Cheap flights to Jersey
A British island with a distinct French character, Jersey attracts tourists with its mix of understated class, history and outstanding beauty. It may only be a mere 116 square kilometres in size but the island of Jersey packs a lot into a small space. This tiny piece of England off the coast of France is a home from home for Brits looking for guaranteed good summer weather, and milder winter temperatures.
But that’s not the only reason Jersey pulls in the tourists. This is a place dominated by beautiful landscapes, sea views, rocky coastline and dramatic cliffs. And because of strict construction laws, the island has remained unchanged for decades. What’s more, you’ll find some of the best beaches in the British Isles on Jersey. Sandy swathes, rocky coves and secluded bays make up the 30 or so beaches on the island, which give those in the Mediterranean a good run for their money.
Every Thursday from 4 July to 12 September the Jersey Farm and Craft Market takes over Weighbridge Place from 10am to 6pm. Members of Genuine Jersey congregate to sell their wares. Look out for hand-crafted jewellery and ceramics alongside fresh scallops, local sausages and pints of Jersey cider. genuinejersey.com
On 24-26 October, visitors can join in the tradition of making local delicacy black butter from the island's apple harvest. Peel the apples, stir the pot and learn about the history and tradition of the condiment and how it can be used with different foods today. nationaltrust.je/event/black-butter-making
