Guernsey is a beautifully different world that is only a stone's throw away from mainland UK making it the perfect escape for a weekend or more, and the memories will stay with you for a lifetime - lots of people return to Guernsey year on year and there's a good reason why! Come and discover the best of Guernsey.
Guernsey is an ideal location for a long weekend break away from it all. With many UK airports only an hour from the island, or travel by boat, from Poole in around 3.5 hours, escaping to Guernsey for a few days is the perfect option that will have something in store for everyone!
Don’t be fooled by its small size, there are a lot of activities and sights to pack into your three days here, but luckily, at only 24 square miles, nothing is too far away to explore. It's even possible to squeeze some islands hopping into a long weekend, with a boat ride to Herm taking just 20 minutes from St. Peter Port, and Sark only around 45 minutes away by regular ferry.
For couples looking for an unforgettable, hassle-free romantic getaway, the Bailiwick of Guernsey can offer exactly that. A true gem of the British Isles, Guernsey seems a world away from the hustle and bustle of life on the mainland, despite being relatively close in both distance and travel time.
You and your loved one could be enjoying a romantic clifftop stroll, walking hand in hand on a wide open beach, or sharing a cosy candlelit dinner in beautiful Guernsey within hours of leaving home.
With its cobbled streets, picturesque marina and historic gardens, it is easy to see why St. Peter Port is considered one of Europe's prettiest harbour towns. Guernsey's capital has been a busy port since Roman times and today its gentle bustle spills out onto the vibrant squares from informal cafes and gastronomic restaurants.
Outside of town there are plenty more great eateries to be found, from traditional pubs with hearty grub, seaside kiosks serving cakes and ice creams, to well renowned restaurants. You will be spoilt with choice of places to dine in the islands of the Bailiwick of Guernsey
Guernsey is a great option for families being only a short hop by flight or an exciting ferry ride which all adds to the experience of holidaying on an island. The Bailiwick of Guernsey offers a safe and friendly family environment with shallow beaches and a mild climate allowing you to make the most of the outdoor playground on your doorstep.
The islands also offer a lot to learn; a new culture in Sark watching sheep racing, to history at Castle Cornet getting into character and learning about the defences for St. Peter Port.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of anticipation in the air around the Travel Trident ticket kiosk on a sunny summer’s morning. Only a quick 20 minute hop from Guernsey, this shiny little gem is within reach for all to enjoy whilst holidaying in the Channel islands.
This small island offers a unique experience, with the absence of traffic creating a safe place to explore without boundaries offering the potential for imagination fuelled adventures now rarely seen outside of Enid Blyton books.
