Itinerary

Description

Every summer, the enchanting Channel Island of Jersey stages a spectacular floral extravaganza, the Battle of Flowers. One of the highlights on Jersey’s calendar, the spectacle of flower festooned floats, musicians, dancers and street entertainers creates a tremendous carnival atmosphere which involves the whole island and attracts thousands of visitors each year. We also enjoy a unique behind the scenes preview of the parade as well as time to explore this beautiful island at leisure.

Air Itinerary

Unique Behind the Scenes Tour of the Battle of Flowers Preparations  
After an early dinner on our fourth evening, we have a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes to see the final touches being applied to some of the floats that will take part in the Battle of Flowers Parade. The floats are works of art with designs that are a closely guarded secret. See up close the painstaking detail that goes into each float and take the opportunity to chat with the float constructors and take photos.

Battle of Flowers Parade
First staged in 1902 in celebration of the Coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, Jersey’s Battle of Flowers is one of the largest floral carnivals in Europe and the island’s oldest event.


We take our places in the Grandstand to watch the afternoon spectacle as flower festooned floats parade around the arena accompanied by musicians, dancers and bands, all creating a wonderful carnival atmosphere and a veritable feast for the eyes.

Optional Excursion
Island Highlights Tour (£17pp)
Our optional half day tour takes in Jersey’s spectacular coastline. Highlights include St Brelade’s Bay, one of the island’s most popular resort beaches, the rugged north coast overlooking the neighbouring Channel Islands and the famous Corbière lighthouse on the south-western corner of the island. We also visit St Ouen’s Bay with its miles of golden sand and rolling Atlantic waves - a veritable paradise for surfers, and picturesque Gorey harbour overlooked by Mont Orgueil castle.
