How to get there

By Plane – The island of Guernsey can be reached with direct flights from most major regional airports flying with the following airlines Aurigny, Easyjet and Blue Islands. Flight time is as little as 45 minutes.

By Ferry – Condor Ferries operate a daily service throughout the year from Poole and Portsmouth to Guernsey. The fast ferry service from Poole takes approximately three hours whereas the conventional ferry from Portsmouth can take up to twelve hours. You can travel as foot passengers or take your vehicle on-board. You can even take your dog with you – they travel free in your vehicle or you will pay a small supplement as foot passengers.

For ease of travel, there really is no better way to get there. No luggage restrictions, easy check in and you sit back, relax and start your holiday as soon as you board. Seat upgrades are available.

Top tips

  • For those looking for authentic and local dining why not enjoy a delicious seafood dinner at the Octopus Restaurant, overlooking St Peter Port.
  • Car parking is free in Guernsey but the majority of public car parks operate “Disc Zones” which define the amount of time you can park there. You will need to purchase a parking clock for a few pounds when you arrive to park in these car parks. Most garages and a number of retail outlets sell these.
  • Guernsey has a frequent bus network covering the whole island and connecting most visitor attractions via the most popular routes. A single fare of £1 applies to all journeys, including the around the island tour.

When To Go

Summer (June-August) – the island boasts some of the UK’s warmest weather and temperatures can reach a comfortable 21 degrees Celsius. This period is peak season and although the weather is favourable, costs and availability can be an issue.

Autumn (September-November) – September to mid-October can still attract some decent weather and it means you can enjoy the island when the tourists have all gone home. The sea temperatures tend to be at their warmest in September.

Winter (December-February) – Low Season. A season with unpredictable weather and very few tourists. Some properties, attractions and shops close during this period. That being said winter on Guernsey can still be enjoyable, with dramatic coastlines and cosy atmospheric pubs whilst taking advantage of the much lower prices at this time of year. However please bear in mind that travel to Guernsey at this time of the year can often be disrupted due to weather. This is also the best time for deserted beaches, coastal foraging, stormy photography and wild walks without another soul in sight.

Spring (March-May) – A lovely time to visit the island with spring flowers in bloom everywhere and the summer hoards of visitors have not yet arrived. Temperatures are starting to get balmy and a great time for walking the miles of nature trails on offer.
