Jersey RFC may only recently have made waves on the UK rugby radar, but the Island has been a world-class holiday and short-break destination for many years.
With its unspoiled landscape and unique blend of British and French influences, Jersey really is a place where you can get away from it all. Relax and enjoy the famed hospitality of the people, and lose yourself in the Island's winding lanes or on our breathtaking coast.
Culture vultures will discover history at every turn, walkers will be captivated by the Island's stunning natural beauty, and families can relax without a care on pristine beaches. Jersey is also the ideal place to clear your head, indulge in some exhilarating outdoor sports - rugby's not the only one - or simply live the life!
With Jersey RFC taking on some of the game's biggest names in the RFU Championship and British & Irish Cup again this season, there is the perfect opportunity to build a holiday or weekend away around a match at JRFC's home ground in St Peter.
Perhaps the first port-of-call for anyone considering a trip to the Island should be www.jersey.com/rugby - part of the information-packed site operated by Jersey Tourism, that will have many of the answers that you are looking for.
