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.

  • "easy to book"

    I used Direct Ferries in my planning for our trip to Guernsey. As a single mum with two boys (one a teenager!!) the less hassle, the easier life is, especially when the logistics of 400+ car miles to get to the Ferry had to be negotiated first. I booked on line and was quickly confirmed and updated. Due to car issues, I had to change cars twice before our travel. Each update was quick and easy to do and was clearly processed when we checked in. On board the ship was clean and comfortable. The hoover staff used to clean up a passengers' dodgy tummy didn't help, as it seemed t share the odour round the whole area. The staff noticeably remained unflustered and cheery throughout. On or return we were sat near one of the exclusive seating lounges- controlled by an entry pad. Several customers forgot the code. My boys had remembered it from watching others and happily shared it with the customers. Some received this well, others seemed a bit annoyed. I guess if paying extra you'd expect that exclusivity. It added to my boys' pleasure, but perhaps an entry card or something more discreet would work better.? The food we chose was well presented and well cooked, with options for all. I did later decide Id like another green tea and tried to purchase the unlimited refill for an extra pound (as the ad. stated) I learned however that you cant do that after a purchase. That seems a bit unfair to me and a bit misleading - so beware - if you think you'd like it, buy it at the time....unless of course the Ferry change their policy. Both journeys went well, there was a longer delay on etruning to Poole(it seemed they took 4 lanes of traffic down to one check point).
