Guernsey is an island which is closer to France than the UK, geographically, but it is part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey. The Bailiwick should be distinguished from the island of Guernsey.
As well as the island of Guernsey itself, the Bailiwick includes the islands of Herm, Jethou, Burhou, Lihou, as well as two other jurisdictions, the island of Alderney and the island of Sark.
The island of Guernsey itself is divided into 10 parishes - the defence of all the islands is the responsibility of the UK but the Bailiwick of Guernsey is not part of the U.K. but rather a collection of separate possessions of the Crown (the islands of Guernsey, Sark, Alderney and Jethou each forming a separate possession).....but, enough of the history, why would you want to viist?
It is an island, with a warmer climate than the UK so you can enjoy a range of activities outside; on the beach, walking the cliffs, island hopping or dining ‘al fresco’ and watching the world go by.
A wonderful array of stunning scenery and an excellent range of accommodations from which to choose, Guernsey is an excellent holiday destination.
Enjoy inspiring walks along the cliff paths, rambles through the rural interior or lazy days on the island’s beautiful beaches, Guernsey has it all.
St Peter Port, the island’s capital, is a bustling harbour town, a tapestry of architectural styles that tell the story of the region’s changing fortunes. Here bistros, restaurants and boutiques jostle for your attention, while in the harbour ferries are readied to take you to the sister islands.

Packages can be arranged at any of our accommodations and we include a return ferry crossing - cheaper to bring your clubs in the car than fly and pay the excessive baggage fees!

Doing More … Design your holiday to suit you.
When you book your holiday with Zenith Holidays, you can be confident that we will be there to help make the whole experience as smooth as easy as possible.
During the week before you leave, we will call you to make sure you have all you need or to provide any help or assistance in some last minute touches - but, before then, do make sure your passport is valid (not required for Jersey) and peruse our upgrade possibilities - you can book up to 2 weeks before you travel but do be aware that some things will sell out - airport parking and the Meet & Greet service often do on peak holiday dates and the "Fetch-my-luggage" service is bound to be popular on busy weeks so do book that early.
If you need an airport hotel or even some "tried & tested" car games for the kids for the drive down, let us know or book them online - once you have booked your holiday, all these extras can be added in your own secure booking area.
Have a great holiday!
Save money and time by having your skis , boards, surfs or golf clubs taken to resort for you
