We went across to the castle on the amphibious vehicle and spent nearly 5 hours here. The talk and demonstrations by the 'sergeant' and the 'soldiers wife' were excellent and very informative. Not to be missed if you go to St Helier.

Stunning building in a brilliant setting. Approach by causeway or bus boat. Definitely worth a few hours.

You can walk to the castle at low tide, or take the amphibious "ferry" at any state of the tide. There are two museums in the parade ground of the castle....the one on the history of Jersey is very good, the other deals with explosives/guns....More

Can be walked to when the tide is out. Either way the entrance fee includes the amphibian 'boat' which we took when the tide was indeed out. When the tide is in no doubt nice and smoothe, but we had a bumpy 10mins. Still worth...More

This place is a great little visit. The transport vehicles to take you over is great and only takes around 10 minutes. On low tide it can be reached by walking.

we went over to the castle on the amphibious bus but could easily have walked over the causeway as the tide was out. The castle itself is much larger than I expected. There was a presentation in the parade ground where 'volunteers' were drilled in...More

Trainers will be OK,it is slippery if seaweed is on the walkway but you can walk on the sand and depends on how fast you want to take it but no more than 15 minutes on a slow pace
