The Channel Islands are an archipelago located in the English Channel off the French coast of Normandy. Although British Crown Dependencies, they are not in the British Isles or even part of the United Kingdom. The area predominantly consists of the Bailiwick of Jersey, the largest of the islands, and the Bailiwick of Guernsey, which in turn includes Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm.
There are also several small islands, with each as beautiful as the last. When it comes to having an Afternoon Tea in the Channel Islands, be sure to find a quality-assured establishment from the list below.

Historical evidence suggests that humans have lived in the Channel Islands for over 250,000 years. It’s also likely that Celtic Britons arrived several centuries ago to escape the invading Anglo-Saxons.
There is some indication that the Romans inhabited the area, while Norse raiders were later a frequent occurrence on the coasts. In 1259, by way of the Treaty of Paris, the King of France gave up his claim to the Channel Islands.
However, the French invaded on separate occasions in the 14th and 15th centuries. During the Second World War, German Axis forces also occupied the islands.
Thankfully, things have remained somewhat quieter in recent years, with tourists a more common sight than that of invading armies. Why not soak up the rich history and heritage of this wonderful part of the world before or after visiting an Afternoon Tea Channel Islands establishment?
