"Crossing from St Helier to Granville"
My wife and I were touring with our bikes which involved taking five ferries one of which was the Manche Iles Express, we arrived at the port in St Helier amid lots of French returning from a day excursion it was very busy. First problem was I had failed to book the bikes with heavy panniers on the boat however the gentleman at the ticket office soon resolved that problem, next problem was to get the bikes up a narrow gangplank again no problem two strong chaps sprang into action and in a blink of an eye the bikes were securely stored. Also when we arrived in Granville the bike were waiting on the quay for us. We had a smooth quick passage, can't fault the excellent service. Of all the ferries I booked in advance Direct Ferries was the easiest process, the mistake with the bikes was down to me.Read More Read Less
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.
The French coastal town of Granville is located on a rocky headland on the far eastern point of Mont-Saint-Michel Bay in the north west of France. Visitors to the town will find a picturesque long beach in the centre of the town, and a port and harbour surrounded by houses dating back to the 19th century. At the end of the beach there is staircase leading to the gardens and 19th century 'Villa les Rhumbs' where Christian Dior and family spent each summer. The famous fashion designer was born in the town in 1905 and his house is now a museum dedicated to his creations. The town's most religious monument, and a popular attraction, is the 17th century Church of Notre-Dame which overlooks the sea and is located in the town's historic centre. The church is perhaps best known for is modern stained glass windows. Also in the town is the Church of Saint-Paul and a small protestant temple.
A ferry can be taken from Granville to Jersey in the Channel Islands with a journey time of around 1 hour and 20 minutes.
