Jersey isn't just the largest of the Channel Islands, it's also the most popular with holidaymakers. This idyllic island has plenty to offer tourists all year round. While the summer months welcome beach-goers and families, the winter months are ideal for ramblers and windsurfers. Among the island's many fine attractions is Les Landes Racecourse, which is situated in the far northwest of the island. The beautiful west of Jersey - which is also home to the Les Mielles Nature Reserve - is packed with exquisite guesthouses and hotels, making life easy for first-time visitors.
Home of the Jersey Race Club
Les Landes Racecourse was built in 1961 to be the new home of the renowned Jersey Race Club, which itself dates back to the 1830s. The magnificent site in the north-west of Jersey looks out over the ocean, offering superb views of Grosnez Castle and the other Channel Isles.
The racecourse hosts nine lively race days throughout the summer months, welcoming plenty of enthusiastic supporters. There's a modern viewing bank from which to watch the races, as well as a number of bars and food outlets. As you'd expect, the racecourse also houses its own bookmaker.
Tailored Corporate Events
Horse racing is an incredibly popular backdrop for corporate days out, and luckily Les Landes Racecourse offers tailored events on race days. Corporate guests enjoy the very best of the members' facilities, receiving a welcome drink on the terrace before being shown to lunch in the marquee, which offers superb views of the finishing line.
