Set just a few miles off the north coast of France, Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands. Known as a tax haven that has attracted a large number of wealthy residents over the years, it is also a major tourist designation, popular with British visitors and Europeans alike.
Why not enjoy a relaxing and comfortable stay at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel in the heart of St Helier. This 4-star hotel lies within easy reach of some of the island's top attractions, including the Jersey Opera House, the thriving town centre and St Helier Marina with its luxury yachts, eateries and shops.
Thanks to its location, Jersey enjoys a wonderfully mild climate. In fact the island's tourist chiefs have claimed it is the warmest place in the British Isles, making the destination a top spot for beach lovers. Stunning stretches of golden sand can be found across the south and west of the island, while the northern and eastern coastlines are perfect places to find rock pools teeming with life.
There are plenty of attractions dotted across Jersey, with something to appeal to all tastes. During your stay at the Radisson Jersey be sure to pay a visit to the Jersey War Tunnels and discover what happened during the Second World War when the island fell into German hands. You can also find out more about the area at Jersey Museum and Art Gallery, which covers 250,000 years of the island's history.
Transport lovers will enjoy a trip to the Pallot Steam, Motor & General Museum in Trinity, while the nearby Durrell Wildlife Park offers a fantastic day out for families. The park is home to a great range of endangered animals and plays a major role in helping protect the world's most threatened species from extinction.
Consider hiring a bike and cycling down some of the island's quiet lanes to take in the magnificent flora and fauna, or perhaps take to the water and experience a different side of Jersey. You might even be lucky enough to spot some of the resident dolphins and seals.
The centre of St Helier, with its busy pedestrianised streets and fantastic mix of high-street names and independent boutiques, is a great destination for anyone who wants to pick up some essentials or shop for gifts.
Take a look inside The Harbour Gallery to the west of St Aubin to find the work of more than 100 local artists. You might also want to head for the La Mare Wine Estate to buy some local produce including Jersey Apple Brandy and the famous Jersey Black Butter preserve.
