Channel Islands

Introduction

Just off the Normandy coast, the Channel Islands, comprising of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm are a short hop away from Britain and mainland Europe. Their mild winters, warm summers and long hours of sunshine make them ideal year-round destinations.

Jersey, just 9 miles by 5, makes it easy and accessible to get around. Everything is on your doorstep – beautiful beaches and coastal walks, heritage and history, memorable food experiences whilst overlooking the sea. Boat trips and stunning views, the moderate climate in Jersey makes it a perfect destination any time of year. The Botanic Gardens were created in the 1920s by Sir James Knott. The gardens are diverse in style, extensive, tranquil and peaceful including a renowned herb garden and Japanese garden. The manor house and a rural life museum are open to the public. The pretty port of St Helier has a vast array of beautiful restaurants serving fresh caught local sea-food – perfect rest after a boat safari tour! 

 

Guernsey, it may be small but there are plenty of things to do and visit – a nature and wildlife lovers paradise! Fauxquets Valley is a beautiful, peaceful inland valley in the heart of Guernsey, with woodland, a nature reserve and ponds under a beautiful canopy of trees, making it a great place for walking. Enjoy magnificent views from this southwest coast spot, from which Hanois lighthouse and Lihou Island can be seen, as well as Jersey and the French coast on clear days. Get out on the water either by boat or try kayaking or paddle-boarding!
