Elizabeth Castle (Saint Helier)

  • Information

    Construction was started on Elizabeth Castle in the 16th century and it is located on a tidal island.

    Access to the castle is via a causeway from St Helier at low tide, or on a castle ferry. The ferries are wading vehicles that can reach the castle regardless of tide height, weather permitting. A one-way trip when the tide is high takes about 15 minutes.

    The site is a museum and among the historical displays is the regimental museum of the Royal Jersey Militia that holds several centuries of military memorabilia. There is also a museum that discusses the evolution of cannons and fortifications that holds several pieces from the nineteenth century, and earlier.

    Every Sunday through the season when the castle is open, a team of Historical Interpreters recreate the garrison of 1781, at the time of the battle of Jersey. They give displays of musket and cannon firing, and civilian life.
