1. What to do if it rains
WeatherVery hot and sunny though like the U.K & Normandy/Brittany, this is not always the case. Jersey does have the highest hours of sunshine in Great Britain though this may not always seem so. It is southern Britain after all - not the south of France.
HolidayVery enjoyable. It is a great place to come by yourself but is even more enjoyable with a friend or family. The people are friendly and with Portugese and Polish, Thai and Kenyan you get a slightly cosmopolitan feel.
Places RecommendedThe beaches are very good but the water is cold,18*C by August/September depending on the summer.
Although entrance fees are on the high side, H8O (The Underground Hospital), The Living Legend, Durrells (The Jersey Wildlife Trust) and Mont Orgueil (Gorey castle) are all worth seeing.
Try a pleasant stroll around Queen's Valley Reservoir, the Railway way Walk or a walk out to Corbiere Lighthouse (at low tide the causeway is exposed) for free activities. Only attempt a walk to Seymour Tower as the tide is going out and make sure you start heading in before the tide does! A walk around Grosnez Castle is also recommended and on a very fine day you can see Alderney, along with the other Channel Islands. Or try a North Coast walk along the cliffpath overlooking the Echrehou's and France the pop down to The Hungry Man in Rozel Harbour for an informal bite to eat.
St. Matthew's (The Glass Church) is also free though donations are welcomed. While you are there you can take a stroll around Coronation Park (Millbrook Park).
There's plenty to do so don't complain because St. Helier is closed on Sunday. And I haven't even mentioned Reg's Garden, Shell Cottage (Shell Garden), The Orchid Foundation, The a'maizin! Maze, St. Brelade's Church with Fisherman's Chapel, Portelet Inn, Noirmont Point, Battle of Flowers Museum, Maritime Museum, the pride of Jersey - The Steam Clock, Blow-carting...
Recommend St Helier to others
