Ferries to Jersey

The British Crown dependency of Jersey is the largest Channel Island, situated just fourteen miles from France, in the Bay of Mont St Michel.

Divided into twelve parishes and measuring nine by five miles, Jersey packs plenty of fun into a limited space. Also, thanks to the moderating effects from the Atlantic, it’s one of the warmest locations in the British Isles, attracting beach lovers and keen historians all year round.

With a strategic location between England and France, Jersey has a long recorded past, stretching over a thousand years, enduring several invasions. However, the turbulent history has culminated in a rich, multi-layered culture with numerous historic monuments. Part of the Duchy of Normandy and Anglo-Norman realm in the middle ages, Jersey possesses a strong French influence today, mostly evident in the place and road names.

Arguably the most significant event to shape modern day Jersey was World War II, when the Nazis invaded and formed a slave labour camp. The island’s most iconic attraction was a direct result of the five year occupation: the Jersey War Tunnels. Running over a kilometre long within a hillside, they now hold a collection of galleries and artefacts describing the horrors of the Nazi regime, offering a truly thought-provoking experience.

Perfect for families, the Durrell Wildlife Park was the first ever conservation-themed zoo, established in 1959, home to many types of rare animals including gorillas, flamingos and maned wolves, all within a beautiful thirty-two acre park. Guarding the island from Norman invasions six hundred years ago, Mont Orgueil Castle, today, commands an imposing position overlooking the east coast, hiding a fascinating torture chamber, many secret rooms and tall turrets inside its walls. Finally, thrill-seekers can get stuck into some wind-karting, zip-wiring and paddle boarding, while the stunning, sandy beaches are best for simply relaxing in the sun.

The capital, Saint Helier, is the point of arrival for ferries to Jersey. Unsurprisingly, given the island’s position between the two, there are regular ferry routes from southern England and northern France, run by a couple of top ferry operators. You can also hop over from the other Channel Islands Guernsey and Sark.

Jersey reviews

  • "Excellent "

    Fantastic day trip from Guernsey to Jersy.  Took the ferry over very easy collection of tickets plenty of room on board we had to wait while a Condor ferry unloaded but that was ok maybe 20 minutes or so return trip was great again easy check in and the time we had was enough to have an explore of St Helier a visit to the museum so all in all very good well worth it if your on Guernsey for 4/5 days

  • "Great staff"

    Morning journey to Guernsey was traumatising. It was raining a bit and very windy. But it was very choppy in the sea. The boat was being thrown around like on a roller coaster. Most people threw up. But even though the staff felts sick too, they looked after all the passengers in an incredible way. So thank you so much for that!

  • "Travel on Manche Iles express experience"

    Expdrience would be improved if seat numbers could be give at the time of booking to enable friend groups and especially family members to ensure they are sat together as those boarding at the latter part of the queue resulted in people travelling together being separated which can be distressing for children.
