Jersey: Culture and Arts

The Largest Channel Island

Jersey Culture and Arts

The culture and arts in Jersey embody the influence of many centuries of foreign occupation ranging from Vikings, Romans, French and English. From the ritual burial grounds of the Neolithic periods and the superb medieval castle of Mont Orgueil to the Samares Manor, a beautiful house dating back to Norman times, the people that settled in Jersey have made a significant influence to the rich colourful heritage. Nowadays, the culture and art scene in Jersey is a combination of historical landmarks and a wealth of English and French literature, the platform for modern arts. Jersey potteries and crafts feature strongly throughout the island.
