What are Channel Islands

Nestled just off the French coast near Normandy and some 80 miles south of mainland Britain lie a set of small islands which are not actually part of the UK but are a British Crown dependency. Officially the islands fall into two ‘bailiwicks’ or authorities – the bailiwick of Jersey an the Bailiwick of Guernsey, which includes Alderney, Sark and Herm


The largest Channel Island, Jersey offers golden beaches, the most concentrated set of Michelin stars for its size, chic shopping areas and a luxurious lifestyle. Contrasting this are quaint French style farmhouses, country lanes, rugged cliff top walks and beautiful little fishing coves. Attractions on the island are as varied as the scenery with Durrell Wildlife Park, The Mansell Collection, The Pallot Museum, Jersey Lavender and The Jersey War Tunnels and Underground Hospital all proving popular with visitors. If you tire of attractions and fantastic beaches, head for a spot to eat at one of the island’s numerous bistros, bars, pubs and restaurants. With outdoor pursuits including kayaking, RIB rides, surfing, golf, cycling and walking all catered for generously, your only problem may be fitting everything in!


Guernsey’s elegant mix of heritage, stunningly beautiful scenery and up and coming eateries makes it a great visit for all ages. Shop in the cobbled streets of St Peter Port enjoying the beautiful floral displays or head to the beaches. Guernsey’s rugged south coast cliffs contrast with the golden beaches of the west coast. Here you can safely enjoy a cream tea or Guernsey ice cream and work it off with a walk! Guernsey’s historical defences are a fascinating visit or walk in the steps of Victor Hugo and visit the famous authors retreat, Hauteville House.

Alderney, Herm and Sark

These smaller islands lose nothing other than size with the same mix of beauty and history. If you really want to escape, head for Sark and Herm which are blissfully car free.
