Fly to Guernsey, from £40

For the perfect mix of stunning scenery  and the best of contemporary living,  Guernsey is an ideal destination. The island  has a rich history and is a thriving business  centre. Make the most of the great outdoors,  from thrill-seeking coasteering to walks along  the cliff paths, or lazy days on  beautiful beaches.

St Peter Port, the island's capital, is a bustling harbour town and tapestry of architectural styles that tell the story of the region's changing fortunes. Find time for some tax free shopping in the many boutiques, then enjoy a variety of culinary styles at one of its finest restaurants.

This year Guernsey celebrates the  Channel Islands Heritage Festival from 3 April - 11 May.  The festival culminates in the 70th anniversary Liberation Day celebrations on 9th May with a day-long carnival which remembers and celebrates the islands freedom from German occupation.
