Day 2 Christmas Eve, St Helier
Just 19 miles from France, Jersey, 'the island of flowers', effortlessly combines European sophistication with traditional British charm. This morning we'll discover the festive face of the island on an included walking tour. Meander through the streets of St Helier, illuminated with brilliant white lights and decked with Christmas trees. Visit the Nativity Scene and perhaps take time to browse the boutiques and markets for those last-minute gifts or some VAT- free bargains. Later, we return to the hotel for a mince pie served with fresh Jersey cream. After dinner, you could make your own way to the local church for Midnight Mass.
Day 3 Christmas Day, St Helier
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast, after which you may choose to take a stroll down to the harbour before lunch. Back at the hotel, a traditional Christmas carvery-style lunch will be served. Father Christmas will make a visit this afternoon, and then there will be time for you to spend at leisure before a buffet dinner is served this evening.
Day 4 Boxing Day, Island Tour
On a morning tour of the island we'll pass by Corbière Lighthouse, a striking white structure perched dramatically on a rocky headland and connected to the mainland by a causeway. We then continue to the surfer's paradise of St Ouen's Bay, on the west of the island, and the soaring cliffs and tempting sands of Greve de Lecq on the northern coast. On the nearest headland to France lies the village of Gorey, our final stop today. Admire the picture-perfect harbour, watched over by the spectacular castle of Mont Orgueil, which protected Jersey against French invasion for more than 600 years. Back at the hotel, enjoy a light lunch and an afternoon at leisure. Dinner is served at the hotel this evening.Meals included: B,L,D
