Coordinates: 49°13′12″N 2°09′54″W / 49.220°N 2.165°W / 49.220; -2.165 Living Legend is a tourist attraction in Jersey, consisting of a show detailing Jersey's history, an "adventure golf" course and a craft and shopping village.

The Jersey Experience[edit]

The show, entitled "The Jersey Experience", consists of three sections. The first is a section that visitors can walk around, set on a Victorian paddle steamer destined for St. Helier. It contains videos showing all the major events that occurred on Jersey during the previous century, a section on Jersey urban legends, and information on famous people who were born on or live on Jersey.

Visitors then enter the second section, which is made to look like a submarine. Here they are introduced to Jersey's maritime history by Captain Nemo, played by John Nettles.

Finally, visitors are invited to cross a drawbridge into a large cinema where they can witness a celebrity-packed show, featuring Tony Robinson, Roger Lloyd Pack, Brian Blessed, Samantha Janus, Kevin Whately and Stephen Tompkinson, who play key figures from the islands history. They are taken through from the creation of Jersey to the present day. The show is presented through various means such as videos, holograms, and moving models. To add to the experience, at one point wind blows through the theatre.

Adventure Golf[edit]

Living Legend features two 18-hole adventure golf courses, which it claims is the first of its kind in Britain (although technically Jersey is not in Britain). Covering 3 acres (12,000 m2), and based on similar courses in America, it incorporates caves, lakes and waterfalls. It was opened in 1997 by Ian Woosnam MBE.

Craft and Shopping Village[edit]

Living Legend also features a craft and shopping village selling a wide array of products from jewellery to lace and ceramics.
