Guernsey Mini Guide

What Can you Tell me About Guernsey?
Guernsey is the second largest of the Channel Islands and is a Crown Dependency in the English Channel located just off the coast of France. The proper name of the island is the Bailiwick of Guernsey and whilst a dependency, it’s not a part of the UK. Guernsey also controls Herm and three other nearby islands. During the Second World War Guernsey was occupied by the Germans who hoped to launch an invasion of the UK from there. Today it’s a popular holiday destination, especially with older travellers. The island isn’t big – only six miles by three miles so it’s easy to explore.

How Can I Get to the Island?
The only ways to access the island are by plane or boat. Ferries operate from the south coast of the UK and from France whilst there are many flights from UK international and regional airports to the island including cheaper flights from the budget airlines Flybe, Aurigny and BlueIslands. Once you’ve landed, travel to your accommodation is cheap and quick with even a taxi journey costing no more than £10. Interestingly there are many flights from Germany to the islands catering for the veterans and families of German soldiers stationed there. Guernsey is readily accessible by ferry from France also and you can take your rental car from France to Guernsey, however we recommend you check with the rental agent for insurance purposes.

What is There to See and Do on the Island?
Visit Hauteville House, the former home of Victor Hugo and now run as a museum from Paris. Some of his work is on display there as well as a chronology of his life and work.

The Royal Court House in St Peter Port is the home of the parliament of the States of Guernsey. The building can be toured with an official guide but some areas are inaccessible when the parliament is in session. Despite being the capital of the island, St Peter Port does not have a cathedral but the main church is called the Town Church and whilst not spectacular, is worth a few hours of your time. Jersey has its monumental Mont Orgueil Castle but Guernsey has Castle Cornet, built on a tidal island linked to the main island by a causeway. The castle was built in the 13th century and whilst not in as good condition as Jersey’s iconic castle, it’s definitely worth a visit.

What Should I Look for as Souvenirs?
Sadly, most of the souvenirs are of the cheap and cheerful kind and there’s very little worth purchasing. The islands are well known for their flowers and at worst you could buy some of the blooms which are often available out of the UK’s season for friends back home. Alternatively, many companies there do flowers by post, a nice surprise for friends and family back home.

What is the Food Like on Guernsey?
With its island geography, much of Guernsey’s specialist food comes from the sea with oysters, crabs and lobsters being a favourite. Many of the island’s restaurants serve these up, very fresh from the sea and in a variety of ways that are influenced by Guernsey’s French connection. Elsewhere traditional French fare is the norm but with the occasional English twist.

What is the Entertainment Like on Guernsey?
Guernsey is a quiet island so clubs and bars are of a gentler nature to what you might be used to. Night-time entertainment revolves around chic bars and restaurants whilst festivals are laid on for tourists including Guernsey’s own version of Jersey’s Battle of the Flowers.

Whether you plan to stay in the island's capital, St Peter Port and soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the harbour with all its boutiques and bistros or you prefer to explore more remote areas, a Rhino hire car in Guernsey is the most comfortable and convenient way to see as much of the island as possible. If you are on a tight budget we have a great range of economy car hire available with such models to choose from as the Toyota Aygo, Peugeot 207 and Volkswagen Golf. If your budget is more flexible and you fancy exploring the island in something a bit more fun, how about hiring one of our convertibles such as the Renault Megane Cabriolet. You can customise your car hire booking to suit your needs as we have a range of optional extras you can add onto your booking such as sat nav, child seats, infant seats and luggage racks.
