Jersey’s Joie de Vivre
Day 1 St Helier
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Jersey. On arrival, we’ll transfer the short distance to St Helier and our hotel.
Day 2 Bouley Bay - Gorey
Our first stop of the day is Bouley Bay, home of the legendary Black Dog - a myth created by smugglers to keep local folk away from the bay and their clandestine activities. We then continue to Gorey. Its castle was built to protect Jersey against the French in the early 13th century, when King John lost his rule over territories in Normandy.
- Full-day island excursion including Bouley Bay and Gorey (all day)
Day 3 St Helier
You’re free today. There are several worthy gardens and parks to enjoy including the Howard Davis Park and Les Jardins de la Mer, complete with a water maze.
Alternatively, a shuttle bus can transport you to the Jersey War Tunnels. Originally intended to be a barracks and ammunition store for the occupying forces during World War II, it is now a thought provoking museum to this dark era.
Day 4 Jersey Lavender Farm
This morning we have included a half-day excursion to Jersey Lavender Farm. Although the lavender fields may not be in bloom when we visit, we’ll be taken on a guided tour and learn about everything from how the farm started, to the filling and labelling of bottles.
Please note: The lavender fields usually begin to show their colour from late May and are harvested from late June to early August.

Day 5 St Brelade’s Bay - St Mary
We embark on our second full-day exploration of the island. Our first stop is St Matthew’s Church, famous for the glasswork on the font, altar and cross, created by René Lalique and thought to be his greatest achievement. We then call in at the Eric Young Orchid Foundation before heading for the north coast, stopping at the Jersey Pearl Centre. Following time here, we’ll stop for photos at Corbiere Lighthouse on our way to La Mare Vineyard for a wine tasting and afternoon tea.
