Discover The Channel Islands

Just off the French Normandy coast lie the Channel Islands, comprising of Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm and these beautiful gems are just a short hop (ferry from Poole or Portsmouth) away from the UK. The largest - Jersey - is only nine miles by five, meaning it is very easy to explore in a long weekend; beach walks, coastal drives, stunning food, boat trip and a host of places to stay make spending time here very memorable. Adventurous types will love Guernsey, with its green spaces and rolling ocean. Try your hand at coasteering, kayaking, paddleboarding or even a clifftop hike. There are also ancient castles to explore as the island is steeped in history. On the island of Sark, prepare to take a step back in time; cars are prohibited so you can explore the islands rolling landscape and unpaved roads on bikes or by horse-drawn carriage. There are no street lights, so Sark is the worlds first designated "dark sky island" and a real treat for stargazers. From Sark, you can take boat trips past Herm and Jethou (a privately owned island that is part of Guernsey) to see puffins, dolphins and birds.
