Discover the beauty and excitement that Jersey has to offer

Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, a distinctive collection of British islands located between France and the UK.

Breathtaking beaches with fine golden sands and wild & rocky landscapes define the coastline, providing a haven for active, outdoor living. Remnants of Jersey’s unique history can be seen from its castles, Napoleonic fortresses and World War II fortifications dotting the coastline and Neolithic burial sites found amongst the lush inland countryside.

The lively main town of St Helier has a pedestrianised area with a wealth of shops for varying tastes and a plentiful supply of restaurants serving local seafood and international cuisines.

The island provides a warm and welcoming setting for our courses, with locals known for their open & friendly attitude. Although it is relatively small, it has a sizeable international population and varied tourist attractions.

Getting to Jersey

As a prominent offshore financial centre Jersey is well connected to Europe. Regular ferries from France and direct flights from Germany, Switzerland & Austria allow for uncomplicated travel. There are also daily transfers from London Gatwick and other UK airports.

Our homestay providers will collect you straight from the harbour or airport at no extra cost so you are made to feel at home from the start.
