Jersey is a Crown Dependency of the UK located just off the coast of France. It is a hugely popular tourist destination. There is no shortage of accommodation, and the place can very easily feel like a particularly-laid back slice of English countryside. With better weather. Despite its compact size, it has a wealth of quiet roads which are perfect for exploring.

Saint Helier, with about 28,000 people, is the capital and where most ferries dock. Sailing is a popular activity, and the island is a perfect stop if travelling along the coast of Normandy in France. The spectacular Mont Orgueil Castle overlooks the town of Gorey.
