Start the New Year in Guernsey

  • Category: Family Fun
  • Dates: Wednesday, 01 January 2014 to Sunday, 12 January 2014

Guernsey is the perfect place to relax after the chaos of Christmas and New Year. After you've disposed of the leftover turkey and got rid of the Christmas tree, get out to this stunning island with your family or loved one - whoever matters to you most - and enjoy what's on offer.

No matter the size of your party, The Old Government House Hotel is perfectly suited to your needs. There is a Kids Go Free package for people with children, while those after a Romantic Experience are also catered for. Read on for some of the activities you could get up to in January.

Observatory open evening

With its lack of light pollution, Guernsey is one of the best places in the UK to see the stars. As such, it would be rude not to visit the observatory on one of its open evenings this year. Surveying the stars is a tranquil and thoroughly enjoyable activity, and with the early start time of 6:30pm, even children will be encouraged to come along and discover the wonder of the universe. The open evening is happening on January 9th and it is free to attend, although a small donation is suggested.

Take a relaxing walk

Guernsey is blessed with an abundance of natural beauty and a landscape that is perfect for walking. From the rugged cliffs, gaze over foaming waters as they crash dramatically against the sheer rocks. Meander through fields with knee-high grass surrounding the worn path either side. The isolation is perfect for forgetting all the stresses of life.

Treasure Island

Laughter, imagination, action and music await you at this fun family-friendly show. Presented on behalf of the experienced Oddsocks production company, Treasure Island is a classic tale of swashbuckery and adventure that will thrill adults and children alike. Tickets can be obtained for just £18 each and the show runs from January 15th until the 18th, kicking off at 7:30pm every evening.
