    The Channel Islands.

    Posted by Curious hatter. on 12/6/2024, 14:02:44

    We’ve never been there, but we are looking at visiting the islands.
    They look beautiful, with much history.

    Was once told, if you’re born on any of the islands, you can choose which of the British countries, or France, to play football for. Not sure if that’s true or not.

    So, anyone on here been, any info?

    CIA.

      Did a day trip to Guernsey and a separate few days to Jersey. Was surprised at how townie Jersey seemed to be, was expecting it to be more idyllic countryside than it was, the bits I ended up in anyway. Guernsey from what I saw of it was much smaller and you could take a local double decker to see most of it. I think Guernsey was the nicer of the two but I was only there for the day. Visited the underground Nazi base on Jersey which was very thought provoking and brought it home even more just how shit the Nazis were. They killed one local teenage girl simply for painting a red letter V for example. I would recommend getting there and back via the catamaran. The trip back from Guernsey was on sea that was like a pond, on a hazy summer's day. I drifted in and out of sleep on the lower deck outside and it was bloody lovely.

        That’s very interesting, cheers.
        We went to the underground hospital on Guernsey, it was very dark.

            Your attempts at humour are like the rest of your witterings, i.e. pathetic.

        On the Everton site 'ToffeeWeb' use the search box to find the historical feature on player "Elie Hurel". I think it was posted on there in July 2018.

          Last went in 1981, saw an advert in Daltons Weekly for a B&B with evening meal for £7.50 per day
          Beer was 19p.


          I suppose prices have gone up a tad?

            Don't bother. The Channel islands will all be under water by 2025 due to Climate end of the world.

              St brelades bay on jersey is stunning. Guernsey is very difficult to drive around and less nice restaurants than jersey. Both pretty expensive and recommend a visit to Herm whilst you are there. Damn good ice cream in Guernsey.

                A camping holiday on Guernsey a very long time ago. A beautiful island, not as “touristy” as Jersey; Rocquaine Bay has a lovely beach.

                  Although they don’t have Farm Foods in the Channel Islands which is a pity.

                    I doubt if you've ever been there, loser.

                    There is a good self catering accommodation bear Devils Hole, Jersey. Good pub, Priory Inn. 2 miles from Vineyards. Easy to get around islands on bus or by car.

                      Hotel de normandie, is a not bad place to stay, 10 mins into Jersey Town centre, but has parking, which is a result.
                      Premier inn style breakfast, but has a pool etc...Nice few pubs nearby, showing sky etc..

                        Had four days in Jersey in 2017, and flew from Southend, which was brilliant. I wanted to go again as I had very fond memories from when I worked over there in 1971. Frankly, I was disappointed how sanitised the place has become (especially Gorey), compared to my previous visit. Also much more traffic on a road system not built to take it, resulting in delays and buses running late. And nowhere near as cheap as it used to be. St Helier was full of sweaties who didn't feel comfortable with being abroad. I wouldn't bother going again.

                          Flew to Jersey with my parents in 1959. Stayed in St Helier, which was lovely. The ice cream and milk were fantastic, and the food was more
                          impressive than the grub we usually got at home.

                          At the time, it was a wonderfully exotic change from drab, post-War England, and quite a few people spoke French, which was good for my
                          school work.

                          Watched sand racing (cars and sandyachts) on St Ouen's beach, visited Elisabeth Castle, Mont Orgueil and Gorey, plus a few other touristy sites.

                          By chance, we bumped into Alan Whicker near the harbour of St Helier, when he was interviewing the Bailiff of Jersey for the "Tonight" programme.

                          Most impressive trips were to:
                          - Jersey Zoo (a pioneering supporter of rare species), which was run by the wonderful Gerald Durrell (we met him and his wife)
                          - the Underground Hospital built by forced labourers (mainly Russian/Polish) under the German occupation. Really gruesome to find that
                          the workers who collapsed from exhaustion and/or just died were simply concreted into the walls.

                          Sadly, it's probably now changed out of all recognition, if the comments of more recent visitors (above) are true.
                          Besides which, the population has nearly doubled since 1959.
