Part of the Channel Islands that lie between England and France, compare holidays to Guernsey and prepare to visit a destination full of history and beauty. It’s only 24 square miles, so there’s no excuse for not exploring and making the most out of holidays to Guernsey from Manchester.
Dust off your English-Guernesiais dictionary and look forward to touching down on this lovely island with holidays to Guernsey. There might not be many locals left that still speak the native tongue, but this won’t stop you from enjoying a fabulous destination that offers beautiful scenery and plenty of summer sun.
One of Guernsey’s biggest draws is its delicious cuisine, which you can sample from a variety of eateries that suit a wide range of styles and budgets. Beach kiosks are really popular for a quick bite, while there’s also upmarket restaurants, al fresco options overlooking the sea and good old fish and chip shops that are perfect for when you’re strolling along the waterfront.
St Peter Port is Guernsey’s capital and it has a pretty harbour, endearing cobbled streets and a welcoming atmosphere. It’s also retained a real local charm thanks to its array of independent shops and boutiques.
Castle Cornet overlooks St Peter Port in quite dramatic fashion and has done for some 800 years. In addition to its gardens, shop and cafe, there are five musuems that you can explore to learn more about the history of the castle and the island’s defenses.
Take a boat over to the neighbouring Bailiwick islands and go in search of greater solitude on a deserted beach, or enjoy the traffic-free havens of Herm and Stark. Alderney meanwhile has an altogether more cosmopolitan vibe and is drenched in gorgeous scenery.
Whether you’re exploring castles, museums, galleries, beaches or restaurants, holidays to Guernsey from Manchester Airport are a wonderful choice for a break.
