About this book

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.

This guide offers short, easy walks that take in plenty of interesting features, 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 day after day, and short walks can be combined to make longer journeys. As well as information on Guernsey the guide also includes exploration of the smaller islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm.

Biography

Paddy Dillon, prolific walker and guide book writer with over 40 books to his name, has walked extensively around the Channel Islands. He has walked the coast of Jersey several times, enjoying sandy beach walks, cliff-top paths and rugged headlands. He has also ventured far inland, into deep wooded valleys and traffic-calmed 'green lanes'. Paddy has walked, and written about walking, in every county of the British Isles.
