Things to do on Guernsey and Sark – Podcast 22

Heather on her travels Podcasts show

Summary: Visiting Guernsey in springtime for a weekend break with the family, we walked the cliff paths and stopped at beach cafes for a crab sandwich or a slice of Guernsey Gâche. We discovered how the German Occupation of the island during World War Two led to great hardship and about the film that’s due to be made of the best-selling novel, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie society. Taking ferry to the Isle of Sark, where there are no cars, we cycled around the island for the day, enjoying locally caught lobster for lunch and visiting the Seigneurie Gardens. On our final day we joined the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations at Castle Cornet for a 21 gun salute and visited Hauteville House, the amazingly decorated  home of the 19th century French novelist Victor Hugo. We found that Guernsey has a flavour of both French and English but a character that’s all it’s own. Listen to Episode 22 of my travel podcasts or read on to discover what the Channel island of Guernsey has to offer for a spring break.
