Jersey and Guernsey are unusual places, shaped by the sea with magnificent panoramic views and an exceptional way of life. They also offer a wide range of activities for all ages, like boat trips or a cycle ride around the island.
The two islands have a rich history and a unique culture resulting from their Franco-British heritage with many wonderful places of interest to visit such as Mont Orgueil Castle and Elizabeth Castle on Jersey.
Both castles are venues for many events and activities. For example, you can abseil down the medieval walls of Mont Orgueil Castle and watch the master gunner who marches around then fires blank shot from the cannon.
Jersey attractions include kayaking trips, botanical gardens, an adventure trail to do with friends, and family attractions like a visit to La Mare Wine Estate and cider distillery.
Guernsey has lots of idyllic scenery and bracing walks along its cliffs, the island is a very restful and relaxing place to stay. During your visit, you can try to solve the mysteries of the AdventureRooms, learn to play golf on courses overlooking the sea and visit the aquarium to know more about the local marine life.
On Guernsey, you can also discover Hauteville House, where the writer Victor Hugo spent 18 years in exile after fleeing from France and being expelled from Jersey.
