Moving to Guernsey  (5 Answers)

Hi, I am thinking of moving to Guernsey. I am 28, single, and my current social life involves working a 9-6, playing football mid week, Fridays going out drinking, Saturday being hungover, and Sunday I spend a day brewing my own beer (a hobby of mine). I have a large group of social friends in London(uni and school), but I would say I meet up with them every Friday/Saturday. I like to visit my family every 2 months or so in Brighton.

Is Guernsey a good place to move for a profile like me! Is it easy to make a social group of friends there? Thanks

Hello, I have been with my fiancée a long time now and I am planning on moving to Guernsey to move in to her flat with her.. I don't really understand open market and local market nor do I understand how I would be able to obtain relevant licences to live and work. If some one could write down a short dummy's guide to get me on the right track that would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

car rental  (1 Answer)

Hello, does anyone know what happens re fuel when renting a car on Guernsey. Europcar site says they put in half a tank of fuel and they estimate your usage on car type and length of hire. I do not understand what they are trying to say. In other countries for instance the car comes with a full tank of petrol and you return car with a full tank of petrol. Can anyone help me.

Potato Peel Pie  (1 Answer)

Apologies if this has been asked and answered, but I've searched with no luck so far: Does any restaurant or pub in St. Peter Port serve potato peel pie and, if so, which?

Having known nothing about Guernsey, but for having the good fortune that a stop in St. Peter Port is on our ship's itinerary, I picked up a copy of "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society" and am now really looking forward to visiting Guernsey, however brief my visit will be.

While there, I'd like to try potato peel pie, even if it's made just for us tourists. Thank you in advance and happy holidays.

1 day on Guernsey  (6 Answers)


I'm going to Guernsey as a day return foot passenger from Weymouth in mid-September. Have never been to Guernsey, and I do intend to return later for a much longer stay. This is just a brief trip to get a taste of what's there to see and do.

I plan to explore St. Peter Port and take bus rides around the island. However, it occurs to me that possibly the weather won't be very good. Are there museums and places where I can spend some time inside, if necessary?

And have you any suggestions for must-see's or must-do's? Guernsey only, please, as I have such a limited time and would go to Sark and Herm on a later trip.

Thanks very much.

Passing through Guersey to France  (2 Answers)

I have a day stopover in Guernsey on a cruise. I would like to get off the cruise in Guernsey (the cruise ends the next day in Dover), and then take a ferry to Saint Malo in France. I don't know how to go through immigration and customs in Guernsey and then exit for France. The Guernsey website talks about 15% customs charge on my possession, including clothes. Would this apply to me as a one-day visitor? Can anyone help me? Thanks so much.
