Hello! Many of you will surely visit Jersey in summer to make the most of its beaches! However, visiting Jersey in winter, and especially in December, is also a great experience!
What to do in Jersey in December?
First of all, let’s talk about Christmas markets! There are several ones, all over the island during December either in St Helier in the main square, by the sea at Greve de Lecq or in the countryside at Samares Manor with local producers, or you can also enjoy the exotic Norman market! I personally prefer the one in St Helier as it looks more festive.
Then for the more adventurous, you can enjoy the indoor ice-skating rink that is located in the dome of Fort Regent! Plus while going there you can admire the view over St Helier!
Also there are many Christmas shows in Jersey! There are really good shows produced at the Art Center. They are played by locals but honestly decoration and performance looks like Broadway! I watched the Wind and the Willows last week and was totally seduced by the universe and the songs! For outdoor shows, if the weather is nice, no doubt, you must attend the ‘Battle of flowers‘! This event takes place twice a year in Jersey, in August and December. Every parishes decorate a float with flowers on a the theme of their choice. My favourite float this year? The Flintstones float (I’m always a bit nostalgic about my childhood cartoons)!
