St. Helier, Jersey blends the old world charm of this historic island with a cutting edge finanace industry, international diversity and culture, entertainment, education, sport and tourism. St. Helier is the cultural, legal and fiscal center of the Island.
Jersey’s significant and well-regulated financial services sector has supported the island through tough economic times, staving off the worst effects of the downturn felt elsewhere in the UK and the rest of Europe. Whilst unemployment is at an all time high, the island continues to prosper in difficult times. Jersey has no government debt and a £626m strategic reserve putting the Island on a strong economic footing.
King Street and Queen Street serve as the centerpiece of Jersey’s retail presence. The historic town markets and the newly created Liberty Wharf mall add to the retail mix which together with the many secondary retail streets creates a vibrant and popular destination.
King Street and Queen Street
King Street and Queen Street are Jersey’s premier and pedestrianised retail location and is home to numerous internationally recognised retailers and global brands. King Street is close to the prime pitch of the financial services sector.
Liberty Wharf is Jersey’s only covered shopping and leisure centre. It opened in autumn 2010 and overlooks St Helier Marina. It offers a mix of UK brands and independent Jersey boutiques including: M&S Home, Hotel Chocolat, Rococo Art & Gifts, Eclectic Fashions, Momo Fish Spa, Costa Coffee, Exquisite and Pasty Presto.
