4 Reasons to visit Guernsey | Day Trip

4 Reasons to visit Guernsey | Day Trip

Why not head further afield for a day out with a difference? Travel as foot passengers from Poole to St Peter Port, the capital of Guernsey, on board Condor’s £50m fast ferry and discover why it’s one of Europe’s prettiest harbour towns.

1). Amble around the charming shopping streets
St Peter Port is perfectly formed and has retained much of its charm in its pedestrianised shopping streets and arcades. Boutique and family-run independent shops can be explored alongside larger branded stores, from the affordable to the luxury. Explore the delights of the ‘Old Quarter’ and you will find an eclectic mix of antique shops and locally made craft shops – no two shops are the same. Many goods are priced extremely competitively in Guernsey as excise duty rates are lower than those in Britain.

2). Enjoy the beautiful harbour
Watch the world go by as you wander the bustling waterfront and admire the views of sailing yachts and fishing boats, and maybe stop by in one of the quayside cafés. 

3). Discover the history of Guernsey
It’s no surprise that St Peter Port is considered the most beautiful town on the Island; testament to Guernsey’s history, there are beautiful streets and historic attractions. Castle Cornet provides a spectacular backdrop to the town, which stands at the mouth of the harbour and offers a fascinating insight into hundreds of years of history.

4). Guernsey’s International Food Festival will be taking place
The Food Festival will be showcasing the best in island cuisine, celebrating with markets, shows, demonstrations, and interactive events. Guernsey is renowned for its delicious seafood, dairy and a whole host of local produce.

Reasons to visit Wells and Glastonbury

Reasons to visit Wells and Glastonbury

Whether you enjoy browsing quaint shops or love exploring history and heritage, this beautiful part of Somerset has it covered…

Roam the city centre and explore the history of Wells
Whilst Wells is the smallest city in England, it has plenty to offer for those eager to explore historic sights. The unspoilt centre is home to the famous 13th century Cathedral, and many historic buildings including the moated Bishop’s Palace, St Cuthbert’s Church, and Vicars’ Close – which claims to be the oldest purely residential street in Europe. The narrow streets and an eclectic mix of building styles all reflect on the continuing development of the town throughout the ages.

Discover Glastonbury’s English charm and attractions
It’s not just Glastonbury Festival which tempts thousands of visitors each year; it is well worth a visit for its quintessential English charm, culture and history. The traffic-free market town plays host to Glastonbury Abbey, Glastonbury Tor, and plenty of interesting shops and independent specialists in their field offering a good old-fashioned service.

Stewarts Tours have a day trip to Wells and Glastonbury on Wednesday 30th August 2017. Please click here for more information or to make a booking.
