Your afternoon is free to explore Guernsey at leisure, or relax at our hotel.
We board the ferry this morning which takes us to Herm, a tiny, car-free island east of Guernsey.
After breakfast this morning, we transfer by coach to Southampton airport for our flight to the beautiful island of Guernsey, where there have been human settlements since 5000 BC.
They were used by the German infantry to protect themselves from Allied air raids, and in 1943 was converted into an emergency hospital.
On our fascinating visit, we have the chance to learn all about the history of the island under the rule of the Nazis, and the brave resistance shown by the Jersey nationals at the time. After lunch we transfer to the ferry terminal and sail back to Poole. On Day 9, we make our way to the railroad station and join the service back to London where our tour comes to an end.
For this tour, we recommend arriving to, and departing from, London Gatwick or London Heathrow airport (LGW or LHR).
London Gatwick is approximately 31 miles from your start and end point, and London Heathrow is approximately 17 miles from your start and end point.
We take a ferry back to Guernsey, arriving back at our hotel in time for dinner together this evening.
After a morning at leisure, we transfer to the port for the ferry to Jersey, an island with a long and, at times tumultuous, history.
With a rich and fascinating history dating to the 10th century, the castle was the site of the murder of Edward the Martyr, a young medieval king of England.
Enjoy some time at leisure to explore this charming, quintessentially English village before a short journey on the Swanage Railroad.
One of the most famous sights on Guernsey is Castle Cornet, which was once a tidal island before its natural bridge was cut off from the mainland.
