This Castle is a must see when you are in Jersey. Full of history and stunning views. You can decide if you walk over tho the castle (tide of corse) or you take the ferry which is a peciluar vehicle but fun to drive with it. You don't have that this often in your life. The Castle is full of history and pieces especially when the Germans occupied it during 2nd World War. There is a cafe inside where you can buy some drinks and cakes. Be aware that smoking is not allowed during your visit. Even vaping is prohibited. This is a nice excursion for couples, friends, family alike.

The whole thing starts with a fabulous 'duck - boat' trip, manned by a couple of very interesting chaps, and a very funny safety video that everyone watched ! This trip is motor or sailing dependent on level of water, and takes you past the Victorian sea lido. The Castle is much bigger than was expected and very, very interesting. Some members of staff live there and there is also an apartment that can be rented from Jersey Heritage - I think that would be a fantastic experience. The views from the high points were far reaching and gave us chance to see the Jersey coastline from a slightly different perspective. The cafe was adequate, and the Covid-driven one-way system was a bit tricky to navigate ,but the staff were really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Thoroughly recommended.

A great bargain, both castles were excellent, the prehistoric tomb was fascinating and also went to the Maritime museum was great with a lot of interactive activities, great for all ages,as well as the the wartime tapestries which brought life to the period of occupation.
