Sark is the smallest of the four main Channel Islands, located some
80 miles off the south coast of England. Whilst only three miles long,
and a mile and a half wide, it boasts 40 miles of what must be one
of the most picturesque coastlines anywhere in the world.
There are no cars, giving Sark an enchantment which is quite unique; its spell draws visitors back for their holidays, year after year.
There is also another island close by, which you can only reach by ferry, that is Herm. It is a beautiful small island, with lovely beaches.
The Channel Islands have been in currency union with the United Kingdom and the Guernsey and Jersey pound are not a separate currency but are local issues of banknotes and coins denominated in pound sterling, in a similar way to the banknotes issued in Scotland and Northern Ireland
Public holidays are the same as the UK with the addition of Liberation Day on 9 May.
