Thanks to a new direct service between Newquay and Guernsey operated by Blue Islands, you can enjoy a hassle-free holiday from Cornwall to our beautiful Bailiwick this summer.
Discover a stunning archipelago that balances a distinctly continental charm with the familiarity of the English language and currency. There’s no need to worry about currency exchange rates when visiting Guernsey, and you don’t even need a passport either!
While picturesque coastlines and sandy bays may be familiar sights to visitors from Cornwall, Guernsey offers a whole host of other reasons to visit.
The Bailiwick, made up of the islands of Guernsey, Alderney, Herm and Sark and a handful of smaller isles, is the perfect destination for an island-hopping holiday. Discover the fascinating history of Alderney, the rural charm of Sark and the unparalleled tranquility of Herm, all in one trip!
Furthermore, whether you consider yourself a history buff or not, relics of Guernsey’s intriguing past are visible all around. Well-preserved fortifications line the coast, while there are several great museums where you can learn more about the island’s turbulent past, which has seen it change hands between the English, French and Germans over the years.
The island has also inspired some artistic greats. The south coast cliffs were a favourite of legendary impressionist Pierre-Auguste Renoir, while Les Misérables author Victor Hugo spent 15 years living in St Peter Port during his exile from France. His remarkable residence underwent renovations earlier this year, so you can discover his eclectic style of decoration, and take in the top floor views that served as such an inspiration to him.
Finally, a trip to Guernsey is sure to leave a pleasant taste; such is the quality of its culinary scene. Borne out of the quality of seafood, meat, dairy and vegetables available on the island, there are dozens of exceptional eateries for you to enjoy during your stay, catering to every taste. For those seeking a more casual dinner, takeaway fish and chips on a west coast beach is a local summertime tradition, and offers unforgettable sunsets too!
