Your Itinerary

View a full breakdown of your holiday to help you plan your trip

  • Your tour manager will meet you when you arrive, and you'll transfer the short distance to your chosen hotel by coach.

    After check-in, the rest of the day is yours to savour, depending on your arrival time. The bustling island capital, with its colourful port and prevailing maritime feel, offers everything you could wish for in a relaxing holiday. You'll find some great cafés, bars and restaurants – where fresh fish is very often the order of the day – and shopping is a pleasure thanks in part to Jersey’s tax-free status. The town centre has wide range of well-known high street names, some long-established island stores and some fascinating arts and crafts boutiques.

    If shopping isn't your thing, head for the waterfront, the harbour, the beach. Don’t miss the imposing Elizabeth Castle, one-time home of famed seafarer Sir Walter Raleigh, or the fascinating Maritime Museum, which chronicles the island's 'sea life' through the ages. Jersey Museum also traces the island’s history, and houses island native John Millais’ famous portrait of Jersey’s most famous daughter, Lillie Langtry.

  • Discover the island, its scenic countryside and fascinating history on today's included guided tour, which circumnavigates the beautiful coastline.

    See sweeping the vast tracts of sand of St Aubin’s Bay – Jersey has one of the highest tidal reaches in the world and at low tide you have to walk miles to dip your toes in the water - and La Corbière and its lighthouse. The west coast is fringed by the sands of St Ouen’s Bay, which in turn gives way to the rugged cliffs of the north coast. On the eastern side of the island the coastline reverts to sandy beaches. Here, spectacular, 600-year-old Mont Orgueil, one of Britain’s best-preserved castles, towers over Gorey Harbour and the curve of the Royal Bay of Grouville. It’s one of many photo stops on a relaxed, fun-filled day that includes a stop for lunch (payable locally).

    Back in St Helier, enjoy a pre-dinner stroll in the delightful town or along the harbourfront. In the town’s busy port there is always the bustle of colourful marine life to be seen, as craft of all shapes and sizes go about their business.

  • Today’s fascinating included excursion gives you the chance to explore the extraordinary, vast underground city built (by a mix of workers and appallingly treated PoWs) for the German occupiers in World War Two. Originally a barracks, the tunnels were converted into a hospital in 1944, and they are preserved as a reminder of the pain of the war for the islanders.

  • Rest and relax at your hotel or in St Helier, or join today’s half-day optional excursion to the centre of the island and to famous "Jersey Zoo". Officially, known as the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust - this safari park continues the work begun by its founder - world-renowned author and naturalist Gerald Durrell - saving endangered species from extinction. It's a fascinating and inspiring place, and you'll learn about its history as you ride into the park aboard the Durrell Shuttle with the sounds of its animal inhabitants in the background.

    Back in St Helier and its surroundings there is always something to do. Relax with a good book in the hotel lounge or in a sunny corner on a terrace, or do something more energetic. The island is famous for its Green Lanes, and a gentle bike ride along them on a rented bicycle is a real pleasure, while those who wish to stretch their legs can choose to join our optional guided walk.

  • This morning enjoy your final included excursion, and explore Jersey’s south coast from the vantage of the sea, on board the Jersey Duchess. After the transfer from your hotel to the quayside, set sail towards 16th-century Elizabeth Castle, then continue toward beautiful St Aubin’s Bay, Noirmont Point, before finally arriving at La Corbière lighthouse. A full commentary will add to the enjoyment of your cruise. And keep an eye out for the local dolphins that occasionally follow the boat as you return to St Helier.

    Later, spend a final evening in St Helier, reliving memories of the last few days.

  • Depending on your flight time, you may have a last opportunity for an early morning stroll before it’s time to head to the airport at the end of a wonderful Jersey holiday.

Further Information

  • The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately fifteen minutes.
  • We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
  • If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
  • The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

  • Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
  • Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

  • Please note that some hotel facilities operate on a seasonal basis, and may not always be open/available. Examples include entertainment and outdoor/indoor swimming pools.

  • From 1 January 2021, new rules apply on travel within Europe.

    Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air.

    New rules apply when travelling to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure:

    Passport
    British passport holders need to have at least six months left on their passport and it needs to be less than ten years old.
    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.
    Visa
    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.
    Border Control
    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You may also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing.
    Healthcare Cover
    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad. Your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) will no longer be valid. It’s particularly important you have travel insurance with the right cover if you have a pre-existing medical condition. This is because the EHIC scheme covers pre-existing conditions, while many travel insurance policies do not. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.
    Mobile Roaming
    From 1 January 2021, the guarantee of free mobile phone roaming throughout the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway will end.
    Check with your phone operator to find out about any roaming charges you might get from 1 January 2021.
