Come and explore Gorey, a cheerful assortment of small businesses, restaurants and hotels set in a labyrinth of tiny lanes.

Hear about the oyster fishing, how the castle was captured by treachery, and how local boy, Harry Vardon, won six British Open golf tournaments. See where the man who captured the Rosetta Stone lived, and where novelist George Eliot entertained her married lover George Lewes.

Walk down New Road, Old Road and Limpet Lane.Then follow the route of the Jersey Eastern Railway back to our starting point.

Did you know:

Once there were seven boat yards at Gorey, stretching from the golf links to the tiny bay behind Mont Orgueil Castle?

The largest ship built at Gorey was the 365 ton barque 'Montrose', built by George Asplet in 1861.
