Bailiwick Wide


Gill has  developed a wide range of tours over her many years of experience:

In Victor Hugos's Footsteps - A walk through the fascinating streets of St Peter Port, finishing outside the home of Victor Hugo.

Discover Lihou Island - Walk across the seabed on a cobbled causeway to the most westerly of the Channel lslands. Wander through several of Guernsey's specialised habitats and hear of ancient times right up to the present day. Enjoy tea and Guernsey gauche at the end of the walk.

Hedgerow Hike - Walk through the Sausmarez Park Kitchen Garden before a ramble through the countryside of the Castel parish's Green Lanes, fields and footpaths. Taste a sample of local produce on the way. 2 or 5 mile option.

A Walk on the South Side - Discover how a sleepy parish became the very busy home of the granite industry.

Evacuation, Occupation, Liberation and Potato Peel Pie - A walk through the streets, steps and alleyways of St Peter Port, focusing on the German Occupation during the Second World War with many family anecdotes. Finish outside the Guernsey Tapestry.

Cliff walks by arrangement - As well as bookings for these tours, Gill is also happy to provide bespoke tours by arrangement.

Below is a featurette - which features Gill - from the makers of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society film, in which real Guernsey residents share their memories of the war. Half the population of the island were evacuated, while those who remained would frequently have their homes ransacked by German officers, hunting for hidden radios and other contraband items.
