An amphibious boat which is a great experience

An interesting place to sample Jersey's history. You can chose to walk to the castle at low tide or take the "duck" truck irrespective of the tide. If you can, make sure you walk at least one way - it gives you a real appreciation for the castle and it's importance to the island. The castle has been heavily modified... More

As a family we have visited many castles, this isn't a 'Wow' one and we felt it looked more impressive from a distance. As we were there near the end of the last day of the season it was clear they were ready to close and we missed the cannon firing and any guided tours which was a shame. However,... More

Depending on the tide one can get the Duck or walk across both equally enjoyable Good if you like military history And the views of St Helier are well worth it

We loved our time at the castle. We got the bus ferry over, although you can walk for less. It's a big place with lots to walk around and look at... Bigger than it looks. There was a gun demonstration and canon demo whilst we were there which was great and very fasinating. There's little gift shop which is nice,... More

although you can walk to the castle at low tide, the tide was against us so we took the ''duck bus'' which was great fun, the children enjoyed exploring the castle and the views are fantastic how ever we did find the historical talk by a costumed guide difficult to hear and a bit long winded.

I didn't manage to get to the castle because low tide was 5am and 5pm- by 5pm it was dark and I didn't fancy walking over to the castle in the dark- but it was lovely to see from the beach and marina, I would visit in the morning and evening to see it lit up and in natural light!
