The island of Jersey is among a handful of islands making up the Channel Islands. Jersey is a quasi-UK entity in that it is not a part of the United Kingdom yet the UK is responsible for its defence.
UK currency is widely accepted on the island despite it issuing its own bank notes and coins.
To visit the island, people have the option of taking a ferry or flying into Jersey Airport (JER). Originally opened in 1937, Jersey Airport has seen a few facelifts and now enjoys frequent service from carriers FlyBE, bmibaby, and British Airways.
History enthusiasts will find the Jersey War Tunnels particularly interesting. This large underground museum shows what life may have been like if the Germans had been victorious in WWII.
Explore the castles designed to protect the island from French invasion. Mount Orgueil Castle is an intricate network of passageways, rooms, and stairs that can take hours to explore.
Jersey has quite a few museums including the Battle of Flowers Museum, The Pallot Steam, Motor & General Museum, Channel Islands Museum, and the Maritime Museum.
