Tasty Walks in Guernsey

St Peter PortThis March, Guernsey offers its charms to food lovers and walkers alike with its Tasty Walks Festival. Three itineraries have been carefully selected for you to discover and enjoy the island’s unique past, natural beauty and culinary excellence.

Once you have found out what the Romans did for the island, why the local folklore is still going strong and the people that Guernsey hosted over the last century, you will relax with a well deserved meal at one of the island’s participating restaurants.

A Stitch in Time – Dinner in St Peter Port

The Romans roamed its streets and the privateers traded in its taverns…St Peter Port remains a delightful and charming little town well worth exploring. The Stitch in Time Tasty Walk will reveal most of its secrets. As it is an evening event why not stay in town overnight after your meal? The Pandora Hotel is ideally located and has some great accommodation options throughout the spring.

Cliff WalkA West Coast Wander – Lunch

As an essential part of island life, coastal walking will reveal Guernsey’s rugged yet stunning charms. You will be guided through beaches, 19th century fortifications and the intriguing “Fairy Ring”, an ancient circle of stones. The walk will end for lunch at The Imperial Hotel on the south-west corner of the island, a perfect place to stay for a few more days.

Unexpected Guests – Afternoon Tea

The Queen, Victor Hugo and the German occupation have all fuelled the local story telling over the years. This walk is about people and their fascinating influence on Guernsey’s recent past. It starts at the Liberation Monument, erected in 1995, and made of 50 layers of granite to represent the 50 years of freedom since 1945. The walk ends with a traditional Guernsey Afternoon Tea. Yum!
