Guernsey & Sark - Scenic Island & Goldsmiths (half day)

Your scenic tour today gives you a delightful introduction to the charming island of Guernsey. Guernsey is only 25 miles square and presents a surprising variety of beautiful and historic attractions. Located near the coast of France but staunchly British throughout the centuries, Guernsey has a culture of its own, one that combines the best of English tradition and French lifestyle. You will see some stunning and colorful scenery and hear exciting stories about the history of the island.

The Channel Islands were the only part of England to be occupied by the Germans in World War 2 and there is a wealth of stories to be told about life under occupation. Guernsey’s history dates back to ancient times and its position on the trade routes of the ancient world ensure a deep and varied history.

Your route passes some of the beautiful bays along the Atlantic coastline where dramatic rocky crags protect small inlets from the fury of the winter storms. Make a stop at the silver and goldsmith’s workshop to see the craftsmen at work and enjoy refreshments. A visit will also be made to the “Little Chapel” at Vauxbelets– a miniature model of the grotto at Lourdes, built from seashells and pottery pieces by a monk in the 1920s.
