Easter in Guernsey

Easter in GuernseyWith Easter Weekend only a couple of weeks away, we thought we would give you an idea of what will be going on here in Guernsey. So close to mainland Britain yet a world apart, the Bailiwick of Guernsey will undoubtedly be one of the prettiest places to celebrate this long-awaited bank holiday.

Guernsey is also the perfect launchpad to explore the sister-island of Sark – the ‘Island Parish’ – where some interesting events are being held.

Yoga on Sark

Daily ferries and boat trips from Guernsey to Sark are available.

Get yourself totally immersed in relaxing, calm and blissfully quiet surroundings. Sark’s beauty lies in its petiteness and the majestic scenery contained within its two square miles. During Easter the island is taking a step further and offering a Yoga Retreat weekend, with classes available for all abilities. Guests can stay at the luxurious Stocks Hotel during their relaxing getaway.

Lunch, Relax, Market

Easter Sunday lunch conjures images of abundance and indulgence, and in Guernsey we have added luxury to the list of pleasures.

At La Grande Mare Hotel all three elements are combined. Easter lunch will be served overlooking the stunning west coast and, after your meal, you can stay on in the restaurant and hotel grounds to enjoy a walk or maybe play a quick nine holes on the golf course.

Guernsey is rightly proud of its local produce, including potatoes, tomatoes and incredibly fresh catches from the seas surrounding the island.  Various seasons are now in full swing, giving foodies a great chance to treat themselves. A Fresh Produce Market will be held on the 31st March – the locals love it, don’t miss it!


Throughout the Easter Weekend, the Guernsey History Action Company will be based at Castle Cornet in St Peter Port, Guernsey’s enchanting capital.

The company will delight everyone with historical re-enactments, bringing the island’s past back to life in a unique location. To visit the castle and experience history coming to life for yourself, you simply need a weekend ticket. These can be organised through Guernsey Museum.
