Day Two - Jersey - 13th July 2011 - Liberation Square

One of the main sites of St Helier, is that of Liberation Square and the bus station which is just along from the square, and called Liberation Station.

The historical focus here is the statue which represents Liberation after the five year German Occupation from 1940-1945. All around the Island there are references to the proud Islanders and their experience during the Second World War.

After the turbulence of War, the Square is a focus point for meeting and enjoying refreshments or an ice cream; or perhaps purchasing a ticket for an open air bus trip around the Island, as we did.
