Introduction:

Clive is a Blue Badge Guide who has lived in Jersey for 24 years. After 36 years of explaining the intricacies of international finance to people in various parts of the world, he is quite comfortable uncovering Jersey and its history to visitors.
His particular interests are Jersey history (the quirkier the better) and, of course, the history of the finance industry in the Island. But like all Blue Badge Guides, he can adapt to the needs of his clients. As a former Chairman of the Jersey Heritage Trust, he can draw on a wide range of information.
He is qualified to guide to Blue Badge standard in French and German as well and is therefore quite happy to take groups or individuals out who prefer to experience Jersey in their own language. He was also appointed MBE in January 2016 for services to heritage in Jersey.

Special Interests:

Architecture

Jersey has a rich and highly individual mix of architectural styles, particularly in St Helier. A walking tour of the town can show all of these to the visitor.

Business & Finance

Are the phrases "tax haven", "paradis fiscal" and "Steueroase" justified? Learn about the history and real role of the finance industry today.

Castles & Palaces

Jersey is home to two royal castles, both of which were in use up until 1945. Tour "the castle you were never meant to see" and "the castle in the bay" where Captain Mulcaster slammed the door in the face of the French invaders.

History & Prehistory

Jersey has an interesting and very different history from that of the United Kingdom - indeed, Jersey isn't a part of the United Kingdom! Come on a town tour and learn how, in the late 18th century, we might have become part of France.

Museums

Jersey has two fine small museums - the Jersey Museum and the Maritime Museum - and a number of other sites where the stories of our past are told. Use a Blue Badge Guide to get the most out of a visit to them.

Politics & Government

Learn why Jersey isn't part of the UK and why an English law isn't a law in Jersey. On a pre-booked visit to the States Assembly, sit in the chamber where Jersey laws are made and understand how our system works.

Walking Tours

Walking tours of St Helier, Jersey's harbours and maritime history and Jersey's fine countryside.
