Heritage

The Channel Islands Heritage Festival celebrates a group of small islands with a big history.

The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by Nazi forces during World War II. The Jersey War Tunnels are evocative reminders of this turbulent time in the islands' past. On 9th May each year, the Channel Islands celebrate Liberation Day with a variety of events, parades and entertainment.

Elizabeth Castle, which sits on a rocky islet in Jersey's St Aubin's Bay, has defended the island for more than 300 years and is the perfect place to explore the island's history. Mont Orgeuil in Gorey protected Jersey for over 600 years against French invasion and brings history to life with a network of staircases, towers and secret rooms.

You will also be able to explore museums and lighthouses, take guided walks, go on treasure hunts, cycle rides, kayak adventures and vintage bus tours plus much, much more.
