Welcome to The Channel Islands

Guernsey boasts a rich history with the imposing Castle Cornet, its Second World War occupation, and the literary homage point of Victor Hugo’s house. Its quaint and compact capital, St Peter’s Port is the perfect base to explore the island’s long golden sandy beaches and cider farms tucked away in the green interior. We’ll also island hop to neighbouring Sark known as the ‘last bastion of feudalism in Europe’, and Herm, both of which are untainted by cars in favour of the gentle clip-clopping of horses. Overflowing with old-world charm and quirky anachronisms, the Channel Islands are an irresistibly British seaside destination.
