    Channel Islands holidays

Enjoy a mixture of British and French traditions

Famed for their quiet charm and old-fashioned courtesy, UK holidays to the Channel Islands offer the unique blend of Britishness with a taste of France.

Things to do

On the largest island, Jersey – which is certainly not all fawn-coloured cows and statues of John Nettles – you will find hidden bays with golden sands, unspoilt countryside and a pleasant, temperate climate. Guarded by Elizabeth Castle, the capital St Helier has much to investigate during Channel Islands holidays, including the art gallery, maritime museum and the unique Glass Church - featuring designs by Rene Lalique.

Perhaps you’ll catch a catamaran around the coastline to see the famous Corbiere Lighthouse from a different perspective, taste local produce on a visit to a wine estate or enter the Jersey War Tunnels to hear the poignant story of the German Occupation.

Visitors to the capital of Guernsey, St Peter Port, can enjoy wandering its narrow cobbled streets and pretty harbour. Attractions include museums, art galleries and Castle Cornet, the ancient fortress that guards the harbour. Be there at midday to see the period-costumed soldier fire the noon day gun - a memory you're sure not to forget from your Channel Islands holidays.

As for Sark, there is no better way to explore this tiny, traffic-free island than by hiring a horse and cart.

Wherever your Channel Islands holidays take you, you're sure to enjoy an unforgettable experience.
