Validity of "old" Jersey notes  (4 Answers)

Going to Jersey in a few days, and sorting my currency collection, I found some leftover one and five pound notes.
These are the pre-2010 generation, serie 3 notes.
A search on the net gives conflicting info...are these notes still currently accepted in shops?
Could I have them exchanged in a bank, or should I scrap them?

jersey in december  (2 Answers)

Hello, my partner and I love jersey after 2 trips in the last couple of years. We are thinking about coming for some Christmas shopping the week before Christmas. Just wondering if anyone has some tips for us about that time if year? None of the timetables are out for ferries to France or Guernsey so wondering if day trips are usually available at that time if year? Thanks for the help

Jersey or Guernsey for 8 hours?  (2 Answers)

Hello, I couldn't pick the Channel Islands as an option so went for Jersey. We go to Poole regularly (so don't really mind which time of year but need to book within a week to get the offer) and can get a day return on the cat to either Jersey or Guernsey for only £15 each on foot.
Sounds crazy I know; 3-4 hours there then 8 hours around and 3-4 hours back will be a long day but it'll be a good taster (we could go back with a car next time).
Would anyone have a strong opinion on which island we'd more fill our time in on foot for 8 hours? We could consider taking our bicycles or hiring or simply using local busses.
We like good local seasonal food, cider & ale, crafts and art & design, museums, walking, caostlines, we'd consider getting on another boat again for a trip around the coast. Just generally wandering about seeing what takes our fancy but also having somewhere to shelter if the weather turns.
Thank you.

Jersey in August  (2 Answers)

Hi!

I´m thinking about to go to Jersey for 3-4 weeks in August. I´ve never been there but I heard it should be a nice Island.
I spoked to a woman who´s been there working in a hotel for a couple of months, she said it was easy to get a job in the summer, even though you have´nt a special education. Does someone know if there is anything available for about 4 weeks, or if there is some kind of courses to take, for example surfing courses? I´ve tried to search on the internet but I thought it may be better to ask in a forum.

1 week in Jersey, Channel Islands, UK  (3 Answers)

We are planning a trip to Jersey in October (probably staying at Merton) and plan on staying for a week. Is that two long with two boys (8 and 10)? If so, can we easily find day trips off the island to interesting places on the mainland? Any advise where to take day trips? Also, how difficult is it to get into London from Jersey (prefer not to fly - not a fan of those small planes). Any advise for a week in Jersey would be appreciated.

New Years EVE  (1 Answer)

Hello

This is a similar post to one earlier but me & my wife will be staying in St Helier over New Year.

Can you please tell me if the center of St Helier has any organised New Years Eve party's or fire works etc like back in the UK. I guess there would be.

We are trying to find out if the Hotel we are staying at is doing anything special on New Years Eve but to be honest we would prefer to be in the St Helier center with the locals if there is any action.

Also, can you recommend any decent restaurants such as Fish, Italian or Indian or any that are unique to Jersey? Its our wedding anniversary so a nice romantic meal is required.

Many thanks

Regards
Gary

Jersey over Christmas  (2 Answers)

Hi there,

We are planning to spend the long Christmas weekend (24 to 28 December) on the island of Jersey. We have been to the Channel Islands before, but never during this time of the year, so we were just wondering a couple of things:

First, will everything close down on Christmas and Boxing Day? (We will be based on St Helier and we are mostly concerned about restaurants and public transport)

Also, is it possible to take a day trip from Jersey to Guernsey by boat? (We were thinking of doing this either on Boxing Day or Saturday 27)

Thank you all

Jersey accomodation for wheelchair user  (4 Answers)

Hi folks, I'm currently helping to organise a holiday to Jersey for my parents for June. I'd love to find a hotel that's comfortable but doesn't cost the earth and also need a room that is accesible for a wheelchair user. My dad has MS and therefore cannot walk anything more than around 20 steps at a time- stairs are also an issue.

They're keen to return to jersey after holidaying there many years ago- any hotel and area recommendations will be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time,

Best Wishes,
Tierna
