The Channel Islands are known for being home to the mildest climate in the UK and they are actually closer to France. Guernsey is a great spot for lovers of the outdoors and those who are keen on their rural beauty - think dramatic coastal scenery, wild flowers, beaches and secluded walking trails. Hiking and cycling along the coast to remote, wild beaches is the perfect way to spend the day on Guernsey, followed by al fresco dining on fresh seafood in one of St Peter's Port's many restaurants. Island hopping to the three surrounding smaller islands is a popular day tripping activity and a chance to explore more of the Channel Islands signature rugged scenery.
July and August are peak season when families flock to Guernsey to enjoy the beaches during school holidays. Visit either side of peak summer months to enjoy lower prices and a quieter island when the landscape is still lush and green.

St Peter's Port is Guernsey's capital and it is a charming town with cobbled streets and a quaint seaside marina. Castle Cornet perfects the idyllic scene and it is the atmospheric setting for theatre productions as well as housing several museums and period gardens.
Hauteville House was the home of Victor Hugo after he was exiled from France and this was where he wrote his most famous work, Les Miserables. The house is well worth a visit with quirky furniture and décor that match Hugo's eccentric personality.
