Jersey is a small but beautiful Channel Island located in the English Channel between England and France. With its stunning countryside, picturesque harbour towns, and varied community of people, Jersey truly has something to offer every traveller.

History

Excavation evidence suggests that people have called Jersey home since ancient times, but it was the Vikings who first settled here around 900 AD. Jersey is an independent island under the Crown's protection of the UK, and has since held its own distinct culture and language through the centuries.

Cities

The two biggest islands are St Helier, the capital city of Jersey, located on the east of the main island and St Aubin, located on the south coast. Both are famous for their beachfront scenery and restaurants. Around 70km away from St Helier lies the smaller island of Sark. Renowned for its natural beauty and cliff coastline with panoramic views, Sark is one of Europe’s last medieval feudal states and a haven for lovers of nature and outdoor activities.
