People & Culture

Jersey's unique personality is the best of Britain with a touch of French 'Je ne sais quoi'!

Ancient monuments play host to modern music festivals, medieval castles are transformed into inventive installations and state of the art architecture provides an impressive backdrop.

Embrace the thriving arts scene or immerse yourself in the atmosphere of fun, family friendly festivals. Enjoy fresh local produce, world class wine and sample an authentic taste of Jersey at seasonal fayre.

Why not give it a shuck?

Jersey has the third largest tidal range in the world, which means that the island is lucky enough to be blessed with the perfect environment to harvest oysters. With a daily influx of some of the cleanest sea water in Europe, the Royal Bay of Grouville is host to Jersey’s Oyster farms. Come up for air and join our local guides for a tasting tour of the bay at low tide.

Decadent dining

Glow from the inside out and feast on local ingredients drawn from the hidden bounty of the island’s larder. Experience the very best of local produce and foraged gems in one of Jersey’s Michelin starred restaurants. From the Atlantic views of Ocean restaurant and the gastronomic retreat of Ormer with its wild roof terrace, rebalance over a perfectly paired glass of wine or two.

Retail therapy

Charming and compact, feel the French influence within the island’s capital. Even if your clients are here for less than a day, Jersey’s shopping and markets are within easy reach to business visitors. Whether it’s designer collections, leading labels, eclectic or eccentric, St. Helier’s crisscross of shopping streets and nearby mall, Liberty Wharf, are there to be explored. Your business clients can rest their feet and stop off in a nearby café for a quick espresso, or enjoy a glass of wine all before the last flight of the day!
