Explore the coast and culture in each of the Channel Islands, enjoying them at an unhurried pace.

Take your time to get to know these island jewels on an unhurried multi-centre holiday. So much of life seems to run at full tilt; deadlines, timetables and targets to be met. We like to think we can help alleviate all of these on one of our popular Slowly… holidays, and we’re delighted to present this latest addition to the collection, taking in five of the delightful Channel Islands. Peaceful travel by ferry and hand-picked accommodation full of character, alongside one or two gentle guided experiences makes for the most relaxing and varied of trips.
