Family-friendly historical attractionsElizabeth Castle
Only 2 minutes from the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel in Jersey, is the magnificent medieval Elizabeth Castle in St. Aubin’s Bay. The castle was built in the 1590s and children will love the daily re-enactment of how life was at the castle during the 16th century. When the tide is low, you can stroll along the causeway to reach the ramparts.
