This is a fairly short trip, but remember to bring your sea legs as it can get rough. Check in is 1hour before sailings, but you are standing around in queues ( ticket, passport control, boarding ) for that hour and at times very frustrating. It would more sense to allow boarding as people progressed through the checks, reducing that mad panic getting on and off.Read More Read Less

"Insufficient and wrong information"
The information regarding the travel documents required to travel from Granville to Jersey for EU citizens is incorrect in that it does not list national identity cards as valid documents. The check in times shown (opening and closing) are not specific and thus not helpful.Read More Read Less
Located on the Cotentin Peninsular in the north west of France, the port town of Granville lies on the English Channel coast and at the mouth of the Bosq and Pointe du Roc. Built on reclaimed land from the sea is the lower town. The upper town is surrounded by 15th century ramparts. Overlooking the town is the Romanesque/early Gothic style church of Notre Dame du Cap Lihou which was built between 1441 and 1796. It is an imposing structure and is perhaps one of the reasons why the town has managed to retain its strong military and religious links to the past. Also in the town for visitors to enjoy is the Musee Christian Dior which is located in the fashion designer's childhood home, Villa Les Rhumbs, and also the town's museum which contains documents enabling visitors to learn about the history of the town over the centuries. Granville offers a number of activities to keep visitors entertained ranging from fishing to casinos. There are also plenty of waterfront restaurants serving excellent local produce including fresh locally caught seafood.
A ferry can be taken from Granville to Jersey in the Channel Islands with a journey time of around 1 hour and 20 minutes.
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.
