2.5 of 5 bubbles based on 2 votes

This is a list of the places we visited in jersey and what we PERSONALLY thought of them.

  • Category: Recent trip
  • Traveler type: Never been before
  • Appeals to: Tourists
  • Seasons: Summer
  • 1. the pallot steam museum
    http://www.aboutbritain.com/PallotSteamMuseum.htm

    A collection of old trains, cars, tractors, organs,bikes...you name it ...its here. With admission at around a fiver we found this the best value attraction in jersey. The museum is privately owned and most of the items appear to be maintained by the owners. We enjoyed the visit and marvelled at the care in which some of the items had been restored. This was our best attraction in jersey

  • 2. mount orgeuil castle
    http://www.jerseyheritagetrust.org/sites/orgueil/orgueil.html

    one of jersey's many castles but is well maintained and has been well renovated. it is worth a visit and has some good views from the top. The castle is located in Gorey. after your visit there is a little cafe in the village that has a wide selection of breakfast type foods e.g eggs, bacon, battered fish, chips. you can even make your own salad. This cafe is good because it is reasonably priced unlike a lot of places in jersey

  • 3. Jersey War Tunnels

    The war tunnels tell the history of the occupation of jersey in the second world war and how the tunnels were originally built as an underground hospital but never used. Adult admission was 9 pound, which we felt was too expensive as was the gift shop . We felt this attraction needed to be re thought or alternatively reduce the admission prices.

  • 4. Elizabeth Castle St Helier
    http://www.aboutbritain.com/ElizabethCastle.htm

    We visited this castel as the tide was going out and on a sunday.
    We reached the castle by Puddle Duck because the tide had not receded enough to walk along the causeway. the single fare was 3.30 sterling and admission to the castle for an adult was 5.40. sterling We enjoyed the visit and the volunteer army force who set off canons and do drills are to be congratulated for the effort they put in. there is a cafe which we did not use but seemed OK

  • 5. Jersey pottery

    We visited the working pottery on our last day. It was raining and the place was packed as most people were looking to avoid the rain. It was lunchtime and therefore there was nothing going on at the pottery but the restaurant was full. we collect pottery and so were expecting more from the visit. To be fair, admission was free and we did not go on either the best of days or the best of times ...but I dont think I would go again.

  • 6. bonne nuit bay

    This is the best beach we came across in jersey . The weather was good which made the beach busy but not too overcrowded. This was how I expected to find all beaches in Jersey ...but sadly it is not so . This beach however is good for young and old and parking is available. What more can I say

  • 7. bouley bay

    This is another great beach but perhaps with an emphasis of water sports. We just enjoyed the beach and sat in a chair overlooking the bay
    Parking is limited

  • 8. plemont bay

    great little beach with plenty of parking above the beach with some limited parking near the cafe. the cafe was good and the toilets clean. The beach is good and there are caves and a lifeguard BUT the beach gets covered by the tide and therefore we think the sand is never completely dry. Having said that its well worth the trip

  • 9. The devils hole

    this is a cave ...its a complete waste of time ..not worth the walk down but there is a statue of the devil at the start of the walk.....

  • 10. Fort Regent St Helier

    We found this very disappointing, Fort Regent overlooks St Helier when you drive in from the airport and most other places. Its actually quite hard to find ...the signposts are well hidden and the best access is via the pier road car park. This is essentially a community centre for the local population, with gym facilities, keep fit to music, a creche and a large hall. We looked to be the only non locals when we visited the place. We think that at one time there used to be a swimming pool...there is certainly a swimming club office in the building but we did not see a pool
