Description

Guernsey – a beautiful island, whatever the season

We’re all familiar with the seasons - spring, summer, autumn and winter - and the weather that they bring, but what causes them and when do they begin and end?

The island of Guernsey is one of the sunniest places in the British Isles enjoying, on average, around eight hour of daily sunshine in the months of May through to September. But the stunning beauty of this tiny Channel Island is spectacular, whatever the season. 

We have produced four stamps comprising Bluebell Woods (42 pence stamp), a secluded woodland area situated at the southern end of Guernsey’s capital St Peter Port.

Guernsey boasts some of the best beaches in the British Isles and there are over twenty-five beautiful bays, ranging from picturesque and pebbled to long, flat and sandy expanses. Petit Port Bay in St Martins (56p) offers the fantastic reward of southerly sunshine, soft sand and breathtaking scenery.

In Guernsey there can be no more spectacular display of autumn colours than in the island’s Saumarez Park (62p). The largest on the island, the park houses a range of exotic gardens, including a bamboo walk, a Japanese garden and a camellia lawn along with a picturesque rose garden and a walled garden.  

Winter in the bailiwick is far from bleak; waves crashing against the coastline are a truly remarkable sight.  At the end of the castle breakwater is one of Guernsey’s lighthouses, St Peter Port harbour lighthouse (68p).
