The road to St Albans on the bus was very congested with traffic so we decided to get the little train back to St Helier. It gave a wonderful insight into the history of the place as well as getting us off the very busy road.

This is a novelty way to get from St Helier to St Aubins, the train travels along the route of the old railway, try it when you are there.

Forget the car, forget the bus, let the 'Petit Train' take the strain. Climb aboard for a novel way to enjoy Saint Aubins Bay. Running between Liberation Square, St.Helier and the Parish Hall, St.Aubins via the promenade and cycle lanes, this is very relaxing way to travel for all the family. Currently £7:50 for an adult return ticket it is... More

There is on board commentary that I was not expecting, pointing out landmarks and interesting facts on the way out and on the way back, which you may not necessarily get to find out yourself. The trains run every hour, and the last... More

Every time we come to Jersey we always do the St Helier to St Aubin round trip on the Petit Train. It's just so nice to travel nice and slowly along the magnificent sea front and listen to the ever updated commentary. It's great that people wave at you and have smiles on their faces - makes the trip very... More

A very interesting trip round the bay with a very good commentary. Thoroughly enjoyable! It was a bit expensive!
