The trip from Weymouth to Jersey and back was a very easy and relaxing experience. Having never done the ferry trip before the staff made everything from boarding with my car to directing me to wherever I wanted to be on board very straightforward. A good way to travel.

We had two great trips with Condor Ferries - Weymouth~Jersey and Jersey~St Malo booked through Direct Ferries website which was easy to navigate. The ferrys' seats were comfortable although we also spent time on the outside decks on departure and arrivals in ports. Staff were friendly and helpful, check-in was easy and quick, luggage is stored and any correspondence I had with Condor Ferries before the trip was answered quickly.

Weymouth is a town in Dorset, England, situated on a sheltered bay – Weymouth Bay – and the natural harbour formed by the mouth of the River Wey on the English Channel coast. The town is eight miles south of Dorchester, and just north of the Isle of Portland.
Weymouth had long been a port before the Georgians popularized it as a resort. It's possible that a ship unloading a cargo here in 1348 first brought the Black Death to English shores, and it was from Weymouth that John Endicott sailed in 1628 to found Salem in Massachusetts.
A few buildings survive from these pre-Georgian times. But Weymouth's most imposing architectural heritage stands along the Esplanade, a dignified range of bow-fronted and porticoed buildings gazing out across the graceful bay.
Jersey is a British crown dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. Along with the Guernsey it forms the grouping known as the Channel Islands.
The defence of all these islands is the responsibility of the United Kingdom. However, Jersey is not part of the UK, nor the European Union, but is rather a separate possession of the Crown.
Jersey’s prehistoric period produced a rich legacy of artefacts. Remnants of a great French forest that existed over 10,000 years ago, when the Island was part of the continent can still be seen today at St Ouen when there is a low tide. Flints and crude stone tools were left by hunters in La Cotte a la Chevre (Goat’s cave) now perched 60 feet (18 m) above the sea level on the north coast of St Ouen and La Cotte de St Brelade is one of the most important Palaeolithic sites in Europe.
