Overview

This guide offers 24 short, easy walks that take in plenty of interest, such as prehistoric sites, castles and churches, as well as museums and visitor attractions. Good paths and tracks are used, along with quiet country roads. Rugged cliff paths and occasional steep slopes represent the only difference in difficulty.

The entire coastline of the island can be explored on the Guernsey Coastal Walk, and short walks can be combined to make longer journeys. This guide also includes exploration of the smaller islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm, as well as details of the Channel Islands Way.

Located closer to France than to Britain, Guernsey has always been an intriguing destination for travellers. British visitors feel like they're at home and abroad at the same time, whereas French visitors tend to see life on Guernsey as a distinctly British experience.

With its companion volume, Walking on Jersey, offers a comprehensive guide to the best holiday walking on the Channel Islands
