Citywing Destinations : Jersey

Culture vultures will discover history at every turn, walkers will be captivated by the Island’s stunning natural beauty, and families can relax without a care on pristine beaches. It’s also the ideal place to clear your head, indulge in some exhilarating outdoor sports, or simply live the life!

We’re an island of opposites, a small island with a big personality. Action-packed short breaks and long, lazy summer holidays. Sophisticated seaside hotels and great-value guest houses. A dash of continental Europe, a splash of Britain. Cosmopolitan city life, leafy country lanes, traditional beach cafés and trendy restaurants. Fabulous seafood and fields full of Jersey cows…

It's easy to get to – and can be as easy on the wallet as you want, especially since you’ll be paying in pounds, not euros.

That’s the thing about Jersey, there’s much more to the island than you may think. See for yourself, experience things island-style

History

The cultural landscape of Jersey – its Norman style farmhouses, the narrow winding lanes and small fields, the French street names – reflect a fascinating and complex history that has entwined the island in the fate of two great nations: Britain and France for over one thousand years.

Even Jersey’s prehistoric period produced a rich legacy of artefacts. Remnants of a great French forest that existed over 10,000 years ago, when the island was part of the continent can still be seen today at St Ouen when there is a low tide. Flints and crude stone tools were left by hunters in La Cotte a la Chevre (Goat’s cave) now perched 60 feet (18 m) above the sea level on the north coast of St Ouen and La Cotte de St Brelade is one of the most important Palaeolithic sites in Europe. La Hougue Bie is another very impressive prehistoric burial chamber some 30 feet (9 m) long, four feet  (1.2 m) high and roofed with flat, rectangular capstones. Made of earth, limpet shells and rubble, it houses a Neolithic passage grave built about 3000 BC.

Climate and Weather

Jersey’s more southerly location and its protected position in the Bay of St Malo result in an attractive, temperate climate offering more warmth and sunshine than can be found in the rest of the British Isles.
