Jersey Attractions…

Posted by

I haven’t done very many posts featuring Jersey in the Channel Islands, so here is a photo from a few years ago of the Living Legend family attraction which unfortunately closed in 2016. But of course there are many attractions still to visit and two which come to mind are firstly, the Jersey War Tunnels and secondly, Jersey Pottery. The Tunnels were built by the German army in the Second World War as an underground hospital between 1941 and 1945. They total a kilometer, 1000m, in length. These are an interesting way to understand how WW2 affected the Channel Islands. A completely different interest are the beautiful designs and products of Jersey Pottery. Here, you can see the Pottery being made, from throwing to glazing and it is possible to glaze your own piece, which you can take home with you. Both of these attractions are very well worth visiting.

For more information on the Jersey Tunnels see the Jersey Tunnels website and for Jersey Pottery see here. My previous Jersey miniblog is here.

Fun Tip: Also worth a visit is the Gerald Durrell zoo, Jersey Zoo now run by the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, where you can see wildlife conservation in action.
