Jersey Pottery

Outside of the capital, Gorey Village hosts Jersey Pottery’s vast showroom and factory exhibition centre. Jersey Pottery is renowned for its exquisite ceramics - plates, cups and bowls. Jersey Pottery products make for beautiful home decor items and gifts.


St Helier is the main focal point for shopping. Despite its small stature it has a good mix of retail stores featuring familiar high street brands as well as a wealth of independent smaller shops and boutiques, all within safe and easy walking distance of each other. The pedestrian precincts include King Street, where Voisins and De Gruchy department stores can be found. Queen Street, Bath Street and particularly Halkett Street are all go-to spots for designer labels. The small boutiques and men’s clothing shops take up much of the area. Popular specialities of the island when it comes to souvenirs, and a little self-indulgence, are jewellery, pearls, unique local pottery, homemade fudge and of course the famous knitwear. All of this can be found across the island. Jersey only has a 5 per cent Goods and Services Tax compared to the United Kingdom’s 17.5 per cent. It should be noted, however, that some items such as clothing can be a little more expensive than on the mainland.
