Guernsey has a friendly and welcoming community of just over 63,000 people.
With flight times from just 40 minutes and ferries from 3 hours, we're closer than you think.
The island of Guernsey is comprised of 10 parishes, each with its own unique character and charm.
From pebbly coves to sheltered sandy bays, with our crystal clear turquoise waters there's a huge variety of ways to enjoy ours waters.
Whilst Guernsey has many of the things you would recognise and associate with the UK such as its language, a sterling economy, driving on the left, recognisable businesses and brands, Guernsey has a distinct twist. We have many unique and independent businesses, Guernsey-French road names and an island life culture that is more open and friendly then you may have experienced within UK towns and cities.
“Locate Guernsey were most helpful at every stage of our move. Some of the immigration formalities were rather confusing and they were able to clarify them for us. They also introduced us to a number of helpful people on the island and even invited us to a newcomer’s party to help us get started here.”
“From our previous visit we were aware of some of Guernsey's quirks; the extremely narrow roads, the unreliability of inter-island transport at certain times of the year, the higher cost of living etc. What we weren't expecting were the many hidden delights one finds on such a small island. Substantial retail shops tucked away in obscure country lanes, interesting and unusual local businesses, restaurants in unexpected and out-of-the-way places. We keep discovering such things.”
“There were a few reasons why we chose Guernsey over other jurisdictions; the lifestyle and cultural values we read about prior to moving here were a definite draw; the more temperate climate was also an advantage; the tax situation here meant our financial plans for retirement became more attractive and that was a very significant advantage; functioning Public Services was also a bonus – Guernsey isn’t perfect, but generally things work pretty well, and that makes life easier and less stressful.”
“The process of relocating to Guernsey was incredibly easy. Locate Guernsey offered all the help we needed which made our move very straight forward. The many questions via email which we raised were answered immediately and in a pleasant and friendly manner, making communication with Local Guernsey comfortable and relaxed. Most importantly though, it wasn’t just the help that we received up to and during our relocation, but their assistance with any matter we raised after our relocation, even outside of the remit of relocating, was and is provided by them.”
“The experience of moving across to Guernsey has been very straightforward and we are so pleased we made the move. We have found the relaxed island lifestyle we desired in our retirement on the island of Guernsey, and we will not tire of watching the stunning sunsets on the west coast sipping a chilled white wine!”
