Guernsey

wtorek, 17 września 2013

Guernsey is a British Crown dependency in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy. As a bailiwick, Guernsey embraces not only all ten parishes on the Island of Guernsey, but also the islands of Alderney and Sark – each with their own parliament – and the smaller islands of Herm, Jethou and Lihou. Although its defence is the responsibility of the United Kingdom, the Bailiwick is not part of the United Kingdom but rather a possession of the British Crown (British monarchy).

Did you know that:
1. Guernsey is littered with these burial mounds – Le Dehus dates back to 3,500 BC and contains a mysterious carving…
2. Guernsey may be small and beautiful but she has a huge event programme: from floral festivals and walking weeks to musical and cultural events, such as the highly popular Literary Festival and Photography Festival!
3. Gâche is the local fruit bread served with gorgeous Guernsey butter.
4. Herm Island – a real ‘get away from it all’ island paradise of deserted golden beaches, sand dunes and pink cottages is placed 20 minutes from Guernsey by boat.
