Historic St Helier: Uncovering St Helier's French Connection : Guided Walk

From Easter this year the Parish has provided a series of free weekly two hour guided walks open to all comers. The aim is to encourage a greater knowledge of the Parish's rich history for the benefit of parishioners, as well as supporting Jersey's tourism industry - which will also assist the town's retail and hospitality sectors. The programme of walks has been devised by Tom Bunting, whose 'Murder, Muck and Mayhem' walk has been enjoyed by hundreds over the years, and will feature some of the Island's experienced and qualified Blue Badge Guides as well as experts on St Helier's maritime history and wartime experiences.

Join tour guide Clive Jones for 'Uncovering St Helier's French Connection' on Thursday 17th October. Discover the fascinating histories of St Helier's heroes and heroines, including the celebrated French authors Maitre Wace and Victor Hugo. The hidden histories of the Place du Marché will be revealed, and the Battle of Jersey, before wandering through the cobbled (and at one time riotous) land of the old French quarter.

These walks are proving extremely popular so don't miss out - please search for 'St Helier guided walk' at www.eventbrite.com to book your space.

For more information on any of the walks please telephone Tom on 07797 780868.
