Getting To Know Jersey – Cruise Port Guide
St Helier is one of twelve parishes on the small and hugely popular island of Jersey and this is where your cruise ship will dock, although larger vessels will drop anchor and take guests ashore via tenders. Our Jersey cruise port guide is a bite size chunk of useful information on how to best plan your time here.
Jersey is always a popular stop and it can get very busy during the summer season. There’s a range of things to see and do, with everything from kayaking to pearl picking and fine dining on offer. St Helier is easily accessible on foot, but if you would like to try something different, why not use the Le Petit Train service which runs frequently throughout the day from Liberation Square. It takes roughly 30 minutes to get from St Helier to St Aubin using this service which also has live commentary.
Don’t miss the Central Market, which is packed with fresh fish, fruit, vegetables, local crafts and more. The market has served the people of St Helier for more than 200 years, it’s open 6 days per week (closed on Sunday’s) and can be found on the corner of Beresford Street and Halkett Place. There’s also the Beresford Street Market which is between Beresford Street and Minden Place.
