Day 1: Travel to Guernsey

Day 2: Island Tour of Sausmarez Manor
An island coach tour takes us to the fascinating La Vallette Underground Military Museum, Fort Grey and the Shipwreck Museum. A highlight will be our stop at The Little Chapel, as much a curiosity as a work of art, totally covered in shells and broken bits of china. In the afternoon we visit Sausmarez Manor, a family home, with parts dating back to the 12th Century. The estate houses a curious sculpture park and a large bamboo forest.
Day 3: St Peter Port and Castle Cornet
Today we have a full day to explore St Peter Port, Guernsey’s picturesque capital, starting with a sightseeing visit to Castle Cornet – St Peter’s Port harbour guide for more than 800 years. A guided tour takes you onto the battlements for views towards the neighbouring islands. After the tour explore the onsite museums, but don’t miss the daily firing of the noon-day gun.
