On arrival in Guernsey you will be stuck by how different it is to what you are used to. Different from the rest of the world - even from Jersey, it's larger neighbour. With a slower pace of life, you will find that values and attitudes are more traditional. A world-wide survey named Guernsey people as the happiest in the world a few years ago - this is probably something to do with the generally carefree and happy attitude.
The island measures just 7 miles by 4 so nowhere is far. The rugged coastline and country villages make walking a dream. For the less energetic the bus services reaches most corners of Guernsey. After a hard day exploring, the gastronomes amongst you will love the abundance of good food, especially the fresh seafood.
The capital, St Peter Port, is steeped in history. It is the oldest settlement in the whole of the Channel Islands, rising steeply out of its magnificent harbour, with quaint cobbled streets and granite houses. The traditional feel of this historic town is retained due to the strict development regulations imposed on it. You can spend time exploring the picturesque streets and lanes or enjoying the shopping facilities in the array of high street and local stores. If you don't like to shop you can enjoy a coffee or "a tipple" in the choice of quaint bars and restaurants.
