About Channel Islands
The Channel Islands include Alderney, Guernsey, Jersey, Sark and Herm. They lie close to the French mainland and each has a unique character, blending the spirit of Briitain with French culture and influence.
Originally part of the mainland, the Channel Islands were formed after the Ice Age. Archaeological evidence dates mankind's presence as early as 4000 BC and the Islands are scattered with traces of Neolithic man, including defensive earth works and burial chambers.
During the Second World War, the Islands were occupied by German forces. The German Underground Hospital in Jersey is a chilling reminder of the harrowing days of conflict. The Islands were liberated on the 9th of May, 1945.
The Channel Island's present a distinct blend of ancient past, enduring traditions, and idyllic beaches and countryside. Use the links below for more information on the Channel Islands. Alternatively, search for a specific island, port or town.
