Overview

Open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday 10am to 4pm. History comes to life at Mont Orgueil Castle, which for over 600 years protected Jersey against French invasion. Explore the network of staircases, towers and secret rooms to discover hidden treasures. Every time you visit you'll discover a staircase you've not seen before opening up into a room where you'll find something new. Discover Hidden artwork commissioned to tell the story of the castle; Climb the turrets to find the medieval ‘wheel', and descend into the cellar to experience the exhibit. Life-size wooden soldiers guard the castle from attack and 'the wounded man' statue shows the fate that could befall those fighting to save the castle from invasion.

You could watch over to France from the top. There was some creepy corner and chamber in the castle, it frightened us. Anyway you could find a room, where you could try some old medieval dress. I liked the little gardens. I think it is...More

Loved this castle (bit hooked on them really). The views are stunning and you can feel the history of it. There are many steps so if you are less mobile perhaps not the place for you. Hidden treasures worth looking for - saying no more....More
