Geoffrey Jersey Bronze Badge Tourist Guide - 2020.

A Welshman by birth plus upbringing, I settled in Jersey with my Spanish wife over 40 years ago.

Bio

A Welshman by birth plus upbringing, I settled in Jersey with my Spanish wife over 40 years ago. Then spent my whole career at Victoria College, a splendid independent boys’ school, most of it as Head of Modern Languages, teaching Spanish along with French to A Level.  

For the last 4years I have worked each week as a volunteer guide with Jersey Heritage. Most Fridays at Mont Orgueil, our magnificent Medieval Castle, and am a frequent visitor to our 3 other main sites: Elizabeth Castle, the 16th century island fortress, then also Hougue Bie; the 5,000-year-old Neolithic Dolmen with a passage grave; and Hamptonne, Jersey country life museum which dates back to the 15 century. I am well acquainted with the history of each of them!

I am equally at ease speaking English, Spanish and French with acquired reputation for being enthusiastic, energetic and entertaining. I have travelled the world extensively, love places, people finding it easy to make new friends.

My new found interest in History, especially locally, means that on weekly hikes around the island with friends, during occasional dinner parties I can be relied upon as someone who will always have an amusing story to tell. It has often occurred to me that the Welsh were born to preach or to teach. Working as a guide gives me the best of both worlds.

I am often called upon to translate and interpret for local law firms and for the States ofJersey and have made several appearances at both Royal Court, Magistrate’s Court, the Prison, and the police station.

I am at a time in my life where my time is my own. I love showing off our beautiful island to visitors and will always do my very best to make their stay with us something to remember. Jersey has had a tourist industry since early Victorian times, it is easy to see why. This British South Sea Island in the Bay of Mt. St. Michel has everything.

We guides are here to make sure you enjoy the very best of it all.
