Walked out to the castle thinking I'd get back in time. It didn't happen. Got waylaid looking at all the exhibits and watching the cannon firing demonstration. There is a lot more to see than you think. Caught the little amphibious vehicle back to the shore.

very nice walks around the castle and grounds, weather permitting. fantastic views and lots of information about the changes over the centuries. we walked across the beach and pathed causeway but for £3.50 extra you can go by Amphibious duck/bus/boat even if the tide is in. nice place for a picnic or the cafe if you want to stay for...

A very interesting visit. We travelled there on an amphibious bus, which I am sure children would particularly enjoy. There was an entertaining re-enactment of cannon fire.

You could walk across when the tide is out or use the amphibious bus. It looked lovely although we didn't visit the actual castle.

We took the amphibious vehicle over to the castle and arrived just in time for the free tour. It was worth doing as the 75 minutes gave a good insight to this huge place and its history. The garden tea room was surrounded by wild flowers and served good value coffee and cakes. Three museums plus walks over to the... More

Great castle in a lovely setting. Its interesting to visit either by walking across when the tide is out or visiting by boat. Well worth a visit for the views alone

I have been to the castle many times over the years and it is still great. Disappointed to be told once we arrived at the castle on the ferry that the noon day gun wasn't going to be done that day (which was a shame as I had taken my other half over to see this) think maybe they should... More

Fab day out for the family we caught duck boat out and walked back. Lots to see and explore. Place brought to life with staff in costume too. Plenty to read but interspersed with displays of room set up to show how soldiers would have lived whilst defending Jersey against French attack.

Liked the trip on the amphibious vehicle, as causeway not open due to tide. I thought the castle was unusual in that it was more of purely defensive nature, without the normal keep etc. Lots of steps and I enjoyed the visit.

Just spent the afternoon at Elizabeth Castle, it's amazing. Took the ferry as the tide was in, strange looking amphibious vehicle but it added to the trip. Free guided tours on offer took one given by Luke, the nicest young man ever, he was knowledgable, polite and had a lovely sense of humour, was also local so filled in with... More
