Very interesting, my husband loved all he second world war connections. We don't usually like a guided tour but it made it all come alive!

Nice walk over to the Castle at low tide. Shame it's closed from 3rd November to next March. Looks nice though and you can walk round the outside.

I went on a horrible day (rain and strong winds), stung by a wasp and had to rush all the way round but totally loved this place - could have stayed all day!

A very interesting place with a wealth of history, the guide was excellent , giving a condensed history of Jersey from the civil war to present day. The visit went with a bang as the canon was set off, worth a trip for this alone.

You get to the castle via an amphibious bus (although you can walk when the tide is out). There's an interesting museum and a very small cafe. The castle itselfis not the prettiest as the Germans got their hands on it to build an ugly concrete bunker in the top.

Elizabeth Castle has something for everyone -- history, excitement, novelty and great fun for children! Where else can children board a strange looking boat shaped structure with 4 wheels, which is called a Ferry? It is in fact amphibious as they soon discover on the short trip across the water.
