    We visited Elizabeth Castle ad hoc on the way back from the little train trip & got there just in time for the King Charles presentation which we hadn’t known about. We were absolutely delighted we had stumbled across this as we had so much fun, King Charles had us laughing all the way through & we actually learnt so much! Honestly this is not to be missed we ended up spending the whole afternoon at the Castle & had a brilliant time. All the staff at the Castle & the ferry staff were so helpful & friendly. This is a place well worth a visit you certainly won’t be disappointed.

    The island bus service is well organised and generally punctual. Some drivers are a bit quick but they are all friendly and welcoming. The 7 day ticket we bought was really good value for money and it was definitely the best decision to not bother hiring a car.

    Well worth a visit. Really interesting look around the merchants house. Very interesting video and display of the story of Jersey. Worth getting the heritage pass for.

    A lovely park which is well maintained and the flowers were beautiful. There were a few "drinkers" in one area but we had no problems with them.

    Very hands on. Lots for children to explore (and me). The museum is part of the heritage pass so can be visited more than once during your stay.

    There is no escaping the importance of this square to the people of Jersey. The sculpture in the centre is beautiful and there are some really informative information boards explaining what went on during the war.

    Its worth expecting the worst with Condor, that way you won’t be too disappointed when the crossing is ineditably delayed.

    After booking our tickets well in advance and having arranged hotels, trips around our boat times we were obviously annoyed to have the bookings team send us an email informing us our sailing had been cancelled and we had been moved onto a later boat.

    The annoyance was compounded by the customer contact number on the company website jot working despite calling on multiple occasions. The only way we could get in touch was via the company website’s “live chat” service, advertised as live but you have to wait 20minutes to speak to anyone. I have no idea how computer Illiterate passengers contact the company?

    On previous journeys we have often paid to be upgraded as on busy crossings it is convenient to have less busy cafe and WC facilities. But presently all first class lounges are closed and the Horizon Lounge is the only premium seating area available.

    Whilst reasonably priced the upgrade to the Horizon Lounge seating area on the Voyager is a complete waste of money. All passengers are allowed access to the Horizon Lounge area throughout the journey and able to use all Lounge facilities including bar seating area WC etc. The only advantage is you have a forward facing seat looking over the bow of the ship.

    Our outbound journey was on time and an efficient well managed crossing but our return was a (typically for Condor) less enjoyable experience. Despite arriving at the harbour ahead of time we were, on one of the hottest days of the year, held in our car for nearly two hours and our departure was delayed by over an hour. We were given no notice to expect a delay, no Condor staff were on hand to inform customers or advise where WCs were.

    When we enquired with a passing member of the port staff we were told that the ship was extremely busy and therefor the boat staff were taking extra time to load and position each car on the ship. On embarkation this was validated by a overly packed car deck with almost no room to manoeuvre between vehicles, and a passenger deck busier than I have ever seen it.

    The passenger deck was so busy that, despite the present concerns regarding Covid, there was absolutely no chance of social distancing. We were seated directly next to eight other people with no spacing between family groups. There was no one way system in place so we were constantly bumping into other passages, queues for cafes and WCs were at least 10 people deep with no 2m spacing markers, the small shop and outdoor viewing decks had no restriction on access so were often overly busy, it was impossible to throw away rubbish without touching the bins, I did not see any hand sanitiser dispensers anywhere on the ship, although the official policy is for passengers to ware masks onboard this was not being policed and many many passengers were flagrantly ignoring mask waring.

    With the number of people on board and complete lack of Covid safety measures it would have only taken one or two infected passengers to significantly spread the virus.

    On arrival in Jersey the port staff were clearly overstretched trying to offload the packed boat of vehicles. All cars were crammed tail to nose into a car parking area where we waited for nearly three quarters of an hour for all passengers to be PCR tested. If the port authority could add one or two more testing lanes this would massively speed up the process but for us (already over an hour late due to Condor’s late departure) this additional delay was not at all welcome.

    Once past the queues and at the PCR test it was quick, painless and all the staff were very friendly. I do wonder however why this procedure couldn’t be managed on board the ship during the crossing with a 30minute Lateral Flow test?

    In summary Condor was as usual slow and late with friendly and accommodating staff. A necessary inconvenience when travelling from the Channel Islands but much could be improved with better Covid safety measures. Oh, and don’t bother paying for the upgrade until the first class lounge is reinstated.

    Wasn’t aware this existed. A delight to find and extremely interesting to visit. To see a property in the centre of St Helier history and how how it was restored was and is fascinating.
    Worth a visit if you are interested in history and social change.

    If you do not hire a car when visiting Jersey, chances are you will use the excellent bus service and as all buses tend to start or end a journey at the station, make use of the tourist information centre.
    The staff are very helpful and will provide you with maps and timetables, tell you which bus you need for each attraction.

    Well worth a visit - peaceful away from the hustle, bustle and noise of St Helier - just admire the surroundings and contemplate - this visit was quieter than the last - 3 years there was a choir singing but it was hymns etc - the gardens outside were a good resting place - recommended by both wife and Il

    This was probably the first statue I found in St Helier. Interesting choice and seems a favourite perching point for seagulls. Located in the historic charring cross area.

    This statue shows the Islands relief after the German occupation. The Island had to fight and preserve their way of life throughout the Occupation.
