Gardens of the Channel Islands and Isle of Wight PDF

June 19th to June 29th, 2018: Reserve Space Now!

Join Gardener and Author Marty Wingate on this tour of the enchanting Channel Islands. Located closer to France than England, these islands enjoy a beautiful climate, sandy beaches, and amazing seascapes.

While a part of the British Isles, the Channel Islands are not part of the United Kingdom. These islands recognize the sovereignty of the queen, but do not answer to parliament. We’ll spend 6 nights on the two largest of the islands with day trips to two of the more intimate and unique places.

What's Included:

  • 10 Night Accommodations with Breakfast
  • Flights and Ferry Transportation as indicated
  • 4 Dinners
  • 3 Lunches or Teas
  • Admissions to Gardens and Historic Sites as indicated
  • All Local Transportation

The cost of this tour is $4500 per person, based on double occupancy. There are a limited number of single rooms available for the supplement of $800. The initial deposit to confirm your reservation, is $1500 per person. The balance is due by March 1st, 2018. A discount of $230 per couple or $140 per single is available for guests paying by check instead of Visa/Mastercard. The overall number of participants is limited to 18 people.

Flights to London are not included in the tour cost. I’ve added some suggested itineraries and options for purchasing air tickets.

Arriving London:

Delta (Virgin Atlantic) and British Airways flights from Seattle to London arrive at Heathrow. Arrivals into Heathrow (LHR) will need to take a shuttle to Gatwick (LGW).

New non-stop Norwegian Air service will arrive at Gatwick, eliminating the need to change airports. This is the recommended option.

Delta will either get you into LHR on a nonstop from Seattle or will get you to Gatwick on a connection via JFK or ATL. Since we’re staying near Heathrow on the return, you’d book the nonstop on Delta on Friday, June 29th.

British Airways offers nonstops from SEA to LHR, but their arrival time is much too late to catch a reasonable flight to Guernsey. Unless you planned to arrive a day or two early on British, this airline will not work for our purposes.

Depart Seattle on Monday, June 18th for Gatwick (best option) or Heathrow with the plan to shuttle to Gatwick for the flight to Guernsey.

Heathrow/Gatwick Shuttle

National Express runs a shuttle from LHR to LGW for the price of £12 per person. The service runs round the clock, up to 5 times an hour, and takes about 45 minutes.

When you're ready to book your flights, contact Brad at NW Travel to ensure that the itinerary meets group requirements.
