Practical information : Sightseeing Channel Islands
In summer, the tourist sites and museums are open every day without interruption from 10 am to 4 or 5 pm. From October until Easter, some monuments - such as Victor Hugo's house in Saint-Peter-Port - are closed or have shorter opening hours.
To be booked
Generally speaking, all excursions can be booked through local service providers. However, it may be better to wait until you get there, in order to deal with the often changing weather.
Budget & Tips
To accumulate visits in Jersey, you should consider the Jersey Heritage Pass (£35.35 for an adult, £31.95 for a senior citizen and £99.95 for a family of four), which gives unlimited access to four attractions for the price of three and for a duration of seven days (Mont Orgueil Castle, Elizabeth Castle, Jersey Museum & Art Gallery and Victorian House, Maritime Museum & Occupation Tapestry Gallery, Hamptonne Country Life Museum and La Hougue Bie). It is of course possible to buy it in advance as it is only activated from the first attraction visited.
In Guernsey, the Discovery Pass (£20 per adult and free for children) is valid for 12 months and gives you unlimited access to the following sites Castle Cornet, Guernsey Museum and Candie Gardens, German Naval Signals Headquarters in St. Peter Port and Fort Grey in St. Pierre du Bois
In addition to the end of year celebrations, there are also dates for the National Day on May 9 (which celebrates the departure of the German occupiers in 1945), the platinum jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II (celebrated in June 2022), the ever popular Battle of the Flowers Carnival (every year in August) or the aerial ballet which animates the skies of Jersey and Guernsey in September.
Guided tours are very common on the islands: whether in nature and on the coast (ask for the guides' contacts in the tourist offices) or in the museums and cultural places of the archipelago. To visit Jersey or Guernsey as a whole, why not take a guided bus tour to get a first impression?
As in France, it is forbidden to smoke in public places. Outside, be careful with the environment and do not leave your cigarette butts lying around.
