The islands of The Bailiwick of Guernsey lie in the Bay of St Malo and despite loyalty to the British crown since 1066.

Guided Walking Holidays Discover Guernsey

Explore the dramatic coast and picturesque interior of Guernsey and two of the other islands of the Bailiwick, Sark and Herm. The islands lie in the Bay of St Malo and despite loyalty to the British crown since 1066, at only eight miles from the French coast at their nearest point, they inevitably have a ‘taste of France’.

We’ll walk some of the best stretches of the coast, with cliff-top paths and fine views out to sea. Along the coast are many signs of Guernsey’s history, from the WW2 defences built by the German occupiers to fortifications against Napoleon; right back to Megalithic tombs from 3000-2000BC. There are also artistic sights, such as Renoir’s Viewpoint. Inland, Guernsey is criss-crossed with ‘Green Lanes’ through picturesque and varied countryside.

Sark, just three miles by one and a half, is a ferry ride away, where ‘traffic’ consists of tractors, horses and bicycles. We’ll also get the chance to sample the best this wonderful island has to offer. Take the opportunity to visit Herm Island on your free day.

  2. Day 2

    Covering only about 26 square miles, Guernsey is a manageable sized island to get to know in a week. In our explorations we'll get to see the best of this beautiful island, a loyal outpost of the English Crown for the best part of a millennium. 80 miles south east of England and 30 miles from the French coast, the island blooms all year round and is a paradise for bird lovers, photographers and historians. We will explore the magnificent cliff-tops and sandy bays of the coast, two centuries of fortifications, the quiet lanes leading into the island's interior and take the chance to slow down to Guernsey's calming pace of life. 

    Walk on the north coast from Le Dehus to Grandes Rocques taking in coastal fortifications and prehistoric tombs along the way.
