    The second largest Channel Island is full of wonders

    With an intriguing history, the Channel Islands are hard to classify. Neither French nor entirely British, they've always had a history distinct from their mainland neighbours. Although a British Crown dependency, Guernsey is often considered to be the most French of all the islands, and French was the official language until the mid-20th century. Now, English dominates although French is still common, and the native Norman Guernésiais is spoken by just 2% of the population.

    Guernsey's cultural hodgepodge, breezy beaches, hearty cuisine, and carpets of springtime wildflowers are just a few reasons to consider it for your next quick getaway. Take a closer look at the second largest Channel Island and you might love what you see!
