Tucked away in the English Channel, the island of Guernsey is one of the British Isles’ hidden gems, and is also a fantastic, stress-free family friendly holiday destination.
Whether you are looking to spend time relaxing and playing on the beach, exploring the beautiful harbour town of St Peter Port or getting active with the family in the great outdoors, the Bailiwick of Guernsey offers an abundance of things to do that the whole family are bound to love.
Guernsey is accessible by air from London Gatwick, Manchester, Southampton and a range of other regional airports, and flight times can be as short as 35 minutes. In no time at all everyone can be enjoying all that the island has to offer during a family holiday, without the stresses that often come with a long journey. If you’re looking to bring the car with you, ferries run from Poole and Portsmouth, while passenger-only services operate throughout the summer to and from Normandy.
Once you have arrived, exploring Guernsey could hardly be easier. Whether you choose to travel by bus, car or bicycle, the island’s small size means that nothing is ever too far away.
In terms of accommodation, there is no shortage of family-friendly options in Guernsey. From self-catering apartments just a stone’s throw from the beach, to family friendly hotels in the heart of St Peter Port, or accommodation suitable for wheelchair users, you’re sure to find somewhere perfect for your family to stay.
