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!

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.

Beautifully kept castle and lawns go on a day with good weather. Small cafe ok. Views of the awful incinerator but great views of harbour

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.
