ItineraryDay 1: We make our way to Poole to join our ferry to Jersey. On arrival we will be transferred by coach to our hotel.

During our tour, we will visit the Neolithic passage grave at La Hougue Bie, home to one of the 10 oldest buildings in the world!
Day 3: Today we enjoy a day at leisure. You may wish to explore St Helier where you can find sophisticated shops, fascinating museums, historic landmarks and a mouth-watering selection of restaurants. Or you may of course decide to have a day of relaxation and enjoy the facilities of your hotel.
Day 4: This morning, we visit Hamptonne Country Life Museum, giving us a wonderful insight into a rural way of life in Jersey that has carried on for centuries. We then head to the Jersey War Time Tunnels, built during the German occupation of the island in WWII. These intricate tunnels are over 1,000m long, so some walking is needed, but the terrain is flat.
