Standing majestically over the fishing village of Gorey, Mont Orgueil provides a dramatic backdrop to any event. Built in the 13th century to protect the Island against the French, this jewel in Jersey's crown is one of the best-preserved castles in Britain and one of the most photographed sites in the Island.

The Medieval Great Hall

With a beaten earth floor, vaulted roof and arched windows looking down to the sea and across to the coast of France, it offers an impressive location for dinners, drinks parties and presentations.
