Have a cracking Christmas with Condor Ferries
Busy shoppers searching for the best seasonal bargains can now take a festive shopping trip with Condor Ferries this Christmas. Day trips from Weymouth to Guernsey are available throughout November and December, allowing passengers to take advantage of great tax and duty-free shopping.
The Channel Islands are the perfect place to seek out a wide variety of unusual local gifts. The Folk and Costume Museum Christmas shop at Saumarez Park, Guernsey offers a mix of traditional nostalgic items including sugar mice, confectionary and chocolates, Christmas stockings, decorations and traditional wooden toys and games. Whilst the craft market held in Market Square each Saturday will provide shoppers with great opportunities to buy locally hand-crafted presents.
Christmas shoppers can also take home a taste of Guernsey for all the family to enjoy, with delicious artisan produce including local cheeses, ales and the traditional teatime treat of Guernsey Gâche - a sweet loaf made with Guernsey butter and milk and studded with dried fruit. Farmers’ and fishermans’ markets take place weekly in the run up to Christmas, so hungry shoppers can stock up on fresh, seasonal produce for all those Christmas celebrations.
Day trippers will also be spoiled for choice with the stores of St. Peter Port located just a stone’s throw from the ferry berth. Perfect for Christmas gifts, shoppers can snap up electronics, cameras, jewellery, perfume and even the famous Guernsey jumper at low duty prices. Small boutiques offer exclusive clothes, shoes and leather good, whilst the Old Quarter is the place to find antiques before returning to the ferry for the journey home.
Once back on board, passengers can take advantage of fantastic duty-free deals on a wide variety of gifts including gadgets, watches, fragrance and skincare products, and also stock up on their favourite party drinks. With great value multi-buy deals on big brand wines and spirits, passengers will save up to 40% on the average UK high street or supermarket prices.
Condor Ferries Marketing Manager, Justin Amey, commented: “Guernsey offers a fantastic opportunity for Christmas shopping, and by travelling with Condor, passengers can also benefit from some great duty free offers on board. We’d encourage anyone looking for a great alternative to the usual high street shopping trip to spend a day in Guernsey and discover what it has to offer.”
Demand is already high for Condor Ferries’ day trips from Weymouth to Guernsey throughout November and December, but sailings are still available, with tickets from £30 for an adult return.
