Discover Jersey’s Hidden Gems…

As well as 45 miles of beaches and cliff paths, pretty seaside villages, castles, museums and, of course, vibrant St Helier, the island of Jersey is packed with hidden treasures just waiting to be discovered.

These include St Matthew’s Glass Church in St Lawrence, small and unassuming from the outside, but inside is furnished with Lalique masterpieces including a stunning white glass font, altar rail, cross and pillars.  Each is original and unique to this renowned glass designer who was commissioned in the 1930s by Lady Trent, married to Jesse Boot, the founder of Boots the Chemist in the 1930s, to complete her refurbishment project of the church.

For lovers of wildlife, flora and fauna, The National Trust Jersey Wetland Centre is the largest natural open water space in Jersey and is a place of observation, education and conservation.  There are wonderful exhibits describing the local wildlife, flora and fauna and an observation room opening onto the wetland with excellent birdwatching.  There is also live camera footage of the surrounding wildlife, a bird identification panel and interactive multimedia touch screens.

Or, La Hougue Bie Museum is one of the ten oldest buildings in the world, built long before the Egyptian pyramids and aligned with the equinox.  It is one of Europe’s oldest passage graves and visitors can discover Jersey’s Neolithic history at this tranquil and spiritual heritage site.

For  those who fancy checking out some of Jersey’s ‘hidden gems’, the three-star Mayfair Hotel in St Helier is highlighting three-night breaks from as little  £289 per person or from £465 per person for seven nights.  These twin share prices include return flights from Gatwick or Liverpool, transfers and accommodation with breakfast.  Flights are available from other regional airports, supplements may apply.  Facilities and this friendly hotel include an indoor swimming pool, a fully-equipped gym, a bar, restaurant and coffee shop.
