Proudly British, but located just 14 miles from the coast of France, Jersey enjoys the almost unique position of offering a holiday that combines the familiarity of home with a distinctly European flavour. Despite not needing a passport to travel on your Jersey Holiday from the UK (although photographic identification is required) arrivals from Poole harbour drive off the high-speed ferry straight on to ‘La Route du Port Elizabeth’, one of many French language road names that may suggest you’ve found yourself in Brittany rather than on British shores.
With miles of untouched beaches, world-famous cows and a fascinating history that tells different tales from the rest of the UK, a visit to Jersey is guaranteed to give visitors a staycation with a difference. The beauty of making the short but sweet journey to Jersey is that you’ll find a familiar blend of home comforts mixed with the Island’s unique community, scenery and culture that give it its flare.
