Day 1 Travel by air or sea to Guernsey: On arrival make your way to your hotel. Later, maybe explore St Peter Port, where restaurants and informal cafes which spill out onto vibrant squares.
Days 2-7 Guernsey: During the week you are free to explore and sightsee as you choose. To help get your bearings a half day guided island tour is included, along with two separate day trips to Sark and Herm. On Guernsey itself sights not to be missed include Castle Cornet; Candie Gardens; Hauteville House, which was the home of Victor Hugo during his exile here; the rather cute Little Chapel and the fascinating German Military Underground Hospital and German Occupation Museum, for all things WW2. No visit is complete without an amble along the rugged south coast cliff paths or the long sweeping bays of the west. Alternatively, hire a bike and pedal along the narrow country lanes of the scenic interior. Make time to laze on a glorious beach with the sand between your toes, or if the urge to be more active strikes, you'll find all manner of watersports. If in need of some retail therapy, the cobbled streets of St Peter Port feature well-known UK brand names, local boutiques and craft shops, while an array of restaurants, cafes and bistros showcase the best local cuisine.
Day 8 Guernsey/Mainland UK: Time for last minute shopping or sightseeing, before returning to the airport for your onward journey.
