Tours of St Helier
The Royal Square was the Old Market Place of St Helier 'Le Vier Marchi'. We start the tour from the ancient centre of our town, discovering the different centuries as we meander over this landscape.
Meet Sue your local tour guide on a guided walk around St Helier. The tour is a great way to experience and see a lot of St Helier over a short amount of time. Over 2 hours wander in the footsteps of the Jerseyman and see how the character of Jersey was formed in oh... so many different ways. From: Royalists & Parliamentarians; Georgians & Victorians; Fishing & cider; Shipbuilding & merchants; Kings & Queens

Every month Sue will guide you on a different Parish walk exploring the winding pathways, cliffs and roadways to discover the different personality behind each Parish.
What makes up the personality of each parish? Is it the people who live there? Is it the bricks and mortar that make up the homes? Is it the events that took place? Or is it the travellers who invaded from another Parish or land? Or is it all of the above and more! Join Sue on her walks as she explores the Parishes.
'Rambling in St John'
Take a walk around St John's Church then onto Sorel, Mourier Valley and the little hidden pathways in this area. We may meet the most famous residents of Mourier valley, the multi-horned Manx Loaghtan sheep and we will definitely hear the characterful red-billed Choughs. The views are spectacular with the flora and fauna to match. Hear about the work of the National Trust of Jersey and the Jersey National Park in this beautiful little gem of a headland and valley.
Also walk along the old occupation railway track as we head back to St John's church.
