Jersey: A brief history
Jersey is the largest of the five Channel Islands and has a unique blend of British and French influences. In its 45 square miles you will find an amazing array of historical, cultural and natural features.
St Helier is the capital of Jersey and is the beating heart of its economic success with a well-deserved reputation as one of the leading offshore financial centres in the world - over 45 global banks have a presence here as well as many other well-known companies.
The town itself has been in existence since Roman times, although the architecture is a fusion of the 18th and 21st centuries with glass and steel corporate headquarters nestling alongside brick and sandstone edifices that have stood for hundreds of years.
The harbour and beaches have always been at the core of life in St Helier and even though the fishing fleets are now a shadow of their former glory, luxury yachts jostle for position alongside busy passenger ferries from Britain and France.
Liberty Apartments is located right in the centre of St Helier, just minutes away from the sandy expanse of St Aubin's beach, the harbour areas, commercial and shopping districts. The Esplanade is minutes from the town centre and that is where you will find Liberty Apartments - right in the centre of everything that is Jersey.
