Heartache & Heroism

5 Days / 4 Nights Half Board

The Channel Islands fell under Nazi occupation during World War II. The hardship, the heartache and the heroism, their story is fascinating to say the least. We head over to the island of Jersey to discover the true story of life during the German occupation. A full day will be spent with a WWII tour guide, who will share a collection of fascinating wartime stories. You will also get the chance to visit the Jersey War Tunnels, an underground complex built by the Germans.


Your comfort is our priority and all travel arrangements have been made with this in mind. Comfort stops will always be planned en route for lunch/refreshments. We will arrive at the hotel in the late afternoon, where your luggage will be taken to your room (unless otherwise specified) and you will have plenty of time to freshen up before the evening meal. Return travel will follow a similar schedule.

Your Hotel: Pomme D'Or Hotel, St. Helier

Just a 10 minute walk from the beach overlooking Liberation Square and the yacht marina, the 4-star Pomme d’Or is located in the heart of Jersey. Each newly refurbished elegant room includes a private bathroom with luxury toiletries.. Plus, enjoy complimentary access to nearby Aquadome Leisure Centre with pool, sauna and steam room.

Please note there is a Single Supplement of £125 per person.
