An island of delightful summer climate and gorgeous island scenery, Guernsey is a popular tourist destination in the English Channel, close to the coast of Normandy. It provides visitors with a number of distractions from coastal castle defences and cliffside hiking to museums and stately home gardens. The history of this island outpost is rich, going back to the feudal days all the way through German occupation during the second world war.
A historic walled city on the coast of Brittany, St Malo was once known as a hub of piracy but today is a quaint place to visit with all manner of interesting and beautiful buildings.
