  • Fill in your Basket

    The Market at Saint Helier is a colourful and joyful place where you can post your letters (post office), have a nice cup of tea, or have some fish'n chips, buy flowers for your Valentine, or a Birthday cake, or simply walk around and do your daily shopping.

  • Tide!

    St Helier, and all of Jersey I guess, has one of the largest tide flows I've ever seen. When it's in it is right on the front but it disappears leaving what looks like a lunar surface when it goes out.Good beachcombing opportunities?

  • Indoor market.

    Good place to shop for a picnic, fresh fruit and veg are great, or gifts to take home. A couple of cafes serving tasty food as well.Excellent place to visit when the weather is not so good.

    First time in a Portuguese restaurant outside of Portugal.Very impressed with the food and friendly service. Good vegetarian choices for Mrs B. and a bewildering selection for me.Slightly more expensive than usual but is well worth it.

Saint Helier Nightlife

  • bonio's Profile Photo

    by bonio Written Oct 3, 2006

    St Helier was not exactly teeming with places for beer drinkers.
    Two places I did find and recommend for a decent pint are

    Lamplighter - Mulcaster Street.
    and
    Prince of Wales - Hilgrove Lane.

    Both can be found in the town centre and sell several real ales, neither appeared to sell food.

    The most interesting way to the castle is on the "puddleduck" - it's an amphibious craft and the journey takes around 10 mins if the tide is in or 5 mins if not. For more enjoyment go when the tide is in!Cost of a return journey (2006) £5.40 for adults.
