Take a stroll around St.Aubin, once the commercial heart of Jersey. Hear about merchants, benefactors, privateers and fishermen. Find out how the village grew, the coming of the first island bus service and the railway. See the old elementary school, the church of St.Aubin on the Hill with its window created by Edward Burne-Jones; the Pre-Raphaelite artist, the pub where Karl Marx stayed and the ancient seat of the Seigneurs of Francfief.

Did you know :

Like many other coastal villages, St.Aubin takes its name from the 6th century Bishop of Angers, who was supposed to protect you from pirates? This is rather ironic, as Jerseys very successful privateering fleet was based here during the English Civil War.
