All about Guernsey holidays
Your break in Guernsey can be as relaxed or as active as you wish it to be. If you want to focus on sightseeing, there are many attractions to take in. The capital, St Peter Port, is a good place to start – Castle Cornet is the main fortress on the island and is home to five museums offering a fascinating insight into Guernsey's Anglo-French history.
You can also learn much by simply wandering around St Peter Port Harbour or visiting Victor Hugo House, where the French writer lived while in exile from France. Pick up some souvenirs for friends or family or presents for yourself at the small boutique stores and larger chains in the city centre, taking full advantage of the lack of VAT!
Walking is one particularly popular pastime on Guernsey, and it's perhaps of little surprise, as the island boasts some spectacular scenery and mile upon mile of excellent hiking trails. You'll see many unique plants and flowers as you walk along clifftops and rural lanes, and around bays and large areas of countryside. Keen birdwatchers will be able to spot a number of species around Guernsey, especially if you join one of the spring and summer tours organised by the RSPB.
If you want to get even more active, there are many more pursuits to choose from. Land-based activities include climbing, clay pigeon shooting, archery, horse riding, tennis and golf, while the water sports available range from sailing and fishing to diving and surfing.
Keen foodies will have much to enjoy on their holiday in Guernsey; there are several markets selling all manner of local produce, while the seafood is, as you might expect from an island, second to none. The restaurants here serve up a variety of cuisines, so you should find your tastes are catered for.
