VisitGuernsey launches five new history routes

 

Over the weekend of 12th April, we welcomed the first of our French journalist trips for the year, with a group from Grazia, The Good Life, Yonder, Paris-Normandie, and Marie France, making use of Aurigny’s new direct flight from Paris.  

Fortuitously the weather played ball, and the group enjoyed a tailor-made itinerary that included Hauteville House, a day in Sark, meeting Art for Guernsey, a sunrise swim, and plenty of the best food the island has to offer.  

On 15th April, ITV broadcasted a report on their evening news show, which you can view below. 

ITV News report - Mon 3 Jun:
People in Guernsey can tour newly restored bunkers at Fort Hommet this summer. It is part of Visit Guernsey's two-year focus on the island's World War Two heritage in the lead up to the 80th anniversary of Liberation Day.
