Visit Jersey, the Island of Adventure

Whether it's food, events, activities or history that makes your perfect trip, Jersey has something for everyone.  It's official, Jersey is the warmest place in the British Isles.  As the sun starts to set on a British summer, escape across the Channel to Jersey for a warmer summer.

Jersey packs a huge gastronomic punch for its size, with plenty of Michelin-starred restaurants to whet our appetite.  The emphasis of many restaurants is on locally sourced cuisine, and many dishes, such as Jersey's famous black butter, cream and super fresh seafood that come straight from farm to fork.  For a true Jersey foodie experience, try The Oyster Box in St Brelade, overlooking St Brelade's Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

For a small island, Jersey manages a packed events calendar.  For starters, there's October's foodie Tennerfest, where over 100 of Jersey's restaurants offer fixed price meals, meaning you can try some outstanding cuisine for less.  October also sees everything from Minis to rally cars face around the island lanes in the 2014 Jersey paperclix Rally.  For something a little less high-actane, the end of September welcomes the Branchage Film Festival, which mixes cutting-edge films with music and other events.

Keen walkers will love Jersey.  With its vast network of coastal paths, rugged clifftops and around picturiques harbours, Jersey is an ideal location to discover on foot, and there are plenty of organised walking tours to join if you don't fancy going it alone.  More dynamic activities include sea kayaking, blokarting and coasteering, a fusion of rock climbing, scrambling, swimming and cliff jumping, all taking place on Jersey's beautiful beaches.

Jersey is rich in historic sites to discover. There are many prehistoric tombs and medieval castles to discover, as well as plenty of reminders of Jersey's role in World War II.  Don't miss the engaging War Tunnels experience, to learn more about the island's occupation during World War II, it's a must-see for history fans.
