Itinerary

Description

Every summer, the enchanting Channel Island of Jersey stages a fabulous 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. On this lovely break, we also enjoy a unique behind-the-scenes preview of the parade as well as a tour of Jersey’s glorious coast and time to explore the island at leisure.

Air Itinerary

Included Excursions

Exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Battle of Flowers preparations 

After an early dinner on our second evening, we have an exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes to see the final touches being applied to some of the floats that will feature in the Battle of Flowers Parade. The floats are works of art with designs that are a closely guarded secret, but we can see up close the painstaking detail that goes into each one, chat with the constructors and take photos during our unique evening.

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.

 

Island Highlights Tour

We take a delightful tour along 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-west corner of the island. We also visit St Ouen’s Bay with its miles of golden sand and rolling Atlantic waves – a prime spot for surfing, and picturesque Gorey harbour overlooked by Mont Orgueil Castle.
