Day 1 St Peter Port
Our VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Guernsey.
On arrival, we transfer to the hotel and spend the afternoon at leisure.
Day 2 St Peter Port
We’ll enjoy a guided walking tour of St Peter Port which will reveal a rich, fascinating history.
Discover where Victor Hugo wrote ‘Les Misérables’ and where the Germans were shopping in the book ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’.
On our holidays in Guernsey, you can explore the delightful streets further, while you’re at leisure this afternoon.
Day 3 Island Tour
Today, an included half-day tour reveals the highlights of this beautiful island and uncovers more of Guernsey’s unique coastline, scattered with old towers overlooking bays of golden sands, inspiring cliff views and extensive countryside.
Day 4 St Peter Port
Today is free. Why not take a stroll along the bustling high street or head over to the Old Quarter, where you’ll find a treasure trove of quirky shops selling antiques, paintings and coffee.
Perhaps enjoy a seafood lunch and watch the colourful traditional fishing boats bringing in their catch.
Day 5 Sark
Today, we'll be taken by boat to Sark, where you can explore independently. Choose either to walk up the harbour hill footpath which leads to the village, with its selection of quaint shops and cafés, or take a seat for a ride on the ‘toast-rack’ - the tractor-drawn bus. As there are no cars on Sark, the pace of life is leisurely and relaxed.
Day 6 St Peter Port
We’ll take a walk from the hotel to Candie Gardens, a beautiful Victorian garden with gorgeous views of St Peter Port Harbour and the neighbouring islands.
Stroll along lawn-lined paths to find glasshouses, fish ponds and colourful flower beds, and relax in Café Victoria or visit the Guernsey Museum, housed within the grounds.
You may like to then follow a trail around the capital or into the countryside - fresh-smelling pine forests and 17 miles of stunning cliff paths are within easy access for a keen explorer.
Day 7 Castle Cornet
Castle Cornet was constructed to defend the English island from France. After several battles between the two nations, it still guards St Peter Port harbour today.
On our visit to this vast, 800-year-old castle, explore five museums detailing notable events, visit the historic gardens and witness the Napoleonic Noon-Day Gun, fired daily.
Day 8 St Peter Port
We transfer to the airport for the return flight.
Upon arrival your vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
St Peter Port is located in an area of steep coastline. The gradient can be challenging for those with walking difficulties.
Accommodation is locally rated and may change, but will always be of a similar standard.
