St. Aubin Travel




Welcome to City of St. Aubin



If you are visiting the island of Jersey and are looking for a place to spend a very enjoyable day, that place is likely to be St. Aubin. This is a charming fishing village situated at the end of the bay from the island's capital city of Saint Helier.

When making St. Aubin travel plans it will be easy to find enough to do to fill an entire day trip. For example, the day can begin or end at the Parish Hall, which was once the railway station. This is now the seat of local government and the trail head for the Railway Walk. This is a wonderful trail that uses the old railway that ran between St. Aubin and La Corbiere (the extreme south-western point of Jersey, in St. Brelade). Travelers could easily start or finish their day with a gentle walk along this scenic trail.

 




Features Rated by St. Aubin Locals


Of course, one of the most appealing sites in the town is St. Aubins Fort residing in the bay and just outside of the St. Aubin harbor. This is only accessible at low tide, so visitors hoping to explore it will need to find the causeway that takes them to the entrance, and time their stay accordingly. This fort is still in excellent condition and all visitors are allowed to visit the tower, ramparts and the vast majority of the remaining structure.

The fort gives a good view of the town, but travelers might also head up to St. Aubin on the Hill, which is the Anglican church completed in 1892. It is considered one of the finest examples of Victorian Gothic architecture, and contains the only Pre-Raphaelite window that was designed and created by William Morris and Sir Edward Burne-Jones (founders of the artistic movement). This church sits on a hill overlooking the harbor and also gives a gorgeous view.
