Elizabeth Castle Jersey has been protected for 300 years by this fortification built on an islet in St Aubin’s Bay. Twice a day this imposing castle is surrounded by the rising tide making it a truly spectacular venue. Due to the unique location of the castle, access is very dependent on the tide and weather. The castle ferry can operate at all times except when the tide is high and the wind is strong creating a rough sea. Please take advice from our staff when booking your function. For certain types of event only specific dates will be available.
