What’s On In April

Guernsey FlowersGuernsey is ready to welcome everyone this April, whether you are foodies, walkers or just looking forward to a break on our beautiful island.

The month starts with Easter weekend, so a few festivities are on offer – there will be egg hunts for little ones and history re-enactments for everyone to enjoy. The rest of the month is promising to be just as exciting with something new to do everyday. Come and discover Guernsey, its beautiful landscapes, fantastic food, charming town and stunning coasts will ensure a memorable and enjoyable break!

Egg Hunt

Only three miles away from Guernsey lies the delightful Island of Herm, where an Easter Sunday Egg Hunt will be held. All children are of course welcome but a visit to Herm really is a special treat for everyone… Picture golden beaches, wild flowers, no cars, and you have the backdrop for a perfect relaxing day.

Beaches in Herm

Actually, why stop at Herm?

Sark and Alderney also belong to the Bailiwick of Guernsey, often referred to as Guernsey’s Sister Islands. Hopping from one island to the next is fun with ferry trips, quaint historical discoveries and a sense of going back in time.

We organise twin-island breaks to Guernsey and Alderney, Guernsey and Herm, and Guernsey and Sark, with all inter-island travel included.

Markets

Back in Guernsey after your inter-island escapade, let us tempt you to the rich variety of local produce that the island is rightly proud of.

From locally grown potatoes and tomatoes to daily catches of fish, crabs and lobsters, the Farmers and Fishermans Market will be a visual feast as much as a way of understanding the island’s strong connection with its natural environments, the sea and the land. The market is held every Saturday throughout April at Saumarez Manor. The Manor itself is a must-see while visiting Guernsey with award winning gardens, a sculpture park and its own Tin and Silversmiths.

Tasty Walks

To get yourself truly immersed in Guernsey’s history and discover the island’s stunning coastline, three walks have been devised for you – with a tasty twist. Now in its second month, the Tasty Walks programme combines a walk, a talk and a meal.

Tasty Walks in Guernsey

On Mondays,  go back through centuries of tales and heritage with “A Stitch in Time” while wandering amongst St Peter Port lanes, before going for dinner in one of the town’s many charming restaurants.

On Saturdays, “A West Coast Wander” will take you to Guernsey sea shores with a tour of some of the National Trust’s land. Folklore, forts, beaches and rocks followed by lunch by the sea will give you a good idea of what Guernsey is all about; beauty and delicious food…

Tuesdays and Thursdays, the”Unexpected Guests” Tasty Walk goes back to St. Peter Port for an insight in the Occupation years, Victor Hugo’s time on the island and an impromptu royal visit before enjoying a traditional afternoon tea.

And finally… Thirsty?

Guernsey isn’t only about walking and food. Since 1868 beer has been brewed (and drunk!) on the island by the Randall family. With modernisation came relocation and the brewery moved  from its original site in 2008. From April, it will be possible to tour the brewery and of course taste the delicious local beer.

Book early to avoid disappointment at Randalls of Guernsey.
