Living in Guernsey
Despite its natural beauty, Guernsey is no hermitage: the island is home to 60,000 people and has all the mod cons you’d expect from a small English town. And for islanders who want a little variety, Jersey, Alderney, Sark, France, and the UK – are all just a stone’s throw away.
Guernsey is blessed with cliff paths overlooking stunning beaches and coastlines. World War 2 watchtowers and bunkers (many in peoples back gardens) left over from when the Island was occupied before being liberated on 9th May 1945. We still have the 9th May as a bank holiday to this date, so if you want an extra bank holiday, that’s a good reason alone move to Guernsey.
Although Guernsey is unique in many ways, it’s still unmistakably British. And that makes it such an easy place for UK residents to move to. And just to be clear, Guernsey is British, but as a Crown Dependency, it is not part of the UK
Living in here is like living in an idyllic bubble.
Leaving work at 5pm and on the beach at 5.10pm is just an example of the opportunity we have at our disposal. The morning traffic is over in 20/30minutes maximum, and you’re away.
As we mentioned WW2, we’ve done a quick video of a restored bunker situated in the parish of Torteval for you to see. There are many more bunkers like this one scattered around the Island. This one has been excavated and restored by Festung Guernsey.
Why not come and take a look for yourself?
