The sights:

St Helier

- the streets of St Helier, Jersey's capital, hold a host of hidden delights. It has sophisticated shops, varied nightlife and a mouth-watering selection of restaurants, whilst the pace of life is leisurely and guaranteed to put you in holiday mode.

The Central Market, St Helier - as you might expect on an island renowned for some of its food exports (Jersey Royals and tomatoes to name but two), the Central Market in Halkett Place is a bustling commercial area in St Helier. The market itself is housed in a stunning Victorian building that dates back to 1803. Noted for its fine architecture as well as the colourful displays of famed Jersey produce. A great place to buy flowers and Jersey Lily bulbs!

Waterfront complex - a more recent addition to St Helier's attractions is the Waterfront complex, which is a great place for all the family. Comprising a marina, multiscreen cinema, swimming pool with slides and a fun pool, a nightclub and a range of eateries, this is the new place to be in town.

Jersey Museum - located by the Weighbridge behind the bus station, the Jersey Museum's "Story of Jersey" exhibition is an ideal introduction to the island.

Elizabeth Castle - the turrets and towers of Elizabeth Castle, named after Queen Elizabeth I by Sir Walter Raleigh, are marooned on a rock a mile out to sea at high tide when they can be reached by "duck boat", but at low tide, they can be reached on foot via a causeway.

Fort Regent - originally built as a safe haven for the citizens of St Helier, Fort Regent is now dedicated to fun comprising a superb sport and leisure facility with a swimming pool, squash and badminton courts, refreshment outlets and housing various travelling exhibitions and audio-visual shows about its history. The views over St Aubin's and St Clement's Bay alone make a visit worthwhile.

Jersey Zoo - owned by the Durrell Worldlife Conservation Trust and internationally known for its work in saving and breeding endangered species, Jersey Zoo is well worth a visit.

Jersey War Tunnels - The Jersey War Tunnels are Jersey's most evocative museum of the five years of German occupation during World War II. Originally intended for use as an artillery barracks it was converted to a hospital in 1944.

The Living Legend - A purpose built attraction that very cleverly tells the story of the island of Jersey via an effective audio-visual presentation. An Adventure Golf Course, Craft and Shopping Village, Go-Karting track and an excellent restaurant make this a fun day out for all the family.

Mont Orgueil Castle - Towering over the picturesque harbour of Gorey is Mont Orgueil, where 13th Century islanders watched anxiously for invaders. It served as a German command and observation post during World War II. The recent renovation, which opened up a labyrinth of stairways and passageways previously closed to the public, makes the castle well worth a visit.

Jersey Potteries - A lovely place to while away an afternoon watching pottery demonstrations (or even trying it out yourself), browsing around the shop and glorious gardens or sampling a Jersey cream tea in the restaurant.
