At low tide, you can walk across but we took the amphibious bus both ways. There's plenty to look at and in the courtyard, there's a history of the island portrayed through tableau's and info boards which is a great way of learning what went on and putting it into context.

At low tide it's a short walk to this wonderful old castle. Within its walls are regimental and weaponry displays plus, of course, the obligatory cafe and gift shop. Its history spans hundreds of years of defending St.Helier, and the views alone are worth the trip. There's a lovely old Volvo amphibian to take you back when the tide comes... More

We walked across St.Aubin's Bay to Elizabeth Castle on an ebbing tide and enjoyed a fascinating two hours exploring the fortifications. The causeway at low tide seems popular, but the amphibious shuttle allows all-day access for an extra charge. The castle is huge and there's lots to explore, with marvellous views across the bay and back to St.Hellier, especially from... More

We paid a visit to Elizabeth Castle while staying in St Helier in August 2014, we went over on the DUKW at low tide due to having a member of the family having limited mobility so the walk wouldn't have been that possible, when we arrived at the Castle it was surprisingly big, with some really big buildings when you...

Lovely day out, and walked back from castle. The gentleman at the castle who did the talk was amazing well worth taking a walk around with him. Had something to eat there, but was not impressed with this. Overall well worth the trip.

The one gun salute was brilliant & information on loading a canon, especially as the guy dedicated it to us for our anniversary.

We took the amphibious bus across to the castle, quite a ride with such friendly chaps operating the bus. The castle and surrounding buildings are really an interesting way to spend an afternoon. Leave yourself at least two to three hours for this visit as there is more to see than you think, the castle looks smaller from St Helier... More
