Getting Around

Making the most of your break in Guernsey couldn't be easier.

Whether you choose to get around by bus, car, bicycle or on foot, the island's charming network of inland lanes and beautiful coastline are waiting to be explored.

Hiring a car will give you the most flexibility when it comes to getting around at your own pace. Visitors should be aware that the island has some unique traffic systems to adhere to and the maximum speed limit is 35mph. Alternatively, there is an extensive bus service with routes that can take you anywhere you want to visit.

If you're bringing our own car, with Condor Ferries, you will need to purchase a parking clock.  These are available onboard your ferry, and also from various outlets around the island as well as the Guernsey Information Centre - ideally located on the St Peter Port seafront.  The parking clocks are a 'one-time' purchase and, under the present parking regulations, will never expire so you can keep it and re-use it on further visits to the Island.  Public car parks in St Peter Port and on The Bridge are Disc parking zones.  You will see blue signs in the car park saying how long you are allowed to park there for, you set the time of arrival on the parking clock and simply place it on your dashboard.  The car must be moved before the time is up. 

For a more leisurely approach, you can take to two wheels. There are cycle lanes around the east coast between St Peter Port and the Bridge, St Sampson's. If you want to venture off the beaten track, explore the more rural parishes and head for the narrow, leafy Ruette Tranquilles lanes which have a speed limit of just 15mph.
