La Hougue Bie

The autumn equinox, when the sun passes directly over the earth’s equator, is one of those magical times of year; occurring just twice each year, the result is a day and night of equal length. On this day, around a dozen people gather at sunrise in the ancient burial chamber at La Hougue Bie, one of the ten oldest buildings in the world. Facing directly east, a beam of sunlight travels up the narrow passageway, illuminating the whole chamber. Soak up the magic of historic La Hougue Bie for yourself. With the surrounding trees turning a dusty shade of orange and autumn light casting its golden glow over the site, it’s a special time of year to visit.

Number 10 Restaurant and Bar

Number 10 is the brainchild of Jersey-born Joe Baker. You might recognise the young chef if you tuned in to watch The Great British Menu last year on BBC2. Joe is a true champion of the island’s local produce, making use of organic veg from the likes of Anneville Farm, locally-reared pork from John Hackett’s Farm in St. Brelade and razor clams foraged from the moonlike landscapes of the island’s south coast at low tide. With a cosy, candle-lit bar downstairs and a modern, relaxed restaurant upstairs, Number 10 is the perfect spot to hunker down on an autumnal evening for a night of fine wine and delicious dining.

Meet the people behind the place

With its own peculiar customs, quirks, laws and traditions, Jersey is a surprising little island. What better way to soak up Jersey culture than meeting its wonderful people? Head down to St. Ouens with local legend Kazz Padidar who will teach you how to safely identify the incredible variety of wild edible plants and seaweeds that you can find along Jersey’s shoreline or, follow in the footsteps of mammoth hunters with Nicky Mansell down at the island’s famous Palaeolithic site “La Cotte de St. Brelade.”

Cider Making with The Cider Maker & his Wife

La Robeline Cider are proud of their local roots, planting orchards around the island each winter and using only the best apples - and nothing else! - to produce their award-winning Cidre de Jérri come the autumn. Richard and Sarah, affectionately known as ‘The Cider Maker and his Wife’ are welcoming you to join them this autumn as they press the fruit to extract the juice to make their scrumptious cider. In the 19th century Jersey cider was a favourite mealtime tipple, particularly amongst farmers, across the UK - only after the second world war did exports cease. Make sure to follow in the suit of your great grandparents and reward yourself with a cold one after your hard work!

EVie Bikes

For an island of just nine by five miles, Jersey has over 500 miles of glorious country lanes to explore; and, undoubtedly, the best way to explore them is by bike. Use the EVie app to find an electric bike near you and you’ll soon be whizzing through tiny Green Lanes, riding past pretty granite farmhouses and cottages, or feeling the wind in your hair as you soak up the island’s dramatic coastline. With a little extra 'boost’ from your electric bike, you’ll easily be able to nip down (and back up!) into some of Jersey’s small, picturesque bays like Fliquet, La Coupe and Le Scez. Importantly, factor in a pit-stop and sample Jersey’s ‘legend-dairy’ ice cream!
