St Helier

By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Our Editorial team's advice

Do not be put off by the modern aspect of St. Helier that you see when you arrive by boat. The historical centre and its pedestrian streets are in fact a little distance from the port area. Around Royal Square, the church founded in the 11th century sits next to the Royal Court building that hosts the head of government of the States of Jersey. Then, go towards the indoor market whose glass roof and metal framework that date back to 1882. The Jersey and Marine museums are worth a look. In the first museum, you can see an entire collection of objects that once belonged to Lillie Langtry, a native to the islands who had a brilliant career as an international actress at the end of the last century. After having several love affairs, in particular with the future Edward VII of England, she finally came back to end her days in Jersey, where she died in 1929. The city's main historical monument is located on a little island in the middle of St. Aubin Bay, near the Hermitage Rock where St. Helier, who eventually gave his name to the city, had retired, before being killed by pirates in 555. Connected by an amphibian vehicle, Elisabeth castle is reachable at low tide. Built in the 16th century to push back hostile incursions, under the Occupation the Germans made a real fortress out of it. Nearby, Fort Regent hill, where a theme park has now been built, offers the most beautiful panorama onto the city and the port. Finally, botanic lovers should not miss the public rose garden at Howard David Park.
