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 Captain Brian Nibbs for 'The Harbourmaster's History of St Helier Harbour' on Thursday 11th April. This walk gives the opportunity to join a former harbourmaster, now a Tourism Bronze Award Guide, for a pleasant stroll around St Helier's harbour. Hear about its history, nautical traditions and recent developments. The tour explores some of the lesser-known areas of the harbour and is interspersed with the occasional maritime anecdote.
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.
