Guernsey Travel

Guernsey is a small island with a big heart. Nestled in the middle of the Channel Islands and within sight of the French coast, Guernsey retains much of its traditional charm alongside the identity of a modern and vibrant British island.

Loyal to the British Crown, Guernsey and the rest of the Channel Islands became British isles during the Norman conquest, creating a unique Anglo-French history that survives to this day. Today Guernsey is a self-governing ‘Baliwick’, incorporating the smaller Channel Islands of Sark, Alderney and Herm. There are many quirky and charming features on the island, including unique Guernsey stamps and the island’s own currency – legal tender only in the Channel Islands (don’t worry though – British Sterling can also be used!)

Holidays in Guernsey can be spent shopping and exploring in the town centre of St. Peter Port, exploring the lush countryside and coastal cliff walks in the south and west of the island, or lapping up the sunshine on one of the island’s beautiful beaches. Visitors are treated to a wealth of natural features and experiences to invigorate the senses and relax.

Guernsey is a naturally abundant source of fantastic food. Both locals and visitors are treated to many Guernsey specialities, including fresh Channel Island seafood, a wealth of locally-grown fruits & vegetables and Guernsey-brewed ales. The island features a great selection of restaurants, bars and cafes for al tastes, from hearty pub fayre and contemporary dining to beach cafes and award-winning hotel bistros.

A Guernsey break is an ideal antidote to stress; a different world only an hour from the UK mainland.
