Regular tours leave from the Braye beach hotel at 1.50pm and from the bottom of Victoria Street at 2pm. Tours last a little over 2hrs, they include a combination of everything from historical facts and features going back 6000yrs, legends and ghost stories, adding in for our guests a little of what it is to live here in Alderney. On top of all that, every tour along the way gets to experience aspects of our magnificent wildlife, breath-taking views, wildflowers, birds galore, occasionally Dolphins, Seals and on one outing we even rescued a baby hedgehog ! Leading the tours has been enormous fun, with lots of characters on board there are always plenty of laughs.
Due to popular demand we launched dedicated WW11 history tours in 2018. Contact us for further information on 07815 549191.
