Open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday 10am to 4pm. History comes to life at Mont Orgueil Castle, which for over 600 years protected Jersey against French invasion. Explore the network of staircases, towers and secret rooms to discover hidden treasures. Every time you visit you'll discover a staircase you've not seen before opening up into a room where you'll find something new. Discover Hidden artwork commissioned to tell the story of the castle; Climb the turrets to find the medieval ‘wheel', and descend into the cellar to experience the exhibit. Life-size wooden soldiers guard the castle from attack and 'the wounded man' statue shows the fate that could befall those fighting to save the castle from invasion.

Loved this castle (bit hooked on them really). The views are stunning and you can feel the history of it. There are many steps so if you are less mobile perhaps not the place for you. Hidden treasures worth looking for - saying no more....More

Fantastic place to visit, loads of history and well worth spending a couple of hours to see everything, including all of the nooks and crannies of the castle. One word of advice, there are a LOT of steps so not really suitable for those for...More

Fantastic castle. Views from the roof are excellent. Lots of rooms to investigate and the explanatory film is well worth watching prior to looking around to understand how the castle developed. There is a cafe within the castle.

A large castle with a lot of rooms! Many passages and stairs to climb - right up to the roof (which offers great views of Jersey). It also has a small cafe (with extra seating downstairs). There’s also toilets throughout the castle, and a small...More

Although the weather was appalling, our visit to the castle was brilliant, our guide was informative and didn't let the weather get in the way of our tour. Such a beautiful Castle and so many facets to it. Highly recommend visiting.
