Book a Bargain Ferry from Portsmouth to Jersey deal today. The Island of Jersey is located in the English Channel, and is known as the largest of the “Channel Islands.” That being said, there are a number of things to do when on the island – many of which we’re going to take a quick look at here.
Some of their most well known attractions are only a few miles from the ferry port, and there is transportation available throughout the entire year.
These attractions include:
– The Durrell Wildlife Park, which includes Desert creatures, Asian birds, and a variety of other exotic animals.
– The Jersey War Tunnels, used to help defend the troops that were stationed there during WWII.
– The wide variety of beaches – there are about 53 miles of beachfront that is accessible around the Island of Jersey.
– Castles of all sorts; including the Mont Orgeuil Castle, which has been around since the 1200’s.
– A variety of museums and other cultural attractions that allow you to see the history of this region and the cultural differences it has helped to make in history.
If shopping is more of your thing, you may want to check out some of their quaint shops, including The Harbour Gallery (art gallery), Catherine Best and the Jersey Pearl (both jewelery), the La Mare Wine Estate, and Rachel’s Textiles. As the Island of Jersey becomes more popular, more shopping areas are expected to pop up.
After you’re done checking out all of the sights, food may be on your mind. Some of the restaurants that they have include La Fregate Café, the Merchant House Brasserie (traditional British fare), Le Petit Greek Bistro, the Jersey Pottery Café (sandwiches and pastries), and the Old Portelet Inn (pub and bar fare). Many of these restaurants are right on the waterfront or within a short walk or drive.
