The Bailiwick of Guernsey, which includes neighbouring islands Herm, Sark, Alderney and Lihou, is a truly wonderful holiday destination awash with rich heritage and culture, breath-taking scenery, sandy beaches, culinary delights and VAT-free shops.
Guernsey is the second largest of the Channel Islands, a small but stunning archipelago that is officially the sunniest part of the British Isles and surely one of the most beautiful.
You can reach us in just 45 minutes by air from the UK (with no passport or foreign currency) or take a ferry to one of Europe’s prettiest coastal towns, St. Peter Port, our harbour capital which offers a very continental flavour with plenty of boutique shops, cafés, bars and restaurants packed into old cobbled streets lined with flowers.
Visitors seeking an urban escape can explore over 70 miles of spectacular coastline surrounding the Bailiwick isles, with 27 different beaches on Guernsey alone, or head inland to discover our picturesque rural parishes through quiet country lanes and stumble across local treasures such as The Little Chapel. Numerous museums and attractions are scattered around the island, each with their own tale to tell, from local folklore to life under Nazi rule during WW2, whilst various festivals and special events take place each year to celebrate and showcase the best of Guernsey.
