Outline of Jersey

The location of Jersey
An enlargeable map of the Bailiwick of Jersey

The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to Jersey:

JerseyBritish Crown dependency[1] located in the Channel Islands off the coast of Normandy.[2][3] As well as the island of Jersey itself, the bailiwick includes the nearly uninhabited islands of the Minquiers, Écréhous, the Pierres de Lecq[4] and other rocks and reefs. Together with the Bailiwick of Guernsey it forms the grouping known as the Channel Islands. The defence of all these islands is the responsibility of the United Kingdom. However, Jersey is part of neither the UK nor the European Union; rather, like the Isle of Man, it is a separate possession of the Crown. Jersey belongs to the Common Travel Area.
