A busy town and the most populous parish, St Helier is also the Island's capital and main retail center. While it offers a thoroughly modern shopping experience, you'll find that many of the old French street names survive, and many shop fronts still bear the names of their founders.
The town is named after the Island's first and most famous saint, who lived and preached in Jersey in the sixth century. Among its highlights are the parish church, with its mix of architectural styles, and the Central Market, dating from 1882 and teeming with fresh local produce, meats, fish and flowers.
The city is also home to the Island's parliament, which sits in the States Chamber in the Royal Square and is one of the oldest assemblies in the Commonwealth.
