Autumn Walking Week

With cliffpaths, railway walks and an array of winding country lanes, Jersey holds a lot for walkers to explore.

Arthur Lamy is an experienced Blue Badge Guide who take visitors off the beaten track to discover a hidden side of Jersey.

Arthur, if someone is only here for a weekend, what should be on their must-do list?

Don't miss eating seafood by the sea, and try to explore the island a little on foot or on a bicycle because that's the way to get a real feel of a place.

As a blue badge guide, what do you add to people's experience of Jersey?

Hopefully, my blue badge guide colleagues and I give people an insight into their destination in a way that's understandable and engaging. It all adds to their Jersey experience and we hope it makes their holiday more complete.

What's your favourite Jersey spot?

I have so many. One beautiful view is from the top of Tête de Fremont overlooking Bonne Nuit Bay. You can see out to the French coast, Guernsey and Sark, the Ecréhous, Cheval Rock and La Crête fort. And for a glimpse of real Jersey history, walking into the National Trust-owned Morel Farm is incredible. It's like stepping back a hundred years in time.

What would you like people to take away from Jersey?

The idea that Jersey is a fascinating place on many different fronts, from its scenery to the stories of the what makes Jersey special - why our road signs are in French but we speak English, why the island has a cosmopolitan feel, but our way of life is so relaxed.  Above all, I'd like people to feel it's a place they'd like to go back to. There's always more to discover.

Jersey Autumn Walking Week runs from 13th -  20th September with a schedule of guided walks and explorations, headed up by Jersey experts like Arthur Lamy. To find out more about Autumn Walking Week click here.
