Byway’s seven-day trip to Guernsey will begin by taking the train from London to the charming Dorset town of Poole, where guests can spend a night discovering its rich maritime history. Visitors will then take the ferry across to St Peter Port, where they will have four days at leisure to explore Guernsey and its Islands. Travellers are recommended to island-hop to Sark, Herm, and Alderney, discovering each island’s unique character: the dark skies of car-free Sark, the puffins and watersports of remote Herm, and the vibrant local festivals of tiny Alderney. Other highlights include making a splash with a spot of wild swimming, a popular local pastime, taking a stroll through the Islands’ dramatic landscapes, indulging in freshly-caught seafood or discovering the extraordinary history at the Bailiwick’s many museums, historical sites and World War II bunkers.
