The Channel Islands are situated between England and France and are the most southerly islands in the British Isles. They are independent, English-speaking territories with a mix of British and French cultures. Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands and Guernsey is the second largest. Both Jersey and Guernsey are known for their beaches, walking trails along cliffs and inland valleys, as well as their defensive castles.
They are only an hour’s boat trip away from France and both island airports have regular flights to and from many UK and European cities. Inter-island flights only take about 10 minutes. As well as their natural appeal to visitors and tourists, the Channel Islands are renowned for being an offshore finance centre with a stable economy, which provides a very attractive environment in which to live and work.
