Mont Orgueil online: information and bookings

History comes to life at Mont Orgueil Castle, which for 600 years protected Jersey against French invasion. Explore the network of staircases, towers and rooms to discover hidden treasures.

Mont Orgueil Castle is a wonderful place to visit, every time you vist you'll discover a staircase you've not seen before opening up into a room where you'll find something new. Climb the turrets to find the medieval ‘wheel of urine’, and descend into the basement to experience the 'witchcraft' exhibit. Life-size wooden soldiers guard the castle from attack and 'the wounded man' statue shows the fate that could befall those fighting to save the castle from invasion.

Take a look at the Time Team at Mont Orgueil, which digs deeper into the recent archaeological excavations at Mont Orgueil Castle by Channel 4’s Time Team.
