Treasures of the Channel Islands: An Accessible Week in Jersey


 
Travel & Tourism
The Island of Jersey may only be a short hop over the Channel, but it feels like a world away with its beautiful beaches, pretty countryside and old-world charm.

A popular tourist destination, there are plenty of activities laid on here to keep the kids happy so that you can enjoy some well-deserved relaxation, and the best part is that many of the sites on the island offer good disabled access. Holidays to Jersey can be really inclusive, so let me and my team put a package together for you that will make the most of all the accessible sights the island has to offer.

Fly or Drive and Take the Ferry

While flying to Jersey is quick and easy, it’s worth considering letting us put together a package for you that involves taking your car on the ferry so that you can drive when you get there. It is a small island and the public bus service is good, but if you want to see the sights and check out a few of its beautiful beaches, having access to a car is a great advantage.

We can arrange a place for you and your car on the ferry from Poole or Portsmouth. The journey takes around four and a half hours from Poole and 10 hours from Portsmouth.

Where to Stay

My advice for a great family-friendly accommodation option is the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, which also has the benefit of great disabled access. Holidays for kids at the Radisson Blu are full of fun, and we’ve had great feedback from clients we’ve sent there. From the free board games to the indoor swimming pool, they know how to keep the kids happy. Grown-ups will appreciate the great restaurant – where, incidentally, the kids eat free!

The hotel features two types of accessible rooms, both Standard, with either double or single beds. The Standard Inland Room features a wheel-in shower, handrails and wider doors.

What to Do

One of the nicest ways to pass the time in Jersey is to watch the kids playing on the beach while you enjoy a Jersey cream tea at one of the many beach side cafés on the island. But if you want to get a bit more active, there is plenty to do on the island with the kids.

• Durrell Wildlife Park With a wide range of animals to gaze at and lots of interactive activities, kids will love learning more about wildlife at Jersey’s only zoo. From monkeys to flamingos, playgrounds and keeper talks, there is load here to ensure a good day out. Most of the Park is accessible to wheelchair users and motor scooters, and wheelchairs can be rented if required. • Les Mielles Gold & Country Club The FunZone here has a range of activities for kids to enjoy, from a giant inflatable slide (open from April onwards) to laser clay pigeon shooting, bungee trampolines, and space ball gyroscopes. • Jersey War Tunnels A fascinating journey back in time to when Jersey was occupied by the Nazis during World War II. The museum is set in tunnels built by those enslaved by the Nazis to create an underground hospital. It is a truly gripping insight into Jersey’s turbulent past. The tunnels themselves are fully accessible by wheelchair, although the Garden of Reflection and War Trail are not.

Accessibility on the Beach

Jersey has worked hard to ensure that its most inviting feature, its beaches, also have good disabled access. Holidays to Jersey wouldn’t be complete without a trip on to the sand, so the charity BeachAbility has created specially designed, ballooned wheelchairs which work perfectly on the beach and other rough ground. They are available for visitors to use.

With so much for the family to do here and so much of it adapted for disabled access, holidays in Jersey are so relaxing that after we’ve put together one great week on the island, you’ll be back asking us to plan another.

Philip Scott is the owner and founder of Can be Done, a fully licensed UK tour operator specialising in disabled access holidays across the world for individuals and groups who are travelling with a handicap. With over 31 years’ experience organising long and short breaks for disabled travellers, Philip has built a reputation for helping his clients select hotels and accommodation that offer high standards of accessibility to ensure that those with special needs can experience truly relaxing and carefree holidays.
