Elizabeth Castle

St Aubin’s Bay, St Helier, JE3


Elizabeth Castle is the perfect place to spend a day exploring Jersey's history. Climb the battlements dating back to the 1590’s, when Sir Walter Raleigh was Governor of Jersey from 1600 until 1603.  Explore the grounds which gave refuge to King Charles II during the English Civil War and uncover the bunkers which were re-fortified to command the sea approaches to Jersey during the German Occupation in World War II. Marvel at the hermitage where St Helier is thought to have lived around 550 A.D, take part in Living History demonstrations and experience what life was like for the soldiers who were garrisoned here.

The castle is only accessible at low tide by foot or the castle ferries, Charming Betty or Charming Nancy, which will transport you across the bay to and from the castle. The castle ferry runs daily at high or low tide, except in high winds.
