Take a thrilling ride along Guernsey’s southeast coastline with our partners at Island Rib Voyages, and discover the island’s secrets from the sea.
While overlooked by the dramatic cliff scenery, you’ll hear all about pirates and smugglers, see the island’s smallest fort, where Victor Hugo walked and swam, and both Napoleonic and German fortifications.
There’s also the chance of spotting dolphins, puffins and seals, all with the wind in your hair, and the sun on your face.
A 50-minute boat ride from Guernsey, Sark is the crown jewel of the Channel Islands, with a population of around 500 people. Cars are prohibited so a horse-drawn carriage is the best way to see all this beautiful spot has to offer. Accompanied by Philip Perrée, one of Sark’s best known characters and most knowledgeable tour guides, your experience is yours for the making.
Marvel at the island’s unspoilt landscape and charming unpaved roads, explore the island museum, and cross over the famous La Coupee to Little Sark, where you might stop for some lunch or afternoon tea.
Price: £180 per five-seater carriage for a full day tour
Visit the Meller family farm, nestled in the heart of the picturesque Fauxquets Valley, and discover how the island became home to the award-winning Rocquette cider.
The guided 90-minute tour will begin with a stroll through the estate, with a brief stop to feed the rainbow trout in the lake, and an explanation of how the cider is made. The family is justifiably proud of their sustainable approach to cider making and passionate about continuing the long-established cider heritage of Guernsey.
You’ll then enjoy a cider and fruit liqueur tasting in the picturesque tasting room, accompanied by delicious Guernsey cheese and biscuits, and homemade apple chutney.
Price: £20 per adult (16-17 year olds are £15 and children under 15 are free)
Take a walk with Annette Henry, a gold-accredited tour guide who was born and bred on the island, and has been offering guided tours for the past 20 years.
You’ll discover the island’s rich heritage, including how Guernsey fared during the bubonic plague, witch trials, cholera epidemic and the English Civil War.
Annette will also share the reality of the five years of German Occupation during World War II, with personal stories of demilitarisation, evacuation, deportation and the eventual liberation of the islanders. She’ll also point out spots mentioned in the Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society film, based on the best selling novel by Mary Ann Schaffer.
The Duke of Richmond serves a sumptuous Afternoon Tea daily in the Zebra Lounge, the Conservatory or, weather permitting, on the Sun Terrace. Afternoon Tea remains one of life’s great traditions and our menu naturally includes the classics; a selection of delicious finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with preserves and clotted cream and Chef's delicate tea pastries.
Explore the wonderful world of gin as we take you on a gin safari. Join us for a gin tasting journey with a difference. You'll hunt down rare botanicals, discover exotic flavours and then capture them in your very own bespoke brew.
We have four gin safaris waiting to be discovered, each encompassing three gins from across the world.
Discover a different side to Guernsey with a Land Rover tour.
Over three hours, you’ll feel like you’re on safari as you explore the southern and western parts of the island with your tour guide Andy Taylor, driving through some of the narrowest lanes, deep into the Guernsey countryside in his comfortable 11-seater open-sided Land Rover.
Andy is a passionate Guernseyman and is keen to show visitors the best the island has to offer, from its tastiest coffee and tea, to its Guernsey jumpers and other small businesses.
