From Easter this year the Parish is providing a series of free weekly two hour guided walks which will be 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 Remi Couriard for 'The Art and Architecture of St Helier' on Thursday 18th April. The walk commences by viewing paintings within the Town Hall, and then the period of 200 years of architecture around the town will be explored - from the grandeur of the Victorian banks to the houses of merchants. 'As architects, they begin their vision with sketches to explore ideas. With artists, their vision can be inspired with an object or scenery.'
No booking is necessary - simply turn up at the Town Hall on the day for a 10.30am start.
(Please note there will be no walk on Liberation Day.)
For more information on any of the walks please telephone Tom on 07797 780868.
