Let Jersey Fire Your Imagination


Discover Jersey, where autumn comes late and warm, carefree days just seem to linger. Feel the delicious warmth of the sun on your back as you meander along berry-filled lanes with leaves crunching underfoot, or make the most of the late autumn sun by listening to the waves crashing on the shore and feeling the fresh sea breeze in your hair.

From Walking Weeks to the calorific temptations of Tennerfest; the high-action International Air Show to the tranquillity of the Jersey Regatta, if you are looking for a short break or weekend getaway, Jersey will excite and surprise this autumn.

Shop 'til you drop in bespoke boutiques, department stores and your favourite high-street names. Come across all the brands from leading designers - Cartier to Conran, Timberland to TagHeuer and enjoy the added benefit of Jersey's low-tax prices - just be prepared to exceed your baggage allowance on your return!

Or unwind as the evenings draw in, with the crackling of an open fire to entice you into one of many intimate inns. Whether it is to relax and indulge or recollect on the day's adventures, you're sure to feel at home here.

Getting to Jersey is easy with flights from more than 30 regional UK airports, or, hop on the ferry from the south coast with great-value fares available. Whatever your passion, Jersey will leave you captivated and invigorated this autumn.
