Cheap flights from Guernsey

Guernsey, officially the Bailiwick of Guernsey, is a group of islands in the English Channel, off the coast of Normandy. It is under possession of the Crown in right of Guernsey and therefore embraces Island of Guernsey’s 10 parishes, as well as the islands of Alderney and Sark and the smaller islands of Herm, Jethou, and Lihou. Along with the other Channel Islands, Guernsey represents the last remnants of the medieval Dukedom of Normandy. It was also the only British soil occupied by German troops during World War II. Guernsey has two main geographical regions, the Haut Pas, a high southern plateau and the more rural of the two, and the Bas Pas, a low-lying and sandy northern region and is more residential and industrialised. Guernsey’s light tax and death duties make it a popular offshore finance centre of private equity funds.

Where to go

St. Peter Port, Guernsey’s capital, is also the country’s main port. It is a small yet attractive town that consists mostly of steep narrow streets and steps on the overlooking slopes. Some of the most notable tourist attractions here include the Town Church, the town’s parish church located at the heart of St. Peter Port, and the Royal Courthouse, the seat of the States of Guernsey. The Hauteville House can also be found in St. Peter Port, where Victor Hugo was exiled and is now a museum. Castle Cornet is a historic fortress that was once a big castle that is a former tidal island. Castle Cornet is now connected to the town’s enlarged harbour by a breakwater.

Frankfurt, the business and financial centre of Germany, is the largest city in the state of Hesse. It plays host to some of the most important trade shows in the world.

There’s also Dom (Saint Bartholomeus' Cathedral), the main cathedral which was built in Gothic style. See stunning views of the city skyline and the Main River from Eiserner Steg (Iron Bridge).

Glasgow is the biggest city in Scotland and is considered as the main industrial centre of the country.

See it for yourself by visiting Glasgow Cathedral (Cathedral of Saint Mungo), City Chambers, Glasgow Cross, St Enoch Subway Station, Willow Tea Rooms, and Glasgow Central Station, among others. There are several museums and art galleries that you can also visit, like Burrell Collection, Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow Police Museum, Glasgow Science Centre, Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, and Old Govan Church.
