Fort Grey, Guernsey

Guernsey is a small island with a big heart. Nestled in the middle of the Channel Islands and within sight of the French coast, Guernsey retains much of its traditional charm alongside the identity of a modern and vibrant British island.

Holidays in Guernsey can be spent shopping and exploring in the town centre of St. Peter Port, exploring the lush countryside and coastal cliff walks in the south and west of the island, or lapping up the sunshine on one of the island's beautiful beaches. Visitors are treated to a wealth of natural features and experiences to invigorate the senses and relax.

Although Guernsey is geographically much closer to France than the UK, it is loyal to the British crown. This loyalty can be traced back to Norman times when the Channel Islands first became part of the English realm and forms the basis of the island’s constitution.

Blessed with an abundance of natural ingredients from sea and land, it’s not surprising that the islands should be able to boast so many high quality restaurants. Choose from hearty pub fayre, bistro dining or contemporary cuisine – healthy appetites are welcome in all of our restaurants. There are a huge variety of culinary styles available from all over the world, too. Indian, Turkish, Spanish and Italian sit comfortably alongside more traditional restaurants. And with the quality as high as it is, you’ll soon be back for seconds.

With their age-old recipe of clean sea, fresh air and clear light, the islands are the ultimate, natural antidote to stress.
