Silver Travel Advisor Partner - VisitGuernsey
Situated just off the Normandy coastline of France, in the English Channel, the Bailiwick of Guernsey is perfectly positioned to offer a holiday that is close to home, but feels like a world away.
With five unique islands, we can offer the holiday you’re looking for this year. Meet friendly local ambassadors, explore our history, or experience island hopping, your adventure definitely awaits.
From the paths of Guernsey’s spectacular south coast to the unassuming sandy paths of Herm, Sark’s wildflower lined tracks and the historic routes of Alderney, the Islands are a walker’s paradise.
Food lovers will be spoilt for choice. With an enviable larder of fresh food complimenting the bountiful seafood, along with the creamiest milk and award-winning butter and cheese from our famous Guernsey breed.
If Gin is your thing, the Island’s gins have become international award-winners. Our coastline is bursting with natural botanicals, rock samphire and gorse flowers providing a distinctive hint of Guernsey flavour.
The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles under German occupation during WWII there remains plenty of evidence of this period; coastlines are dotted with fortifications built by the German soldiers, with several museums depicting these dark days with gripping exhibits.
Guernsey also inspired Renoir who painted fifteen canvasses on the Island, along with Victor Hugo who wrote Les Miserables during his exile in Guernsey. Hauteville House, his home, reopened this year after extension renovation, making it a must-see attraction.
