Find out about Jersey’s link with the English Crown, despite being so close to France; listen to Jèrriais (the Jersey language) being spoken; learn about the Island’s traditional farming industry and watch some fascinating archive footage of the early years of Jersey tourism. Admire a portrait of Lillie Langtry by Sir John Everett Millais.
Step inside the beautifully restored, gaslit, Victorian House and learn the story of a Victorian family in crisis as Dr Charles Ginestet abandons their beautiful home and flees to France to start a new life.
