Do something different this Valentine's Day and whisk your loved one away from everyday life for a holiday to remember. Guernsey is the ideal place to engage in a little romance, with its stunning scenery and wonderful atmosphere.

Base yourself at The Duke of Richmond Hotel where you can take advantage of the Romantic Retreat package, which entitles you to two nights of luxurious accommodation in a beautiful room and a candlelit aromatherapy full body massage for two. Get the trip started with chilled Champagne on arrival and private transfers from the airport, among other extras.

Wander St Peter Port

The winding streets of St Peter Port, where The Duke of Richmond Hotel is based, ooze with charm and atmosphere all year round. You'll find plenty of traditional pubs and bars in the harbour where you can enjoy a romantic glass of Prosecco while gazing out to sea, before examining some of the wonderful art galleries and knick-knack shops that make this such a unique town.

Take a cruise

Enjoy a boat cruise from the harbour and experience an exciting trip along the coast, taking in the sights of Guernsey and its surrounding islands. Witness the beaches that have made this little destination such a popular place for a holiday for Brits, as well as some of the relics left over from the turbulent periods of the Second World War and the French invasion of 1066.

Enjoy the natural scenery

Guernsey is home to some of the most stunning natural scenery you'll ever witness, with gorgeous beaches, spectacularly rugged coastlines and beautiful countryside making it the ideal place to enjoy a romantic stroll together. Shell Beach is known for being particularly pristine, but if you're looking for somewhere with character, the cliffs that are home to Castle Cornet make for a dramatic and spectacular setting.
