IT'S TIME FOR... GUERNSEY

Guernsey, Guernsey

Imagine a world where nobody cared when the latest iPhone was being released...

Guernsey is a little like ‘Groundhog Day’ - it’s stuck in time, repeating the same slow, delicious pace of life year after year.

Saint Peter Port is Guernsey’s capital (population = not many).

Potter about for fishing-villagey fun, ancient castles and VAT-free shopping 👌

Martin and Martin is THE (only) place to buy jewellery engraved with Guernsey’s language, Guernesiais .

Island hopping, Guernsey style

Start off with tiny golden Herm. Shell Beach is yer one for paddling. You’re also close to Grande Amfrocque, where seals live from April-October. Finish off with a pint in the island’s only pub, The Mermaid.

Then head to the quaint island of Sark where cars are forbidden and everyone travels by horse and carriage or bicycle.

It’s like stepping back into one of your nan’s photos of her nan.

You’d have to be a real fish-o-phobe not to want fresh Guernsey seafood for your dinner.

The Fermain Beach Cafe serves crab sandwiches, scallops with bacon and sea bass with an equally tasty view. In summer, book in advance.

Guernsey ain’t known for its pumping nightlife, but there’s plenty of hotel bars willing to serve you a cauldron of gin.

Red has harbour views, The Captain's has live music, and the Leopard Bar makes you feel like a Russian oligarch’s plaything.

Whatever tickles your fancy…

Sum Up

Stunning white beaches, dramatic cliff-scapes and fresh seafood… all in the English Channel.

Guernsey, eh. Who knew?
