At the risk of appearing sensible..............

the German wartime hospital on Jersey is an absolute must
also take a small (in terms of boat) ride out to Sark, if it's a nice day, and WALK the whole island
the overall remains of the German occupation were a magnet for me, but they are best seen on Alderney where there are little/no rules about entering the plethora of bunkers, machine gun positions and ammunition tunnels on the island.
You get to Alderney by taking a short ride on an old, small, battered aircraft (which leaks thru the ceiling!!) and gives you the ride-of-your-little-life when landing on the cliff edge at Alderney. Enjoy!

Most people prefer Jersey to Guernsey because Herm and Sark are a lot closer to Guernsey..

Thanks for the advice guys

I think the plan now is to fly to Jersey and hire a car for a couple of days and then go to Guernsey for another few days and maybe take a boat to Alderney for a day.

I'm told that something called "tennerfest" is on in October? Apparently lots of good restaurants do special set lunches and dinners for bargain prices!!!

The planning starts here!

Thanks again for the help.

Steve

Eric, Dry Run, you can't take a boat to Alderney.
It is served solely by that flight I told you about.

Not true anymore, bumblebee cruises now operate between the two.

Jersey or guernsey you won't find much to do "end of season", the weather will probably s***e and everything's twice the price of the uk...

Martini,

How long have you worked for the "Jersey Tourist Board"?
