Top 10 hidden gems

26 Cornet Street, Guernsey

Now owned by the National Trust, is thought to be the oldest intact building in St Peter Port. In its 200 years it has been used as a residence for the wealthy, a shop in the Victorian era and at one point even ended up as a slum!

Corbière Lighthouse, Jersey

Many visitors capture it with their cameras but very few have ventured inside. Guided visits of the lighthouse are available to get a gull's-eye view from the lantern room.

The Albion Pub, Guernsey

This Pub is in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the closest pub to a church in the British Isles due to the proximity of a gargoyle on the North East wing of the Town church.
Nigel Mansell Collection, Jersey
Formula One fans can now get up close to the Mansell Collection. You'll find Nigel Mansell's personal collection of cars, trophies - and - as he's a local resident - maybe even in the man himself.

The Ormer

The Channel Islands culinary treat. You'll probably not find these on the menu at Island restaurant as they are very rare to come by. Local fishermen lucky enough to find them often cook them up as a family feast. Why not search for yours!

Jersey Ice Cream

Jersey’s range of dairy products is made from pure Jersey Milk, from Jersey Cows (the world famous breed) which is why a delicious creamy ice cream is a must!

Traditional Guernsey Gâuche

One of Guernsey's ultimate delicacies is Guernsey Gâche. Why not enjoy with a cup of tea at one of the islands cafes! Or make your own with Guernsey's easy traditional recipe.

Old Quarter, Guernsey

Head over to the Old Quarter for the best hidden boutiques - where you'll uncover a treasure trove of shops selling antiques, paintings, vintage clothing and quirky coffee shops.

Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust

Ever fancied yourself as a keeper? Well now you sign up for a hands-on, behind the scenes experience and become a keeper for the day at the world famous Durrell Wildlife Conservation trust.

Victoria Tower, Guernsey

Collect the key from the Guernsey Museum and Art Gallery in Candie Road and walk up the steps to Victoria Tower. The strange tower dominating the St Peter Port skyline was built on the site of the former L'Hyvreuse windmill and previously that of a menhir.
